    Get it!!! You obtain knowledge, they inherit knowledge. Stop thinking they'll rationalize they don't operate that way.

    Lee, Did you notice the dog yawning right after you stopped petting him and you stood up? That meant he accepted you and wanted to calm you more!! I hope once the cameras were off that you took the time to use Cesar's message about instinct to better understand canines.

    I really feel him. I was attacked as a child and now I'm afraid of all dogs whether big or small. I have a ways to go but I know I can get there. It takes time. He asked all the right questions and expressed valid concerns.

    Cynophobia isn't necessary a phobia in the traditional sense, as it's a rational fear. Nowadays you literally have a decently high amount of chance of being mauled by a dog. Would you call someone being afraid of a bear, ursaphobic? "Oh, just go pet it, it won't hurt you. Grizzly bears in particular, are 'nanny bears'." irbin.info/loft/fy-lm-h-y/cbRrlp-3046LraE.html irbin.info/loft/fy-lm-h-y/qtSEo63crKRmxqU.html en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prey_drive Trying to train instinct out of a dog, is like trying to cure homosexuality.

    It is difficult (not impossible!) difficult for fearful people, because they know the point is to be confident, and unafraid....... ....They're not stupid. But focusing on that fact/those facts kinda intensifies their fearful energy itself sometimes; and even more so when people say things like: "Relax! Be confident". It's almost like telling someone "Don't think about penguins!! Don't do it!" ..but at that moment what do they do? -They think about penguins ofc! Self conscious/aware maybe? Don't get me wrong -- Dog Owners have great intentions!! They mean well! But it's in-line with what Cesar & Lee just said in this Vid; you almost need a certified Dog, and Dog owner to "coach" you through the experience. I feel that fearful people learn best through example & demonstration. And most importantly - a calm, trustworthy Canine!!!

    Many of us have issues with the owner(s) and not the dog(s). If I saw Cesar walking with JR, I wouldn’t be nervous at all. But the other day, I saw a pit bull being walked by a girl. Need I say more.

  • Andolique

    I am afraid of dogs which is why I just ignore/avoid them outside. But the thing is a LOT of dog owners walk their dogs without a leash and a purpose (for the dog, that is). The dog is kind of just walking around them by themselves while they sit. As a consequence, the dog approaches me. Gets in my personal space, I'm talking right by my body to sniff me or whatever, I guess they are curious but that is torture to me because I am afraid! And the owners don't react at all?!?! It just fascinates me....how ignorant and self-centered can you be? Also, just to mention: in those situations, I am too afraid to tell something to the owner because they will often react negativelly to that and start a verbal fight. Really, dog owners, please teach your dogs some basic manners and always check if the person is OK interacting with your dog. It is NOT everyone's duty to like your dog and you should not assume that.

    • Andolique

      @CA2SD Thanks, I can see how frustrating can unresponsible dog owners be for you because they make you all seem careless. I try to challenge myself though because I don't want my fear to get too much influence over my everyday life!

    • CA2SD

      I agree with you as a dog owner. I try to be really responsible because there are so many factors to consider. People have allergies as well. People just don’t like dogs. It’s ok. I hate it too. They cause so many issues when I’m walking my dog at a park that requires leashes. If you’re going to have your dog off a leash, you better keep an eye on them or they should be highly trained. I see this choice as a liability as well. I’m sorry that your experiences have not been the best. But you’re right and I couldn’t agree more.

    Junior is the best dog on earth


    haha yea, my dog always backs up when someone trys to pet her in that slow creepy way. But she is rly happy if someone just casually comes up and gives her a nice rub. I also noticed many ppl that are scared of dogs stare at them, my dog then looks also at them and thinks "Why are you starring at me? You want something from me?" and that makes the ppl even more nervous :P . Ps.: Junior is so sweet, when i watched the video i felt the urge to play with him ^^

    I would say you also need to have dogs in your life, otherwise you may develop some fear over time. We had a German Sheppard when I was a kid, and I was totally fine with it. No fear of dogs nothing. 15 years later as an adult and some news stories later, I've begun to feel uncomfortable around dogs and maybe a little fearful too. I'm planning on adopting a dog soon to get over this and be comfortable around dogs again.
