  • he might not be used to them yet go with him by the dogs and let them sniff his hand and introduce them slowly to him; he might just have a fear of dogs I know my son didn't like our cats at first but now he wants to hold them all the time

  • my dd hated animals too because she pulled our cats tail and was scratched and our aunts dog barked at her once.
