The Yellow Dog Project - Watch For The Yellow Ribbons

Real Estate Agent with Shahar Management


I am a big pet advocate and I was surprised to have never heard about this before.  But then again I have never seen dogs with yellow ribbons so I am not sure that it is even in our area just yet.  Check out the Yellow Dog Project.

The Yellow Dog Project -
Watch For The Yellow Ribbons:
What’s the Yellow Dog Project? It’s a global movement for dogs who maybe aren’t in the mood to get petted/fondled/coo-ed to or at by strangers. These are not necessarily aggressive dogs but may be dogs with fear, in pain, or haven’t had enough training yet.


The Yellow Dog Project - Watch For The Color YellowThey may be in training for service dog status, or be a service dog. Service dogs wear coats that carry a warning to not pet the animal which most people ignore or don’t see; the yellow or coat ribbon stands out.

The yellow ribbon or coat warns people to ask permission of the owner before going overboard on the dog greeting/petting.


This is something that makes you wonder “what took so long”. We have deThe Yellow Dog Project - Watch For The Color Yellowfinitely turned into a dog worshiping society and so many people feel the need to engulf every dog they see: not always a good idea. To learn more about The Yellow Dog Project, click here.


Note: The yellow ribbon does not keep you from being sued and is not a substitute for a good training program for your dog.


All of us need to spread the meaning of the yellow ribbon, it could save many children and adults from painful bites.

Hi Debra: Thank you for the re-blog. The yellow ribbon warning reminder is also posted in my dogs' vet clinic. My dog is not friendly to animals  but he is very good to humans. I have to make sure that there is no dog in the reception area and the access to his assigned room is clear before I would take him out of the car. I am not sure what color he shod wear:)

Some dogs are more nervous than others - this is a great idea.  Just because your dog is friendly, doesn't mean that everyone's dog wants someone else's child to run up and hug them.  

Can we put yellow bandanas on people who we should be careful with...

Debra, It's always a good idea to be on the safe side when walking dogs to keep a safe distance.  Certain breeds, like Chows, can look deceptively calm.  I think both people and other dogs just need to stay clear of them.
