A new movement that is spreading around the world aims to keep people and dogs safe by raising awareness about dogs that need space.

It's simple - if you see a yellow ribbon or bandana on the dog or on the dog's leash, do not approach it.

The "Yellow Dog Project" is working to remind people to ask before approaching a dog.

Some of the reasons a dog may need space:

    - She may have health issues
    - She may be a rescue dog being rehabilitated
    - He may have had a bad experience with another dog or is just not like the kind of friendly dogs that always want to say “Hi!”
    - She may be in heat
    - He dog may be in training
    - He may be very old and arthritic
    - He may be very nervous or shy and other dogs cause it stress
