Have you heard of the "Yellow Dog Project"? It's an effort to raise awareness about anxious dogs and could help to prevent injuries.
If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon tied to its collar or leash, that's a sign the owner is taking part in the Yellow Dog Project. Canine afficionados are advised to proceed with caution around so-called "Yellow Dogs."
Although wearing a yellow ribbon is a useful tool to help avoid any accidents or attacks, simply participating in the Yellow Dog Project doesn't relieve owners from legal liability.
