    So I sometimes get aggrivated after ringing my seventh doorbell in a row and hearing a dog yapping. So much so I don't even ring doorbells anymore. Broke a doorbell into a million pieces the other night too. Just figure it's better to leave the things alone, since they always bring unwanted trouble. Like lady opens door, dog runs out and tries to bite u, u get :censored2: etc. I will ring doorbell sometimes still but more often I dont. Why do u ring or not ring and why does 70% of houses have a dog?

    For me as a helper I do package down then doorbell or knock and leave ASAP, but on some doorsteps if I am in tune with delivering I will do: Package down and door bell at the same time and then leave ASAP. Many houses have dogs already barking and know that I am there before I am up to the door.

    I know this is off topic, but the during the PCM they keep harping on honking horn at stop to attract attention especially for dogs, do they not know by now that dogs know we are coming from a block away. smh

    Given the increase in theft of packages this time of year, why not ring the doorbell or knock? Regardless of the reasons, it's part of the methods. One of the top complaints from customers is that drivers never ring the doorbell or knock so this is an easy concern to fix and takes no additional time when you are at the door.

    I rarely ring the bell or go up stairs. Walk th the porch edge. Set down and slide to the door. Out in the sticks. Little customer contact

    My Golden would notice the doorbell, but not go crazy. He sincerely wanted to come say "Hi".

    I like walking up to a house and just when you start going back to the truck you hear a chain moving and very Intimidating bark, that'll get you moving loo

    I ring the doorbell and wait for the customer because 99% of my deliveries are commercial. It's a nice change of pace and I usually have the time for it. If it were mostly residentials or even half, I'd still ring the doorbell but sprint back the to truck.

    I'm in my truck taking off by the time the dogs or people know I'm there. Like a :censored2:ing ninja

    We don't sprint. We walk at a brisk pace, using designated walk paths. While scanning the area for hidden dangers, such as dogs or uneven walk paths.
