Almost any kibble or kibble-sized treat works in the Hub, as long as it's firm and dry.
The maximum size of a single piece should be about 18 millimeters at its widest side
(about the size of a U.S. dime or smaller). 

The Hub fills the dish by allowing a few pieces of food to fall through a small opening, so if the food you're using is large, sticky, or crumbly, it may not dispense properly.

If your dog isn't into kibble, or eats a raw diet, you may find that using freeze-dried or dehydrated meat works well. Chopped up veggies or Cheerios are also popular low-calorie alternatives to kibble.
