There is good news for furry friends who may be wary about interacting on walks. The Yellow Dog Project is working to educate the public about approaching dogs that are fearful of other animals, recovering from medical issues, or a companion in training. The project encourages pet parents to tie a yellow ribbon to their pup’s leash to identify those who need extra care and distance. They hope that this universal signal will help nervous dogs have the space they need. The project is gaining ground, but it’s success hinges on sharing the yellow ribbon’s meaning. Spread the word!
