agree with Adam on not using animal feces in a composting mix. Even if
your dog was a "tomato picking and eating" animal like my Bassett Hound
"Barlow", I still wouldn't use it. There are many too many other options

NYC's Clinton Community Garden, we are extremely fortunate to have within a 6
block radus,the stables for the Central Park carriages & the NYC Police
Dept . We use it as part of out compost mix.
Never, never, never dog or cat
of great composting books out there and we have master composters on this list
who can help you out.

My view - forget it. Too much
potential for disease when using dog poop in any form, as tea or otherwise.
Not worth the risk.
Have a GREAT Day!
