Biting dogs are a danger all year, and that danger increases as the weather warms up. 

Some 1400 dog bites occur every day; postal workers are frequent targets.

The United States Postal Service is urging dog owners to do what they can to help keep letter carriers safe.

  • First; be responsible. Control your pet.
  • Keep him or her on a leash outdoors.
  • Teach family members dog bite prevention. 
  • Let your postal delivery person know you’re taking action to protect them.

And lastly always keep an eye on your pet.
