Yes, I have two cats and two dogs. My cat would prefer to sit on the kitchen counter and watch my males in a 5g, the 29g is on a stand and is a bit too tall for him. Orion, the dog who likes the fish, is a lot taller than my other dog and cats so he has no problem. Kind of scared he's going to jump on the tank and cause damage though, lol. He also watched TV, very entertaining.
I have heard about the special way of vacuuming EC, I practiced a little before adding plants/fish so hopefully it won't be a huge deal. The MTS at Petsmart are in their plant tank, so not housed with fish...not sure if that makes a difference. Since you said gas pockets are possible in the EC, I'll probably look into getting some because I'd rather not have that problem if I can help it.
