Hey. Just looking for something to do with my dog and mushroom hunting seemed like fun. Gunna train her to sniff them out.

Question, are there any mushrooms in Florida that I shouldn't even touch? My idea was to just scoop up everything she found and have you guys ID them until I knew what everything was.

Welcome to the forums; we've gained quite a few Floridians lately.  I've never heard of a mushroom that was dangerous to pick up and have been handling them for over 50 years without any kind of reaction.  They're much safer than plants like Poison Ivy, Stinging Nettles, or Giant Hogweed.  Just don't let your dog eat them before you're sure of their ID.
