What do yellow leads & ribbons on dogs mean?

July 24, 2017

A YELLOW lead helps raise awareness that a dog needs some space.

There are many reasons why a dog may need space:

  • Newly adopted
  • Learning self-control around other dogs
  • In- training
  • Illness or recovering from surgery
  • Shyness of people
  • Fearful of unfamiliar or rowdy
  • Intolerance of other animal
  • Fearful of unfamiliar people
  • Aging and elderly
  • Injuries or painful physical conditions like arthritis
  • Deaf or Blind

Wearing a yellow lead does not mean these dogs are “bad”, rather that they do better with space. Please maintain a respectable distance or give this dog and their person time to move out of your way.
