Try it with --disable-triggers.

No. pg_dump can't guarantee a safe order for loading data when there
are pre-existing foreign key constraints in place (since the constraints
could be circular, and it wouldn't necessarily know what they are anyway).
So it doesn't try. You have to use --disable-triggers instead.
