The Yellow Dog Project’s (TYDP) is a global movement whose goal is to educate and raise awareness among people that there are some dogs that have special needs.

What To Do If You See A Dog Wearing Yellow

So, if you see a dog with a yellow ribbon on his leash or or yellow at all, it means that the dog needs his space. This does not mean that they are aggressive dogs, but that they need special treatment.

According to the movement, the characteristics of a ‘Yellow dog’ are defined as: “dogs who need space…they are not necessarily aggressive dogs but more often are dogs who have issues of fear; pain from recent surgery; are a rescue or shelter dog who has not yet had sufficient training or mastered obedience; they are in training for work or service; are in service; or other reasons specific to the dog.”

But why should the sign be yellow?

TYDP explains through its online page “Because yellow shows caution, unlike red that shoes danger. Yellow Dogs are not dangerous, they just need space. Plus, yellow still stands out on a leash or collar so it can be seen.”

This organization recommends that dogs suffering from fear should be trained. But even while they can use the yellow color as an aid.

What to do if you see a dog wearing yellow?

Give them a wide berth and make sure your children and dogs do too.
Also, always be sure to ask if you can approach a dog. Respect the owner and the dog, since not all dogs like to be petted.

If you are the one who goes with a dog with this yellow sign, try to be the one who walk away from the path of others. Walk him with a short leash and avoid areas with many people.

The best way to make this sign works is by passing the message to other people. If you like this idea, share.
