If it's your dog, kept segregated from other animals, and the mulch is for non-food crops, I don't see a problem. If it is composted and aged, as humanure would be, I don't see a problem. If you are using it directly on food crops for market, I would shop elsewhere.

Unlike livestock, which are typically contained, cats and dogs often have the ability to run around, hang out with other neighborhood cats and dogs, wear leather jackets, drink booze, and smoke pot. They are a social animal and can spread disease and parasites with greater ease than other animals.
Especially appreciated this one! as I never really thought of it that way, TY Ken for that thought process...But what about the concept of Humanure, am I spelling that right?(which I've only read about briefly)?? lol Would that not apply to doggy pooh also? Not sure it is something I would practice any way, but the thought/process is what I wonder about, and how to "use that knowledge" were it necessary.
Seems to me that the animals in pasture etc, would/do come in contact with disease from wild birds, squirrel, rabbits, raccoon, rats, flies, etc that one would 'think" has more disease than we do. I'm just trying to learn, and I fully believe in the pasture/free range way of life when possible...Just would like to know thoughts about how our/doggy pooh is worse that those I've mentioned.
My objective is to "learn" from input from others, and I appreciate every thing I have an opportunity to learn so I can wrap my head around new ideas/methods of living.
