We all like to have our personal space respected, yes? We wouldn’t like and/or wouldn’t tolerate random people rushing up to say hi and/or hugging us, so why should dogs have to endure this? is the question that needs to be asked, ALL dogs should have their personal space respected, they should be able to go on walks without being rushed by unknown dogs and/or people, this is especially important when they are on lead and concerning off lead dogs approaching, never allow an off lead dog to approach an on lead dog. Some Dogs find some or all of the above even more distressing than others for varying reasons, so can their owners!.
The aim of the Space Dogs Yellow Ribbon Campaign is to have a visible sign that yellow signifies that some dogs would appreciate a little more space, this can mean from both dogs and/or people, yellow and or i need space apparel is adorned by the dog and/or a yellow ribbon is worn on the lead to signify this. It is a training tool to ASK the world ‘can we have a little more space please? while we work on stuff’
I aim to make this as instantly recognisable as many of the well known charity ribbons.
All profits will be distributed to rescue centres and dog charities.
I have many ideas of how I will promote the Space Dogs Yellow ribbon campaign, and raise funds for some worthy causes, so watch this space for more news.
If you want to know more about how someone got involved with the campaign this is a brilliant read http://lothloriendogservices.wordpress.com/2013/05/14/space-seekers/
