wear bandanas and flair to make our pooches more approachable, we've also been using colored bandanas in our SociaBulls group as a means of communication. With 20-ish dogs, and walking in loud, urban areas, the bandanas give us an extra edge to keep constant communication.
Why Every Member Wears a Bandana
following the rules and giving space, it's important for us to recognize our members and be able to explain our group and structure to any curious onlookers.
Showing if Dogs Need Extra Space
Indicating a Buddy
fall out of order, the dogs who need more space wanted to be sure when they rejoin the group they can walk next to a dog who won't react back if they react. We use another colored bandana to for our unflappable dogs who can act as buddies.
wrote this interesting post about using color-coding to indicate the need for more space.
Does anyone else use a similar type of color-coding system?
