DOG BEHAVIOUR

The Yellow Dog Project

The Yellow Dog Project is a global project created to raise awareness about dogs who need space while in training, recovering from surgery, being rehabilitated or are scared or reactive around other dogs.

If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon or something yellow on the leash, recognise that this is a dog that needs some space. Please do not approach that dog with your dog. Please maintain some distance or give that dog and his/her person time to move out of your way.

For further information check the website at The Yellow Dog Project

You can help spread news about this project but visiting their Facebook page and sending the link to your friends

GENERAL PET INFORMATION

Talking Stones Pet Memorials
W: Talking Stones
Talking Stones is a specialist stone engraver. Since 2004, they have been creating Australia’s most recognised and loved range of pet memorials and out door urns for pets. The business came about from the frustration of not being able to find a fitting memorial their beloved Labrador “Lady”. They also didn’t want a headstone that would make the backyard look like a cemetery. That’s when they hit on the idea of engraving a tumbled river stone. Using only the highest grade of materials and quality of workmanship, every item they create is lovingly hand engraved.
