On the Kuroko no Basuke Wikia here under personality it says this about why Kagami Taiga is afraid of dogs which is as follows...

When Kuroko brought Tetsuya #2 (The Dog) to training, it is revealed that Kagami is scared of dogs. This fear originates from his time in America, where he was once bitten by a dog.

However I am not sure if this information is accurate or just made up. Does anyone know what episode in Kuroko no Basuke mentions where this fear originates from?

The Kuroko no Basuke wikia (unlike most wikias) is actually pretty good about citing its sources. The statement you quote includes a reference to chapter 74 (found in volume 9), page 9:

lower-right panel from c74 p9

The left-hand speech bubble reads:

When I was a kid back in the U.S., I got bitten by a giant dog, so [I seriously can't deal with them]...!

I don't believe this was mentioned in the anime, though. At minimum, Kagami doesn't say anything about it in episode 14, which is when the dog is introduced in the anime.

  • Oh, so it was in the mangas. I haven't read them myself yet since I have only watched the anime. Thanks. :) Commented May 7, 2014 at 11:49

It is said in the anime, I haven't read the manga either but I did got that from the anime. The reason why he is so scared of dogs is because when he was young he was teasing a dog, the dog got mad and bit him. so technically it was his own fault.
