I believe the response was because this comes up 3-4 times each year. Not because of not wanting to educate.
From what I have read only the cones are toxic to dogs. I have posted in other threads like this that I have a daschund that will eat anything, choke cherries, grass, sticks, her own sh##, and she wont even look at my hops. She will not even touch the cones that fall while I am harvesting. I believe that like was posted earlier it is when the hops get used in wort that they really become dangerous, as now they have the sweet grain smell. Doubly dangerous if you are making treats from spent grains or giving grains to your dog, as they cannot tell the difference(not saying dont make the treats or share the spent grains only suggesting greater caution).
Again just my observation of my dog, and my beliefs.
