Fear of Dogs (Canine)



Helping you cure your fear of dogs this video download will help you.

A lot of people are uncomfortable around dogs, especially people who didn’t grow up around dogs or own them as pets. This is different from having irrational extreme fear of dogs or canines, which is known as cynophobia. While not nearly as common as the fear of insects or reptiles, it poses even more of a challenge than similar types of phobias to people, as you are much more likely to encounter dogs. Dogs are domesticated animals and common pets throughout the world, with the exception of Arabia. This means that cynophobes live in a world where terror potentially lurks around every corner, or in every park and public place.

A phobia of dogs most commonly stems from experiences as a child. If you had a bad encounter with dogs as a child or infant, such as if you were the victim of a dog bite or you were chased by a canine in your younger years, there is a chance that it can make a permanent negative impact on your psyche, even well into your adult years. Most fears from childhood do not remain once someone becomes an adult. The irrational fears that do remain are known as phobias. It’s important to note however that a phobia is distinct from a fear of something. A phobia is a crippling inability to cope with or be near something, rather than a mild discomfort around something.

If you are a cynophobe, you probably do not enjoy being around dogs, but you may have never been the victim of a dog attack or you may have no recollection of any case where you had a traumatizing experience with any canine at all. After all, these fears are called irrational fears for a reason. Sometimes, a phobia will simply coalesce due to social, psychological, and cultural factors without any other reason for the physical and mental revulsion. A phobia may also emerge for any reason at all, at any time, without warning.

Phobias are more common in people who have previous mental health issues, as they tend to be more susceptible to stimuli and react more acutely to traumatic experiences. This does not mean that all people with phobias have some kind of underlying mental illness however. Some people may not even realize that they have a phobia, as their symptoms may range from panic attacks to excess sweating and nausea when they come into close contact with a dog.

An evolutionary fear of wolves probably explains why so many human beings are afraid of dogs, as the differences between wolves and domesticated dogs are quite thin. Some people may be afraid of the dog’s bark more than its bite. The mere idea of the dog is more frightening to some phobia sufferers than the dog itself, and they may find that they feel ill during conversations about dogs, to the point that they have to leave the room. It can feel alienating to have such a physical and psychological response to dogs, especially if you have many friends who have dogs for pets. This means that many cynophobes have to significantly restrict their social activities to settings where they won’t see dogs outside, at a friend’s house, or at any other venue where it is common for dogs to be running around with their owners. This is particularly an issue for people who have to work in close proximity to dogs, such as police officers, members of the armed forces, mailmen, pet store clerks, and disabled people who have to rely on seeing-eye dogs.

Hypnotherapy/NLP and Canine Phobia

Fortunately, modern scientific studies have shown us that many people can benefit from hypnotherapy/NLP, which up until recently was criminally underestimated by the medical community. Hypnosis helps those with crippling phobias reach a state of mental clarity and calm, so that they can enter the right type of mindset to be receptive to positive changes and suggestions by a professional hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapy/NLP focuses strongly on finding the original memory or experience that caused the person to develop an acute fear of canines, so they can understand what triggers their fear of dogs, why they fear dogs, what specific moment in their life caused them to fear dogs, and any other information that is relevant to a full understanding of their mental state.

Understanding the full nature of a phobia allows it to be more easily confronted, as the hypnotherapist can help the patient learn to stop associating fear with the experience. In a hypnotic state, the patient will have full control over their own actions, and the session can be stopped at any time. Unlike some people would have you believe, hypnosis is a voluntary experience that helps you achieve perfect mental clarity, so that you can confront your fears in a safe and anxiety-free setting.

Why Hypnotherapy/NLP Works so Well

Gradually, you will find that your fear of dogs and canine animals will fade as you continue your hypnotherapy/NLP session. Beyond giving you a better idea about what is driving your phobia, hypnosis also brings you into a meditative state where you are not fully awake yet not fully asleep, and in this state, hypnotic regression can be used by a professional to help you visualize and destroy your phobia from the root.

In this trance state, you are at your most receptive state to positive suggestions, and this experience will give you the willpower you need to overcome your fears. With the help of a professional hypnotherapist, you can dramatically improve your quality of life by defeating your phobias through introspection and direct confrontation with your fears.
