The Yellow Dog Project was created to bring awareness to dogs who need space while training, recovering from surgery, or being rehabilitated.
Yellow Dog - Some dogs need space
If you see a dog with a YELLOW ribbon, bandanna or similar on the leash or on the dog, this is a dog which needs some space. Please, do not approach this dog or the people with that dog. They are indicating that their dog cannot be close to other dogs. How close is too close? Only the dog or the people with the dog know, so maintain distance and give them time to move out of your way.
Yellow ribbons, bandannas or vests are available from Advance Veterinary Care. If you want to find out more about the Yellow dog project then call into the surgery and speak to a member of staff or visit the yellow dog website on www.yellowdoguk.co.uk

Balloo is advocating the Yellow Dog Campaign, requiring space when out walking in the public domain. She's such a pretty girl and a popular breed of dog, that she is always approached by admiring strangers distracting her from her much needed exercise.
She's pictured with our nurse Linda who is spearheading the campaign as Advance Vet Care sponsors and enforcing Yellow Dog ethos.
Ribbons, vests, bandanas and leads are available for purchase at the surgery. Further information is available about Yellow Dog ethos from their website
