Yellow alert dogs
6:40pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
EASTCOTT Vets has joined forces with the Yellow Dog UK campaign to help people identify dogs that need space.
The Yellow Dog campaign is a simple way of seeing from a distance if a dog needs space.
Dogs that need space wear a Yellow Dog bandana or a yellow ribbon on their leads. If you see a dog wearing one, you keep your dogs close to you or recall them to give them space.
There are many reasons why a dog may need space including health issues, a rescue dog being rehabilitated, a bitch may be in heat, it may be old and arthritic or very nervous and shy.
Eastcott Vets has bandanas in three sizes. These can be purchased from any of its three surgeries.
Ribbons are available for a donation. All proceeds go to the Yellow Dog campaign which will be used to promote the campaign internationally and Canine Partners – a charity that trains dogs to assist people with disabilities.
