Is it ok to raise one pygmy goat with a pair of dogs, would this be considered a "herd" thus satisfying it's socialization needs? Or would the Pygmy goat need a second pygmy goat to really be socialized?

At best your pygmy will think he's a dog. It might work out OK. I'd be very leery of putting a goat kid with dogs without careful long term supervision. Dogs are the descendents of predators, and goats are natural prey. With a two on one situation, playfulness could easily turn nasty. Instincts are not to be taken lightly.
