Yellow warning products or yellow space awareness products are used when walking an anxious, nervous or reactive dog. Walking reactive or anxious dogs in public is challenging, especially when strangers and dogs walk over to say “Hi” to your fearful dog. Sometimes avoiding scary triggers is impossible so we use yellow dog warning products or yellow space awareness products to let people know that our dogs need space or to be ignored.
Yellow space awareness products are yellow dog leads, yellow collars, yellow harnesses and even yellow raincoats.
Yellow is used as it is the official warning colour for caution. A pure yellow is the most luminous of all the colours of the spectrum and the human eye processes yellow first. It’s the colour that captures our attention more than any other colour so it can be seen from a distance and that is why we use yellow.
Yellow creates awareness and educates.
