Hi Xanthe, I get VERY affected by dog’s barking. We have a dog in the office, who I love, but she barks every time the buzzer goes which nearly gives me a heart attack.

The most recent studies suggest that misophonia is a neurological disorder not a behavioural one. So in terms of ‘exposure therapy’ this is unlikely to have any positive impact – and the process itself would likely cause some distress.
