Not a waste!

I had a horrendous dog phobia from an early age and it made my life hell walking back and forth to school alone (from the age of 5...back in the late 50`s) and I still avoid dogs at all times at age 60 so no it's not a waste of money if it has a chance of success.

waste of money. Parents should be able to identify potentially dangerous dogs and keep child away.

But how do you prevent a dog (that is off the lead) from bounding up to your child in the park?

Nice article, but David knows it's you who has the problem, and daughter knows she has to act out the dog phobia to avoid the piano, and you know it's costing money and there's no solution in sight, other than relying on David....

catch it early

Great idea! If the phobia isn't dealt with early, it will continue Into adulthood & living a life of fear isn't living. 1/2 can be torture for a phobia sufferer. So, seeing as dogs are a big part of society, I'd say a strong yes to therapy.

How old was your daughter when she finally grew out of her phobia?

Depends upon the severity and disruptiveness of the phobia.
