Hello Troy,

You could use one of these things to get it working..

Create one txt file, input the username and password in different
lines like


save the file(user.txt)...

Give this file as input to the pg_dump it should work

pg_dump dummy_db < user.txt > /tmp/dummy_db.sql

Hope it solves the problem, it worked for me...
