Are you aware of the yellow dog system?

There is a colour scheme to alert other owners that your dog is either

  • not dog friendly (red)
  • needs space (yellow)
  • working (blue)
  • happy to say hi (green).

Some of our events adopt the yellow dog system, which means if your dog needs extra space then you wear a yellow armband or vest so everybody can give them before during and after a run the space they need.

There is also a charity called yellowdoguk which is dedicated to making people aware of this system.

You can purchase lead covers / bandanas and other equipment from their shop here

A lot of dog owners will still approach however it does lessen the occurance and  it also makes other walkers aware of the system if they see the flag and ask.
