I have a bit of a problem, I am a first time mum and all of a sudden my 8 month old son is scared of animals! If he sees a cat or dog (that isn’t my mum’s) he absolutely loses it screaming and kicking and really panicking. I’m not sure what has caused this as he hasn’t had any bad experiences with any animals just the complete opposite! I don’t know what to do as I don’t want him growing up with a fear of animals and we are supposed to be looking after my father-in-laws dog in a few weeks. I would also like us to get a dog of our own in the near future. Any suggestions?
