    Probably thought oh I’ll cover my ass. Make me look like a good guy.

    To me it screams guilt.

    Never thought I’d be able to do it, but I didn’t hesitate one second when I bashed the side of a dogs head in with my diad. I don’t care how many backing reports I get from corporate when I have a house with a long driveway like that I back all the way up and if there’s a dog sign posted or it’s out it gets tossed from the top step onto the pavement.

    The reality we all have to face is someday, somehow we are going to face this issue.
    Mine came 6th day of training. Had to fight a dog off with the diad. Bashed him with the box, got lucky with a throw of the dog biscuit hit him in the eye, ultimately it was lucky #3 when I bashed him with the diad cracked the screen after the second hit and he finally left. Ever since then I've been extra, "aware ", of my surroundings and the animals in them. Especially after the last several years. After the guy in the Seattle area got mualed by 3 pit bulls and recently the woman was attacked by several German Shepherds and no criminal charges or financial responsibilities for the owners, its simply, comes to your life and career, or the convenience of someone having their package delivered that day. Look they have my choice, ups stores, or the centers. Better they pick it up than you not walk.

    This was out of my building. What they failed to mentioned was those 3 dogs also attacked 3 other people, and killed another dog. They also had training in Schutzhund trials. Surprised they weren't put down before this happened

    So do you see these practices somehow insulating you when the package turns up missing???

    Why deliver the package at all in these instances?
    I don't understand why you would put yourself in a position of liability.

    How do you use the "left at" option, without obtaining a signature ?

    And, if DR'ing in those non-regular locations.... isn't the method to leave

    and scan a delivery notice, informing the consignee ?

    I actually did that exact same thing. Except I put the delivery notice on the collar.
    Long story.

    This is coming from a supervisor who said leave it somewhere on the property using the "left at" function then put dog under comments.

    I've never been prompted to leave a signature when using left at. If I DR to a non-regular location then yes, I'll scan and leave a delivery notice on the mailbox. In general, my center likes to play fast and loose with the methods.

    That just isn't possible, unless your Center has different software for your DIADs???

    "Left At" requires a signature, no exceptions to my knowledge.

    P.S. Do you see that supervisor backing you up when a claim comes in on one of these "creative" deliveries?

    Left at does not require a signature where I work although some accounts will state "Left At not allowed" in the DIAD notes.

    If I am asked about the "creative deliveries" I'll reply as I always do- working as instructed by the supervisor.
