Yeah the ribbon thing is an interesting idea, but in reality if people can't respect other people's spaces even when told not to approach, they'd definitely ignore a ribbon.
My chis are very friendly, but a while back Rocky started developing leash issues after an incident with a dog. Lilo is ok, but if Rocky snaps at a dog, she started joining in to back him up. We've been working on it and it's getting a lot better, but every time I tell people he's not good on the leash and not to approach, many come over anyway.
