How do I kill/get rid of the mice without hurting the dog?

I recently adopted my first ever dog
so I'm kind of learning as I go - bear with me if the answer seems self-evident.
The problem this week is I have mice that I'd like to get rid of but every solution I would normally use seems like it will be hazardous for Eddie. I've always sworn by poison but I'm afraid even if he can't get the poison he might eat a poisoned rodent. Snap traps may not physically injure him but I bet they would scare the hell out of him if he put a snout in them. Ditto for glue traps. I've considered the zapper style traps but A. its pretty pricey and B. I'm not convinced he couldn't/wouldn't get a paw or even *shudder*
a tongue into that.
So dog-having-mefites: how do you get rid of the mice while keeping the dog safe.
Links to the more esoteric product suggestions would be much appreciated as the retail selection is somewhat limited where I live.
