When I had a dog, I just set the dish/skillet outside*. Occasionally the dog didn't finish one in a day, so I left it there a week or so till something else did. Probably slugs; it was polished super spotless. Or raccoons, as I didn't feel slug-track slime. I rinsed them good in hot water just in case.
* Unless there was a lot of oil in the skillet, in which case I set it in the kitchen trash to drain most of the oil off, before offering it to the dog.
