Dog Awareness

Nationally, the number of dog attacks on postal workers fell by 7% in 2016 compared to the year before, following a change in legislation and a greater understanding through our dog awareness campaigns.

However, on average seven postal workers a day are still attacked across the UK, with 2,471 attacks taking place from April 2016 - April 2017. Every dog attack on one of our people is one too many.

We have developed some advice cards with the CWU for addresses where postmen think a dog might be present.  It includes advice and information for customers to help keep you safe.
