Not if the dog will be poking around at cracks and crevices and baseboards:

I wouldn't just leave the stuff down. I use it to kill fleas occasionally one room at a time but keep my pets away from that room for 24 hours then clean it up well.
I read that a small amount won't do any harm to a healthy pet but I don't want them to even sniff any at all. If you are using it for roach control just put the stuff behind cabinets and fridge where they can't reach it.
