Courses help dogged postmen switch gears

     Toting heavy bags full of letters and parcels is one of the lesser challenges for Hongkong Post delivery agents. They also face rugged paths and fierce guard dogs, especially in rural areas. To ensure their personal safety, their employer offers training courses, from dealing with dogs to safe cycling.

     A dog trainer who leads one such course helps postmen to understand dogs' behaviour and get up close to a fierce dog. He tells why dogs like to bark at the sight of mail carriers.

     The story appeared in text and video versions on the website today (July 17).
