I don't think it's a small complaint, i have friends that are postmen and i for one don't see why they should get thier hands bitten when posting mail (doing thier job) through your door.

There should be some control over the dog as sometimes they can be sitting waiting behind the door and with no warning boom they're jumping all over the place trying to eat you

Personally, i think the posties should just take the mail back to the sorting office and make people come get it if they are unwilling to put a warnings or keep thier dog under control.

hi there

good luck with that phonecall !! really hope it goes well for you

ive had a quick search as am busy... but didnt come across much.... i have found this though;

FED-UP posties will today demand tougher laws against dangerous dogs. Six-thousand postmen and women were bitten delivering mail last year.

although this was published last december.... it is the most recent article on the subject i could find....
once im finished my missions i shall have another look... as i have dogs myself and they have never ever bitten anyone, they greet the postie with wagging tails !

hya i can relate

i had the same paper round for 4 yrs 1989
a dog bit me (white scotty)
i didnt complain but one day i was off someone filled in for me
the same dog bit him
he complained and the dog got put down (it drew blood)
i was angry with him (the guy)
it was an old dog with an elderly owner

sorry imo
the owner had a stroke and she always kept the dog in the house
this was just an accident and we delivered papers in the village at 6am
the dog may have thought burgler
