TDTC supports the ACT Government’s Yellow Dog campaign. Yellow vests and bandanas are available from the clubhouse for use during class. Please talk to your instructor if you would like one.

If you see a dog wearing a yellow bandana, lead or ribbon, please do not approach this dog or its owner. The yellow indicates this dog needs some space.

Some of the reasons a dog may need space include:

  • still in training
  • nervous or anxious
  • old and grumpy
  • unwell or recovering post operation
  • a rescue dog being rehabilitated.

Dogs make wonderful companions. All dogs, however, can be unpredictable. If your dog needs space, consider tying a yellow ribbon to its leash or collar to let others know to keep their distance.

You can also pick up a yellow bandana or lead for free from Domestic Animal Services. They’re located at 92 Mugga Lane in Symonston and open 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday.
