Yellow Dog UK Campaign
Yellow Dog UK Campaign has been set up to focus on dogs that could be in training, recovering from an operation, being rehabilitated, unwell, a bit nervous or grumpy.
If you are walking your dog and see another dog wearing a yellow bandana around its neck or a yellow ribbon on its lead, the message is clear, the dog needs space, as it currently falls within one of the above descriptions. Free ribbons or bandanas are available from the Yellow Dog UK Campaign website.
