Do you free feed your dogs, or are they on a feeding schedule? We have a scheduled feeding time, and we have to supervise to make sure 2 cats don't force the dogs out of the bowls, but we do leave some out later at night for a snack for them to munch on.

BTW, dog food won't hurt cats but cat food will hurt dogs. If the cats get into their nightly snack, I don't worry about it, but I do have to fend the two cats out of their dinner (they love the wet food!).

Feed dogs on schedule. Works well too for housebreaking puppies and knowing who (of the dogs and cat) eats what and how much they are eating. One of my dogs is on a special diet so that also helps to have scheduled feedings, so I know no one else is eating that but that dog.

My cat didn't make a good free feeder, so kitty is on a schedule too.

What kind of dogs do you have? Our lab doesn't let food sit in her bowl for more then the time it takes to eat it - within 5 mins

The cats are fed first downstairs and by the time they come up, Keno's well finished her food.

We don't free feed either cats or dog. If your dog is a slow eater, then you may just have to feed the dog in a kennel/crate and leave him/her there till they finish or put the dog in a separate room till they finish eating.

How Do I Keep My Cat From Eating My Dog's Food?
I've put the cat food up on the counter, so the dog can't get to it, but how do I keep the cat out of dog's food? I recently switched the dog's food from regular IAMS to senior, which is bigger pieces and I thought that would do the trick. Plus, I figure senior food wouldn't taste as good. But the cat is still eating it. My pet sitter recommended mixing in mushed up cooked vegetables, but that made the dry food soggy, so it's not as good for the dog's teeth and the cat still eats it anyway.

Don't free-feed the dog. Put the dog's food down and supervise for 15 minutes (max) then take the dog's food away. We feed dogs twice a day, but others, with smaller dogs might feed more frequently. It normally takes our dogs less fewer than five minutes to finish eating.
