I have seen these sprout occasionally after a lot of rain. Are they poisonous? I have a dog and don’t want him to be in danger

It is perfectly normal for mushrooms to form in response to moisture. Sorry, but we were not able to id the mushroom from the photo. To be proactive and protect your dog you should rake up and dispose of any mushrooms that you see in your landscape.
