Chrysafeniosphobia is the fear of Golden Retrievers. It's often caused by traumatic experiences with the breed. Sufferers of this phobia would rather have small or medium dogs than large dogs as they may fear that another big dog might attack them. As golden retrievers are one of the most common breeds, sufferers may panic often. Severe sufferers of this phobia will refuse to go to dog parks and would only play with their dog in the backyard. This phobia can be treated using exposure therapy and/or behavioral therapy.
