  1. It is strictly against UPS policy but many drivers still do it.
    It's a good way to get bit and have a time loss injury. This practice costs the company alot of money and can permanently deform you.

    What do you think?

    I think it is total BS when I cover a route that the regular driver feeds dogs and when I show up and don't have any they get agitated and behave aggressively. It is very dangerous! I don't like dogs, why would I feed them, plus there is too much work on the package car to take the time to feed every dog.

    I only feed the little kitty cats when when they appear behind me and start massaging their face with my leg.

    How about when the owner gets agitated?

    "WHAT? All you have is my box?! My REGULAR driver ALWAYS has a treat for Princess. Sometimes a four course meal!"

    Total millennial dog entitlement generation.

    Exactly! I get allot of splits (from other routes) on mine and my route is also cut occasionally and I can tell which drivers are feeding the damn dogs. Its easy to see because they will come charging out and are super excited. One day one of them will run right under someone's tires. Plus, they are really hyper and don't realize their claws are scratching the hell out of the driver that doesn't even have any treats to give them. I would only feed the dogs that seem hostile. But I don't carry treats anymore anyway so it doesn't matter.

    As a cover driver, there's no way I'm carrying treats as I'm in a different PC everyday. I run into so many dogs that go crazy waiting for their treat that I don't have. Then I feel bad for the poor dog that the owners apparently don't feed.

    Dog treats are a necessity for a cover driver's bag, especially on rural routes. I keep a few in my pocket at all times. Never know when one will hop out from a cracked garage door or around from the backyard. I won't risk an attempt at all if they're loose and barking when I approach, but once you're halfway to the door WTF you gonna do? Best to have a distraction ready to go.

    I don't give my own dog treats unless he does his tricks. I'm sure as hell not buying box after box of treats for some jackoffs dog that I don't even know. And thanks to one dog who stole the last half of a pizza I had, they don't get anything now.

    PASinterference Yes, I know I'm working late.

    I don't feed all, but there were some very aggressive dogs on my route that wouldn't let me out of the truck that now act like big ol babies because I feed them.
