• When a mail carrier comes to your home, keep your dog inside and away from the door.

  • Never let the dog out to greet the mail carrier.

  • Do not let your child take mail from the carrier; the dog may think the carrier is attacking the child.

  • Spay or neuter your dog; it will be less likely to act aggressively.

  • Make sure your dog socializes with more people than just family members. The more contact dogs have with different people, the less likely they are to attack strangers.
