I was under the impression that dogs couldn't see in colour. That was until I started to have a few difficulties on my morning walk with Maisie. It appears that she's scared of all things yellow!!! There are a number of yellow objects we pass (parking bollards, grit bins etc), but as most of these objects are also big, I put it down to the shape and size of the object scaring her. Then she started to get spooked at another area close to the school. I looked all around for anything that looked remotely scarey but couldn't fathom it out. One of the girls that I walk to school with noticed that the kerbs were painted with yellow and black stripes and could this possibly be what was scaring her. I didn't think it could be this, so walked to another area where we don't normally go which has the same painted kerbs. Sure enough, little madam lay flat on the floor shaking and refusing to move. Is this just a bizarre coincidence?
Now the next question is, what do I do? There has been a few times, where I have had to pick her up because she simply would not move her legs. I don't want her to think she's getting extra attention because of her fear as I think she will then play on it a bit.
Help guys and girls!!!
