I Need Space

Color: Red

Some dogs need a little extra space and that's perfectly reasonable. Whatever your pup's disposition, this leash sleeve will let everyone know that they shouldn't approach your dog and that they should give them a little extra room.

This leash sleeve is designed to help you advocate for your dog's needs while out in public. Whether your dog is nervous, reactive, or just overly friendly, letting others know about your pup's specific situation will help you both have a more comfortable and confident experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here's some extra information about our leash sleeves

Materials and Dimensions

Each leash sleeve measures 9" x 3" (when folded) and features heat-transferred vinyl or silkscreened text on both sides.

They are made from durable waterproof canvas with a hemmed edge and 6 strips of velcro to hold the sleeve in place on your leash.

Care and Washing

These leash sleeves can take a beating – we have some that we've used for years.

If they get dirty, you can wash them in the sink with warm water and dish soap. Gently scrub the fabric to remove debris, rinse and allow to air dry.

Fabric Color and Meanings

The color fabric we use for each leash sleeve follows a simple red, yellow, green system similar to a traffic light.

Red indicates that strangers should stop (ie: don't approach this dog), yellow indicates that they should exercise caution, and green means that the dog is friendly.

Our black fabric is typically used for general information like "In Training" or service dog messages.

Orange is typically used to indicate that a dog does not get along with other dogs.

We also offer blue, purple, and pink fabric for leash sleeves but we won't put cautionary phrases on these colors as it may send a mixed message to the reader.


Leash sleeves can be customized with nearly any text or symbols, as long as they fit within the 9"x3" area.

Fabric options include red, yellow, black, green, orange, blue, pink, and purple.

Text is printed in either white or black depending on the fabric color, for maximum contrast and visibility.
