You can grow them without worrying about dogs. They are only effected by the spent hops not the hop cones on the plants. Once the vines start to grow it wont put out cones for some time and the vines should be over 5 or 6 feet tall. As you train them up you should also start to remove the bottom leaves and any random cones forming to prevent any fungus growth. Therefore, there will be no plant material where the dog can even reach. I have 2 dogs and they have never shown any interest in the vines.

If you do your job right pruning and routing the plant, they should only invasively spread upward.

One of my aunts neighbors has quite a few hops growing in his yard. They have two dogs and no problem with the hops and dogs, you just have to be a responsible pet owner.
