Today marks the start of the Royal Mail’s Dog Awareness Week, which is to raise awareness of the issue of dog attacks on postmen and women, and promote responsible dog ownership.

Thankfully the number of dog attacks has fallen, but as many as 7 postmen and women are attacked across the UK each working day.

The Royal Mail have asked me to display this poster at my constituency office, which gives dog owners top tips on how they can play their part in reducing dog attacks on postmen and women. Happy to do so.
