I may start with gradual exposure of stimuli to identify how sensitive the learner is to the phobia of dog such as images of dogs and the vocal word of dog. If the learner is able to tolerate these types of stimulus without a reaction then I would move forward with other stimuli such as videos of dogs, sound of dogs, stuff animal of dogs and animated toy dogs but each in isolation, not all at once. Once the learner is successful with those types of stimuli then I would move to a real therapeutic dog for very brief of time and paired reinforcement. This process would need to continue gradually to allow the learner success before the learner can pet a dog.
