Barking at Men with long hair only?

I'm not sure this is the right place - Yogi will be 9 months old on the 1st of June. I think he's fear barking but I've had three instances where Yogi has barked when meeting men who have long hair. pony tails. I don't know anyone who has long hair who is male so how do I train him to stop barking at what he may perceive as a threat? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

New Dog, Very Challenging

Has a link to 'Who Pets my Puppy or Dog" that's what I would do and did do with my "People" Aggressive GSD. He turned out just fine!

It shows the dog "you" are in control and "you" determine his interaction or not with others. He sees people like furniture they are of no concern. He learns what normal human/dog (if you ignore them also)
looks like.

I'll train my next Boxer the same way...oppsite problem with those guys, "Everyone' is a good time to Boxers!

i have no clue what to tell you. i can say that my older dog barks at any guy with long hair that approaches the car. it's always a bum asking for change. my wife and i will give each other the oh great face as he's approaching. the older dog must pick up on it 'cause she barks at every person that we feel undesirable on instinct. maybe everytime you come across a long haired guy it's you that's letting the dog unintentionally know to get this guy outta here just by your body language.

That is possible. I probably have given off body language of being uncomfortable around some of the people.

My old male had a thing with men with curly brown hair. It was the hair too, they could put on a hat and he was fine, take the hat off and a demon suddenly appeared in his mind. Never figured it out.

Never cook bacon while naked.

Weird. So maybe he'll have this his whole life then.
