I Need Your Help . . . Bentley Is Scared of My Husband

This question comes from gunrock in the Pet Peeves group.

I had posted awhile ago about our dog being afraid of men. We have talked to the humane society and they told my husband what to do. Since he has started doing that, which is spending time with the dog, feeding him special treats, taking him for walks, Bentley seems more afraid then ever. He has even stopped eating when my husband is around (and won't eat if husband is near the dish or even in the kitchen). He is growling now, and won't even sit next to me if I am sitting next to my husband.

The humane society never said he was this afraid and my husband and I are getting tired of him peeing and pooping everywhere because he gets scared. My husband is starting to get frustrated since Bentley is showing not signs of improvement, in fact, he is getting worse. Any suggestions? Please help.
