How much cinnamon will hurt a dog? Cinnamon is non-toxic to dogs according to the ASPCA.

However, in large quantities, it may irritate the mouth or stomach, cause low blood sugar or even liver disease.

Does the smell of cinnamon bother dogs? Many essential oils, such as eucalyptus oil, tea tree oil, cinnamon, citrus, peppermint, pine, wintergreen, and ylang ylang are straight up toxic to pets.

Are cinnamon brooms okay around dogs? Cinnamon brooms are toxic to dogs, but how toxic depends on if the dog has ingested the powder or the essential oil. Cinnamon powder typically requires a dose of 1 teaspoon or more to start causing issues whereas the essential oil only requires a small amount.
