2. Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but those aren't palmettos.

Those are Sagos, a kind of cycad native to Japan. The botanical name is Cycas revoluta.

3. Sago Palm - extremely toxic to dogs

That is a sago palm and it is about the most toxic plant to dogs that there is.
If a dog chews on one as little as one leaf their liver is destroyed in about 24 hours and nothing you can do to stop it.

Please keep your dog away from these plants and especially their seeds. I don't know why nurseries sell these without a warning.
