Your dog should be fine! White dunce cap mushrooms are mildly toxic but are not fatal. Eating these is not the best habit, but you shouldn’t stress if he/she does it every once in a while. The mushrooms are so small that their effects on larger organisms are negligible. You could also watch your dog for 12-24 hours to see if anything comes of the ingestion. If nothing happens after that time window, everything’s fine.
