Okay...so Aidan is 4 years old, and for the past few years he has been TERRIFIED of dogs. It doesn't matter the size of them, tiny or huge, he shakes and cries. Nothing has ever happened to him, that we can recall to cause this fear he has. When he was younger he loved ALL animals, including dogs. My ex has friends who have some pretty big dogs, and Aidan has always loved them.

My question is....does anybody have any idea on how to get him over this phobia of his? We have many friends who have dogs, and I've been hoping that the more we let him around the dogs, and show him that they don't hurt him, he would slowly ease up, but no luck so far. I keep telling him that if I thought the doggy would hurt him I wouldn't allow the dog around him!  Any suggestions would be awesome!
