Self planted rose?

It might be simpler (and certainly a lot cheaper) to look here and try to identify it first but of course, if it's grown from seed it won't be a known variety - it will be a cross of two different roses.

Weed or not

Pet safe?

I think most of the proprietary mosskillers have a period when you need to keep pets off. I use Evergreen 4 in 1 and for that you need to keep pets off until it rains. Evergreen Mosskill Solution says keep pets off until it dries which might be easier. I think that was the one I used when I had pets and I treated the lawn on a sunny day and shut my dogs and cats in until it had dried. Whatever you use the dead moss will need raking off though as other people have said. I have an electric lawn raker which is no more effort to use than a lawn mower so that might be an option.

It's best for EVERYONE to keep off the lawn until any treatments have dried - if you get them on the soles of your shoes you can discolour your patio, paths, carpets etc - footprints all over the place!!!

They'll have to cope with the lawnmower at the front - should just about keep them under control
