Dog Training
Dog Behavior
United Parcel Service (UPS)

Why do dogs bark at UPS trucks and not at FedEx trucks?

Dogs Barking at Shipping VehiclesIt's the diesel! The design of the UPS truck's diesel engine creates a harmonic hum that is very irritating to dogs. It would be the equivalent of nails on a chalkboard continuously to humans. Fed Ex uses a different design to their vehicles, which avoids this irritating sound.

Other answers from our contributors:

  • My dog proudly barks at both UPS and FedEx trucks because he knows I work for the Postal Service!
  • It is something about the brakes or wheels on the UPS trucks. My dog chased every UPS truck and as he started to go deaf the noise drove him crazy. He never caught the truck though.
  • Because they know the devil when they see it.
  • When any kind of car or truck enters a dogs domain it is their natural thing to do is protect their home. By barking or growling. Even some people who are not known to the home may cause the dogs to bark and seeing another dog around their home or a stray cat will cause the dog to bark.
  • Most FedEx and UPS drivers are scared of dogs, because they never know if they are aggressive or not. What they don`t know is that all dogs can sense when a human is scared, happy, excited, or even tired. When they see that the UPS or the FedEx man Is scared that is like a command to them to act aggressive in order to defend their territory from what they see as invaders. FedEx and Ups drivers are usually not known for their love toward animals as a matter of fact every UPS and FedEx man or Woman I have ever seen was mean toward my dog……..Hope this helps

How do you check the delivery status of a UPS package?

When you go to the Post Office (or other delivery place), ask for a tracking number or Delivery Confirmation. Then all you have to do is go to the US Postal website; which is on the ticket stub they give you, and print in the number. It will give you the status. I personally like tracking because you can literally track where your package is and when it was there. The first answer is incorrect. A lot of people make the same mistake. There is UPS (big brown delivery truck) and there is USPS (post office). They are in COMPETITION with one another and don't share information. To check on a UPS package, you need to keep the TRACKING number when you send it or get the tracking number from whoever sent the package. Then go to UPS.com and punch in the tracking # and it will tell you EXACTLY where the package is. For the post office (USPS) you also need the tracking # or routing # on the slip. Then go to USPS.com and punch in that #. It will tell you exactly where the package is. Hope this helps!
