It depends on what you mean. Do you mean /one day the dogs will invade,/ 
or do you mean /to conquer us one day/?

The time expression goes on the front of the clause it's a part of. 
Dependent clauses get stuck on the ends of otherwise complete clauses.

*wa' jaj nucharghmeH, yot /dog/mey
*/In order to conquer us one day, the dogs invade.
/Maybe they invade now in order that, one day, we will be conquered.

*nucharghmeH, wa' jaj yot /dog/mey*
/In order to conquer us, one day the dogs invade.
/The dogs invade one day, and their job is to conquer us, probably on 
that very day.
