Man's best friend?

For most people cats and dogs are accepted as our pet companions. Unfortunately sometimes though people can acquire a real fear for dogs. Perhaps they were bitten at some stage, or maybe it was just that a dog barked angrily and frightened them. Sometimes this pattern of behaviour can even be passed on through the parent who also had a phobia for dogs or some other pet. It could be something just as innocent as a dog jumping up in a playful way when you were a child and suddenly the phobia is formed.

My son bought his wife a staffy for her birthday five years ago and I hadn't been able to visit them since. They always came to me and without the dog. Since my treatment I have had no problem around the dog at all and I actually have begun to get quite fond of the thing
