First, he doesn't "hate" dogs, he's just scared of them. He's never lived in a home with a dog.
He hasn't been to my house yet - obviously.
Even when I tell him stories of how Bear lies nose to nose with me in the morning when I'm waking up, to speed up the process so he can get food of course - he tells me that I need to not let my dogs near my face. And how it's dangerous and that they could really bite me and do some damage.
I have never known anyone that's afraid of dogs - and I have NO idea how to make this happen. I really like the guy - so....I'm going to have to make the move at some point and invite him over, but my dogs LOVE to jump and bark when someone comes in. I've never trained them out of it because I'm a single woman living alone and I like that they react to people coming in my house.
I am VERY open to advice.
