Persistent Dog Anxiety And Fear

Cesar, I have a two-year-old Pomeranian who is afraid of everything; and so worried about things falling on him.  Although since I’ve had him (about one year), nothing has fallen on him.  He even approaches his food dish as if a snake will attack at any minute.

Hello Mr. Millan, We have four dogs, no real behavior issues other than the smallest one has become very afraid of telephones. It started with cell phones, but now he runs outside if you so much as pick up a phone (we have a dog door and a pen), and it takes much coaxing to get him to come inside, even though our weather here has been in the 20s and he has little fur. He will lay in the snow shivering. What can we do to get him past this? He is afraid of other things (vacuum, hairdryer, cameras,
