Why dogs wear yellow

Do you know why dogs wear yellow ?

Basically, dogs who wear yellow need space from other dogs and people. It is a warning not to approach.

We came across Yellow Dog UK recently. This is a fantastic campaign whose aim is to help educate dog owners and the public to recognise that some dogs “need space”.

It is hoped that dogs wearing Yellow will become a recognised symbol and bring awareness for dogs who need space while training, recovering from surgery, or being rehabilitated. Eventually, everyone will know why dogs wear yellow.

This noble goal is achieved through snazzy yellow accessories for the dogs who need a bit of extra space. For example, the jacket and lead modelled below by Bella.
