Yellow Ribbon Dogs

If you see a dog with a yellow ribbon or something yellow on the leash this is a dog who needs space. Please do not approach this dog or its people with your dog. They are indicating that their dog cannot be near other dogs. It means you must maintain at least a 3- lead length distance from that dog (approx. 12-15 feet or 4m). There are many reasons why a dog may need space:

• Maybe your dog has health issues and recovering from surgery or is in training.

• The dog maybe a rescue dog and is being rehabilitated (the world can be a very scary place for these dogs.

• Your dog may have had a bad experience with another dog or just not like the kind of friendly dogs who always want to say “Hi”

• Your dog may be timid or nervous around other dogs

• Your dog may have had a bad experience around other dogs with behaviour problems.

Whatever the issue may be,“My dog needs space, so kindly respect it”


Please ask a committee member if you require a yellow ribbon.

Important things to remember

1. If you have young children with you, be sure they only approach a strange dog with the owner’s permission

2. No smoking is allowed on club grounds

3. Age limits: handlers must be a minimum of 12 years of age.

4. Pups must be a minimum of 16weeks.

5. We recommend not to jump your dog, if it is under 12 months of age. Larger breds 18months


Evacuation Plan:

  • Members are instructed, that in the extremely unlikely event of a fire in the Clubhouse, they are not to attempt to put out the fire. We are not trained firemen. The correct procedure is to notify a Committee Member and anyone nearby (if possible), then with your dog, proceed to the Assembly Area, near the Swan Street Entrance, and wait. A Committee Member will wish to check that everybody is safe and accounted for.
