Postmen get course in dog psychology

The German post office has started giving mail workers lessons in canine psychology. Officials say the number of dog attacks on postmen this Xmas were the lowest in 10 years after the lessons.

Deutsche Post spokeswoman Sylvia Blesing said: "The number of attacks is dropping, in some places by as much as half. The reduction began after we starting teaching our postal workers how dogs think. We tell them not to run away if they see a dog coming and how to react in a dangerous situation." Postman Rolf Schulz from Berlin, who attended the course said: "It gave me a real insight into how dogs behave and what causes them to bite." Trained animal psychologists explain why it is not possible to cycle faster than a dog.
