The Royal Mail and the Communication Workers Union have recently launched an appeal to pet owners to keep animals under control during the school holidays this summer when postmen and women call to deliver mail. 

Over 3,100 attacks have taken place on postmen and women since April 2011. These attacks usually increase during the prolonged summer school holidays as parents and children are at home with dogs being allowed unsupervised in the garden or out onto the streets without restraints. The number of attacks has actually fallen by 14% nationally since 2010, but it still remains unacceptably high.
