But I cannot resist typing in more right away, because I'm happy to answer your question and give you good news.

No... eating a crayon most assuredly will not be harmful to a dog. They are non-toxic.

Some dogs have really sensitive stomachs and can get an upset stomach after eating absolutely anything unusual. But an otherwise healthy adult dog is not expected to have any problems whatsoever after eating a crayon.

I hope this information helps you today.
