I just got wind of this movement and wanted to learn a little bit more about it. In a nutshell, it is a global initiative to give those dog owners, who do not want other people and/or dogs to approach their dogs, a way of alerting people to that wish. It’s the simple act of tying a yellow ribbon around their leash…I’m assuming we retractable leash users would tie it around the handle(?). Here’s a snippet from their website.
It sounds like it might be a great way of avoiding potentially dangerous situations with both the dog and their owners. For more information:
