Why do dogs take food away from bowl to eat?
One reason is that a cat's primal instinct is very much the same as a dog's pack mentality; they want to get their food away from the (instinctual) fray so they can eat it in peace.
Cats may also do this because some felines don't like their food and water bowls near one another.

Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
