Might want to wash your dogs paws off when they come inside. The N,P and K shouldn't hurt them, but the inactive ingredients could cause the paws to dry out.
Agree if the fertilizer spills and the dog walks on it quite a bit, but once the product is applied, there shouldn't be too much chance of getting enough on them to to anything.
If you're that worried about it, apply it during the evening when rain is coming or run a sprinkler on the grass once you apply it in the evening because it doesn't take much water for it to dissolve and soak into the soil.
I apply the fert before a good rain coming in or just water it in, then after it dries up, I let the guy in my avatar back in the yard. Not so much that they will eat it but when they clean their paws, they'll get it in their eyes and mouth, chew on their bones...
The grass always looks greener, on the other side of the fence, but the dog over there might be meaner, on the other side of the fence… Stay in your own yard, play in your own yard!
If it has weed control or something with pesticides you should definately water the lawn afterwards to make sure that it soaks in. The dry stuff can stick to paws and the dogs may lick it off getting them sick.
