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.
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?
