I can only identify the 1UP's and the power-ups

I have no background knowledge in mycology whatsoever. But I would like to improve my mushroom-identification knowledge from zero to at least beginner-101 level. What resources [online, print books, or other] might be most useful for someone [me] who wants to be able to recognize the mushrooms near his home in Upper Valley VT/NH? Bonus points for resources that will help me to understand whether the mushroom is dangerous for dogs to ingest.

Basically, every walk with my puppy [obligatory pic]
is a referendum on whether he should eat the mushrooms we encounter along the way (I say no, he says yes). I steer him away from most of them, but am neither sharp-eyed nor fast enough to keep him away from all of them. So, as I pick them out of his mouth, I'd like to be able to gauge better how worried I should be.
