Quick Smiles:

  • Dog with “obsession” eagerly waits for garbage truck
  • Owner captures adorable video of dog’s excitement
  • Garbage workers give dog pets and treats

Every once in a while, you come across a dog that has a special bond with certain workers. That’s exactly the case with Otto the dog, who has fallen head over paws for the garbage truck workers.

In a video posted on TikTok, Otto’s owner captures his adorable obsession. As soon as Otto hears the brakes of the garbage truck on Thursdays, he can’t contain his excitement.

According to the caption, Otto can hear the truck from a mile away. This dog is truly dedicated!

When Otto hears the sound of the garbage truck, he doesn’t just run outside—he catapults himself out the door! He’s determined not to miss a second of saying hello to the sanitation workers.

Otto’s enthusiasm is unmatched, and he jumps up and down, scratching at windows and doors until his owner lets him outside.


Once outside, he patiently waits for the garbage truck to arrive, his whole body wiggling in anticipation.

But here’s the best part: the workers don’t ignore Otto!

In the video, one of the workers runs right up to him and gives him some pets.

It’s clear that Otto’s love for the workers is reciprocated. Who wouldn’t want to be greeted by this adorable dog during a workday?

One viewer commented, “I’m sure they look forward to seeing Otto just as much as Otto does seeing them.”

Another viewer pointed out that Otto will sometimes get treats if the owner is working that route.


So, is Otto in it for the workers or the dog treats? Either way, it’s a win-win situation!

As precious as this video is, not all dogs are as keen on befriending workers who come near their houses. In fact, according to the USPS, over 5,300 postal service employees in the U.S. were attacked by dogs in 2022. Houston topped the list of cities with the most dog bite incidents involving USPS employees. And that number doesn’t even include incidents with other delivery service drivers.

While mail carriers are trained to be observant of their surroundings and dogs, it’s also the responsibility of dog owners to understand their pets’ behavior. Dogs often respond with fear or aggression when they see delivery workers, as their instinct to protect kicks in.

To overcome this response, Pet Keen suggests proper socialization and introducing young dogs to as many people and situations as possible.

Other solutions include keeping your dog in a separate room during mail time, double-checking that all doors are closed, and training your dog to remain calm and lie down.

So, if you have a furry friend who loves garbage trucks or any other workers, make sure to capture those adorable moments!
