Arlo Essential Camera object detection

My Arlo Essential camera does a good job of identifying persons vs dogs. Is there a way to utilize that information to prevent my dog from setting off the intrusion alert in Smartthings?

Is there a difference in object detection and Smartthings functionality between having the camera connected through the hub vs WiFi direct?

Can activity zones be used to prevent the dog from setting off the Smartthings alert?

Thanks for any comments.
