My dogs are eating food (no 's')

 

It's not possible to have one 'food', so it's not necessary to apply the 's'. 

 

If you refer to 'food groups' or 'foodstuffs' - these do have an 's' in the plural, but that's because the 'group' or 'stuff' is what is pluralised.

I'll also add that you may need to be careful with your verb conjugation.  If you have one dog you should use the 'he/she/it' conjugation of 'to be' -- 'is'.
