Are they perhaps trying to bury it? Willow, when she was fed kibble, would use her nose and kind of dip her head and make pushing motions as if she were trying to bury it. I use a stand for her food bowl but have put the bowl on the floor in the past. She would take her toys that were scattered about and use her now to push her toys on top of the bowl to bury the kibble. My corgi also used her nose to bury things. Once we came across a dead fish washed up on the shore and she used her nose to push sand over the fish.
So when you say they are bumping the bowl, I'm wondering if they are actually "burying" the bowl.
