If you’re fortunate enough to adopt the dog before this issue arises, the most beneficial and proactive thing to do is to make a concerted effort to socialize your dog or puppy with people of every different race or nationality you can think of. It’s a phenomenon that people try to sweep under the rug, laugh off, or simply pretend isn’t happening; then it gets whispered about in embarrassed tones afterward.

Essentially, any time a prejudiced pup reacts neutrally or positively to a person of color, dog owners should reward them. Particularly when dealing with rescue dogs, people often assume that if a dog reacts fearfully or aggressively toward certain people, he must have been abused by people who resemble the ones who triggered his reaction. Roxy is a particularly sensitive dog yet this hasn't bothered her, it might have done when she initially came to live with me but doesn't seem to now. That's why we should habituate them with people of different races, wearing odd clothes or whatever. So proportionately more dogs are socialized around people with lighter skin, and therefore have a stronger reaction to darker-skinned people.That’s going to put the dog on edge because they always notice that kind of thing and they bark or show their teeth. Relevant to your question, this guarding/protection applies not only to interlopers but also to characters who don’t fit in or appear importantly different from the rest of the dog’s pack.

Whole Dog Journal’s experts are recognized veterinarians, dog trainers, groomers and dog food authorities. I think one of the other reasons people are so reluctant to talk about their dog being “racist” (there’s that ugly word again) is they feel it could imply they, too, are racist.

However, if we take a look around, we can see that the world is getting smaller and our society grows more diverse by the day.However, I don’t think you can train such a reaction out, other than by treating the dog as you would if it were edgy about anyone. I don’t know what oriental people eat a ‘lot’ of, but it seems sensible to me that a very different diet may mean a different smell.

It's just another habituation thing - skin colour as a variable just like people wearing sunglasses or hats, or certain colours or shapes of dogs or whatever else exposed to or not in the critical puppy socialisation period. Preferably, you’ll try to help your dog alleviate his fears, so he can walk with confidence in the world and enjoy all it has to offer. As soon as and whenever the handler sees her dog noticing someone, she can begin feeding the dog a constant stream of tiny bits of high-value treats, or begin offering play with the toy to the dog. What the dog might be picking up on is other peoples anxiety, you have interpreted it as "racism" and now you are anxious if you see someone.

And cyclists (he's even been known to bark at a pedestrian who was walking to his bike, was impressed at that insight). You can shrug it off and act like it’s no big deal, but know that this is not a problem that is going to go away by itself.
