This is a Carpet Beetle, probably a Varied Carpet Beetle, Anthrenus verbasci, and it is a common Household Pest. Though adults feed on pollen and will not do any damage in the home, the larvae of Carpet Beetles will feed on a wide variety of organic materials in the home, including shed pet hair. While they are mostly just a nuisance, they will also feed on woolen fibers found in carpets and upholstery.
