I've been doing extensive yard work this month, because of a lack of
time I buried a bunch of dog crap in the back of what now will be my
veggie garden. Is there anything I can use to treat it, its about 6
inches deep.

Also how far from it can I plant veggies and things?

I would not recommend planting a vegetable garden where you've buried
dog excrement, as the ground may harbor bacteria that would make
humans very ill. Even those who compost dog excrement (for example: ) do not use it around
vegetable gardens.

You should be able to plant a few feet away from the area, though, as
long as you don't accidentally till the soil together.

I live in Terrace BC, Canada,  1000 KM North of Vancouver. I just need
to know how far I can plant my veggies this year and if the poop will
be decomposed enough to till the whole garden next year.
