Default Rats--as pets

My son will be bringing two lab rats home. We have set up a habitat for them in the laundry room which the dogs have no interest in. However, I assume that the dogs will become interested in when my son starts spending time in there.

We had pet rats years ago and my GSX girls just kind of accepted them as part of the household. I was reading on the couch when one of the rats escaped and came upstairs--followed by the cat--followed by the dogs. It was a slow parade as they all were very cautious.

Anyone have any tips and advice on how to live with rats and dogs?
