My 6-year old son is EXTREMELY TERRIFIED of dogs. I don't own any pets, simply because it's not something I grew up with. I am completely comfortable around other people's pets, but my son dreads even visiting someone whom he knows has a dog or cat. It gets to the point where, just yesterday, a neighbor's dog ran out into the street where we were standing, and he literally jumped ontu the neighbor's lap. I try explaining to him calmy that, though some dogs may do him harm, when he visits someone with a dog, he can relax. But nothing helps. He seems to blank out in sheer terror. Please help.
