    Been bit twice. Once on the ankle by a german shepherd while sitting in the jump seat helping another driver. The other was on the arm by a basset hound. The basset got me while the home owner was in the middle of saying " Oh don't worry he won't bite."
     
  7. Hope you didnt pull your pants down, too far!...lmfao

    In all seriousness can drivers carry knives or keep one on the truck in case of dog attacks?

    We all used to carry little knives to cut off COD tags. No Rambo knives though. Pepper spray would probably be allowed but you should never need it if you are aware of your surroundings and learn what dogs to avoid. There is always the possibility of a dog coming out of nowhere and attack you though.
     
  10. I carry a 12 Inch, snap on..screw driver!..not a weapon.....But, go ahead make my day!

    During a meeting for inside employees becoming driver helpers, before last peak season, a guy was terrified when they mentioned the possibility of a dog biting us while jumping. The guy got into an argument on rather or not he could bring a weapon ( he mentioned pepper spray, a knife, even a gun). He walked out after they told him he was not allowed to bring any sort of weapon to protect himself.
     
  14. At least 12 times. I've stopped counting. Most nips a couple that drew blood and one that was deep. I never reported it. As long as I know the owner and they are up to date on their shots it is what it is.

    I think I got bit 5 times while a package driver. A woman had a locked gate. I honked, she came out followed by two little ankle biters. She came outside the gate followed by her dogs. Don't worry she said, they won't bite...at the exact time she said it, both the little bastids got ahold of an ankle. I don't understand ! they never did *that* before!

    Pepper spray doesnt work on dogs.

    If I am at a stop with a big dog that I am not familiar with, I carry a 5-cell Mag Light with me. Mag Lights are pretty much war clubs with light bulbs on one end, having one allows you to carry a bona fide weapon in your hand under the guise of having a flashlight.

    I almost had my leg torn off as a child in a dog attack, but in 26 years of UPS driving I have never been bitten.

    jumpman23 Oh Yeah

    I always make it a habit to carry the diad with me at every stop regardless of commercial or resie. Better to go into a gunfight with a gun than without 1 lol.

  20. Our top seniority driver has this variety of dog biscuits. I've never had the heart to give a dog the green ones while covering his route. Looks like a flavor they just wouldn't like. Haha.
