Gaia did at first, she alerts when strangers come in the yard but now she doesn't even notice.

Your pup see the mail person and alerts by barking. The barking drives away the mail person, thus self rewarding the behavior.

Well over here they don't get out of the mail truck they drive up to the mailbox so they don't really care much. They might stop and stare for minute then they off to find and follow me.

However I did have a Boxer /Doberman mix that would go ballistic but that would go for anyone that stepped foot on our property..

My dog loves the mail person, ups, and FedEx . The mail lady leaves him treats in the box. He quietly sits in the window and watches.

Rafi does--he will drag me if he even smells our letter carrier because he ADORES her. She tells him that he is her favorite dog ever and gives him tons of treats.

I introduced her as a pup out by the truck, Apache loves everyone but now the mailman knows.

Most of my dogs would bark if people approached the door. Not the mail person specifically, if they see them on the street they will be friendly- it's just they will alert to someone strange coming up to the door.
