Is this poisonous to dogs

This is a Big Legged Bug in the genus Acanthocephala, and to the best of our knowledge, they are neither venomous nor poisonous to dogs or other creatures, however we would not discount the possibility that if a Big Legged Bug came into contact with pesticides or herbicides used in the garden or home, or if the bug fed from a toxic plant like oleander, that those factors might have a negative effect on a pet that swallowed the bug.
