It’s not good to meditate with animals in the room. When we are transcending, we allow something delicate to wake up in the depth of our own being, something unique to our human physiology. If there are two different physiology types in the room, there is an incongruity. The benefit of the meditation is significantly reduced for the person and insignificantly enhanced for the animal. It is an inefficient energy transfer. Better to meditate alone in the room and when the meditation is through, we will have more to offer our pets.
