So basically, make sure that the ants cannot get to the dog food, maybe put it inside of a larger dish or pan that has either oil or water inside to trap the ants. Vasoline smeared around the base of the bowl, etc. can help too.
Bottom line, the ants have to find the KM Ant Pros naturally, and begin feeding. This has to become their natural food source over all other food sources. When this happens, the ants will start to die (slow acting bait) and before long the ants are gone. It really is that simple.
Don't expect to find piles of dead ants, etc. You just stop seeing ants. Don't give up yet, keep on. It's early in the season (March), and it just takes some time.
