The Yellow Dog Project

Yellow Ribbon Dogs

Tara Palardy, creator of the Yellow Dog Project, designed it to prevent people from approaching dogs that need some space. Dogs that wear the yellow ribbon may be aggressive dogs that don't play well with others, or perhaps just got out of surgery, or simply don't like being approached quickly.  

What this Means

Quite simply, avoid dogs will yellow ribbons on their leashes, collars, or anywhere else on their body. The main point of this movement is to prevent you or your dog from becoming injured.

It is not clear where Yellow Dogs should, or should not be allowed. It would be assumed that dogs that require Yellow Ribbons would not be allowed at dog parks, and parks with lots of kids around. Of course this is only our opinion, please share your thoughts and opinions below! Do you own, or know someone that owns a Yellow Ribbon Dog? Have you ever heard of the program?

Spread the word about Yellow Ribbon Dogs!

I've never heard of the Yellow Dog Project but I believe it is well worth promoting. I expressed my feelings about this project on the page where I make a comment about the rare dog breed: Cesky Terrier but will make another comment. I had a really great Dalmatian who died of a stroke and died at age 15 1/2. She was such a great dog, gentle, loving, she had a service dog temperament. Ex: While on the phone one day when I was sick, I started coughing and said I needed to get something for the cough. When I turned around my Dal had gotten my medicine from the sofa at the other end of the room and brought it to me. She had been trained to do many tricks and services, but this was not one of them. The yellow dog project would have worked well for me when walking my Dal. With all her great traits, she never allow another animal to come close. She was gentle and sweet around most individuals, children, cats and even rabbits but another dog would make her go crazy. I tried for years to break her of this but she would always get aggitated around dogs, cattle, and horses. The Yellow Ribbon Dog Project is one to share about with everyone.

I've not heard of this before, but I think it's great!! My rescued dog (a 12 pound Sato) gets along fine with kids but has a lot of issues with other dogs; if they are very big, or come running up, or want to play (which she totally doesn't get), she will go on the attack. We stay away from the dog park for that reason, and she is never off-leash, but people who do allow their dogs off-leash need to remember that while their dog may be friendly, that is not the case for everybody else's pet, and some do not react well to exuberent greetings! She is improving, and has learned to tolerate the few dogs she sees regularly, but she needs her space. If people knew that a yellow ribbon means approach with caution, that would reduce the nasty surprises.
