Our 2-year old female JRT -- Daisy --- is afraid of small children for no reason. She is the center my husband & mine lives (we have no children). She has an ideal life...goes to play school 3 times weekly, gets lots of walks. She is an GREAT & LOVING dog except that on our walks she does bark aggressively at small children. This weekend a small boy came running up to Daisy to play. Daisy was really afraid of this kid....she didn't bit him, but just wanted to run away. How do I teach her that kids are OK. I can't find a mother willing to let us use her child to desensitize Daisy.
