Why some dogs need space

by | Oct 5 2020

If you see a dog with a YELLOW ribbon, bandana or similar on the leash or on the dog, this is a dog that needs some space. Please do not approach the dog, or its people, with your dog. They are indicating that their dog cannot be close to other dogs.

How close is too close?

Only the dog and his people know how close is too close so maintain a good distance and give them time to move out of your way.

This is the message of the Yellow Dog Campaign from Yellow Dog UK, a UK-based charity that we at Mark + Chappell are proud to support.  


Some dogs need space - Mark + Chappell


Why might a dog need space?

There are many reasons that a dog might need space. It may…

  • Have health issues
  • Be a rescue dog being rehabilitated
  • Have had a bad experience with another dog or is just not like the kind of friendly dogs that always want to say “Hi!”
  • Be a bitch in heat
  • Be in training
  • Be old or arthrithic
  • Just be nervous or shy 


A yellow dog needs space!

In short, a yellow marker on a dog means it needs some space.

If your dog needs space, help bring awareness by making yourself identifiable with one of the many products available from Yellow Dog UK, or in our newly launched packs of VETIQ Serene-UM.
