Are all dogs angry at the mail carrier?

According to conventional wisdom, dogs will go postal if they see a mail carrier. This is not a personal attack on the person who delivers your mail.

If the dog manages to make the mail carrier leave, he will be rewarded. He may also continue barking when the mail carrier comes back another day.
