I'm a bit surprised to hear that dog attacks/bites to postal workers have continued to rise BBC News - Rise in dog attacks on postal workers, Royal Mail says I don't think it will be long before they start refusing to deliver to homes with dogs if we don't start taking responsible action to avoid this. We sealed our letterbox up years ago and when we get a new front door won't even have a letterbox fitted. We've got a decent sized lockable mail box on the wall next to the front door with a section for post and a section for newspapers. I would not expect a postal worker to have to put their hand in my door without providing some safety measures for them. We don't really have a front garden either, just the drive, a flower bed and steps up to the door so my dogs do not have access to the front of the house ever. So do you still have a letterbox and if so have you taken any measures to ensure your dog cannot get to the postie? If the dogs have access to the front of your house (or wherever the post is delivered) have you taken sufficient steps to make sure the dogs cannot get to delivery people?
