Regaining confidence with dogs

Anonymous's picture

As a child I had a phobia of dogs, I got over this phobia and actually got to love dogs and have my own pet dog. Up until recently I really enjoyed walking her and meeting other dogs and dog owners on walks.

A few months ago, my dog was attacked and defended herself quite fiercely hurting the other dog badly and since then she has been occasionally aggressive to other dogs. But in general she is very friendly and a dog trainer has advised she should be fine off-lead around most dogs as long as we are careful and put her on-lead and move away if there are any problems.

I have totally lost my confidence and no longer enjoy dog walking, I always feel very anxious and imagine the worst and want to keep her on-lead and away from other dogs at all times despite the advice we got.

I have already got Overcome Fear of Dogs as I thought my old phobia might be affecting me but is there another download that may help me regain and increase my confidence and reduce anxiety?

Hi there,

Thank you for your question. I'm very sorry to hear about what happened to your dog and you! :(

Below you'll find links to a couple of downloads that should help and I'd also recommend Stop Thinking the Worst.

Best wishes,

Uncommon Care Team
