Swallowfield Show Dog Show is a #dogsinyellow friendly event.  “Yellow Dogs” are those that might be nervous, anxious, in training, recovering from an injury, or dogs that just prefer to keep their distance from people and dogs.   The organisers, judges and stewards at Swallowfield Dog Show know that some dogs need space, and will be considerate of the needs of dogs wearing a yellow indicator, whether this is a lead, bandana, harness, jacket or other item.
