You just have to reduce the CD of zombie dogs to 0 in any way you choose.
Zombie dogs (45 CD) with tribal rites (reduce CD by 25%) is 34 seconds. So the off hand + any two others will do. That is the standard for middle class zdog WD.
On the budget end, set using four pieces + tribal rites is also doable but you get crappier DPS the more pieces you have to use.
On the top end, the strongest/richest WD in game can probably use 4 pieces and ignore tribal rites altogether with perfect 20 + 8 + 9 + 8 items. I know zekromancer has a totally ridiculous dog mara but another than him I don't know anyone else with a mara that won't mean a massive lose of DPS. This opens up one passive slot for POV (+30% DPS)

People do not generally buy ZD gear for PVP, its for MP10.
Most of your successfull PVP builds will be the massive HP high armor & AR, high DPS fast attacks speed with very high dps builds combined with the CC's.
Not saying ZD is not going to be a good pvp build for the TOP ZD users, I am saying its a long way to the top.
I just bought my set, total cost for the 3 pieces was about 350m. Problem is it then extincted my Skorn which meant another 450m for my 1h. Now I need to increase my IAS so I upgraded my pants for 134m, but to make up for the lost health I felt the need to upgrade my shoulders for another 155m... You can see where I'm going with this :).
Sure, you can run it with just the 3 pieces but I'd contend a min run dog build is far less effective than the same amount of money poured into bears, at least solo. In a group things change since DH and other WD really benefit from unlimited globes. If you are happy to relegate yourself to a complete support role then you could probably get all 3 pieces for 250m.

I agree with SilentMike, build is very fun and effective but cost goes way up if you want to really do damage. I think my next move is to a talrashas chest since i don't need the set bonus form Zuni. Then a Visage with CC, double Int and at least 8 sec cool down. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/SpizyDryRub-1750/hero/6060753
