Preventing Dogs From Biting Mail Carriers

Event Description:

Each year, more than 6,000 letter carriers will be victims of dog attacks.

~ If a letter carrier delivers mail or packages to your front door, place your dog in a separate room and close that door before opening the front door.

~ When possible, restrain your dog with a leash to establish a safe and secure distance from the letter carrier.

~ When your children are at home with your dog, remind them not to take mail or packages directly from the letter carrier. It is safer for the letter carrier if one of the parents receives the mail or package instead.
