Is it racist to prefer different types of dog?
- 8 months ago
I would not consider liking a certain type of dog racist, you just like what you like. I think of it as what your sexual preference is when thinking about this you may like your partner to be taller than you or so. This is not considered racist then why should your preference in dogs be that way.

• "Is it racist to prefer different types of dog?"
Only if you regard certain TYPES of dogs as being of different races, AND regard some of those dogs as automatically despicably inferior, while regarding the other TYPES as automatically superior.
Otherwise you are not racist. I doubt that enough people regard TYPES of dog as each being a RACE for you to termed racist for having a mere preference.
But if you DO think that way about various TYPES, a better term would be TYPIST. (Wait for the squeals from the people who are expert users of typewriters! But the way that words get "borrowed" for different purposes is not MY fault, however.)
If, as I do, you like almost all dogs except the nervous cowards and the individuals that bite you as they stroll past, you are neither a racist nor a typist. However, I could be labelled as a BREEDIST!
I consider the PROPERLY-bred-&-trained GSDs (German Shepherd Dogs) to be the most versatile and useful of all the dog BREEDS. Sadly, many pooches registered as GSDs are unworthy of the breed's name. But equally, many Border Collies are unworthy of THEIR breed's name, they being scared of sheep - and they are ranked at #1 for intelligence & trainability. See:
based on the opinions of North American obedience judges, who rated my breed - the GSD - as "only" 3rd.
However, dog-seekers need to be aware that the more intelligent a dog is, the more easily it will outwit boring, lazy, unobservant humans who are too cheapskate to spend at least a year being observed and COACHED in a competent weekly training group, too unaware to realise that brains faster than their own get BORED so start inventing ways to make life more exciting.

It is hereditary that you're this stupid or all your own doing to compare dog breeds to human races?

Human races developed naturally. Human races for the most part are different physical characteristics, but little difference beyond that.
Different dog breeds were developed thru human intervention. We have different breeds because each breed has its own unique working drive, activity level, trainability, temperament, size, coat type etc... All for a purpose. It isnt the same thing as race.

No, racism is when you discriminate against one race for whatever reason. Preferring a type of dog is just a preference

No. It is not. Why? Do you hate all 'black dogs'?
