angelas Lucky always went off on the mail man. Shania would join in with her, but once Lucky was gone Shania didn't care about him anymore.

Canadian dog owners aren't going to have to worry about whiny mailmen much longer. Soon enough there won't be any home delivery.

SoCal Rebell BTW here's what my front yard looks like.

SoCal Rebell My front yard has brick pillars with wrought iron gates between them. Mail person made me move my mailbox from the corner pillar of the gate to the other side of the driveway pillar because my GSD almost got him a couple of times.

Chicagocanine 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.

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

BowWowMeow 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.

Loneforce 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.

BellaLuna 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..

boomer11 mine just sits and watch. i'd be annoyed if my dog barked at the mail man every day

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