What is yellow dog UK?

Yellow Dog UK is a UK-based charity that understands that dogs often need space while training, recovering from surgeries, during rehabilitation or for a number of other reasons.

The Yellow Dog Campaign is about understanding that some dogs need space, and the reasons why.

Watch this space…

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. 

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.

    Why are Serene-UM and Yellow Dog UK a great match?

    We believe that our partnership with the Yellow Dog UK is a combined move that will help increase awareness of their message and of the positive benefits that Serene-UM has on our pets’ quality of life. And of course, the partnership will also raise money for this good cause and help spread the message to dog owners across the UK and Ireland.

    We believe that the Yellow Dog Campaign also understands the importance of a pet’s physical and mental health as clearly as we do and we are proud to have taken concrete steps to support the campaign further with every Serene-UM pack sold.
