Have you ever met a dog marked with a yellow ribbon, even in the form of a yellow bow tie or scarf? Not only did it suit the dog very well, but the yellow ribbon in any form also has a deeper meaning than just aesthetics and the fact that the dog in question needs space! Therefore, other dogs and people should avoid him completely.
The Yellow Ribbon project was created in 2012 in Sweden under the name Gulahund Yellowdog and nowadays, fortunately, it is getting into the subconscious of the general public, especially dog owners, even in the Czech Republic.
AND WHAT CAN THE YELLOW RIBBON ACTUALLY SIGNAL?
Yippee many dogs suffering from problems, whether they are psychological or physical , which limit the dog's normal contact with other dogs and people.
For example, a yellow ribbon can signal a timid dog who can be afraid of both people and other dogs. It can be a convalescing dog in need of rest, a dog in training, an unsocialized dog, a hot bitch or a new puppy mother, a dog not looking for contacts with other dogs, or an elderly person whose sight and hearing no longer serve them as well as before.
So be considerate. If you meet such a dog on a walk, do not let your dog, child or yourself approach it. Give him space , because you never know if your dog will need it one day.
YELLOW RIBBON FORM
As mentioned above, the yellow ribbon can take several forms . Most often, you can meet a yellow bow tie, which can be attached directly to a collar or leash. Practical yellow scarves with clearly visible inscriptions such as "do not touch", "I'm afraid", "I need space", "in training" etc. are also available in pet supply stores. You can also purchase a yellow vest, leash cover and collar, or a straight yellow ribbon that can be tied to a collar or leash so that it is clearly visible.
