Not sure what a fisher is?? I just cannot imagine the poodles letting anything walk right past them in the night. Gotta say it freaks me out!!!

Going to sleep with my door open tonight and probably listen all night. His dish is literally 6-8 feet from our bedroom door. No lie!

I'm confused - not difficult!!
Is this critter coming into your house or into a yard area?
I don't leave any uneaten food outside - though no chance of that with my two piggies but raccoons, foxes, rats, possums etc will all come for a snack.
Maybe your dogs don't see whatever it is a threat so they don't bark, they can get used to things that they see around a lot
My other thought is a snake of some sort, if they're hungry or lazy hunters they'll eat anything I imagine and so quiet a sleeping dog(s) might not notice.

Fishers are members of the weasel family along with minks, ferrets, stoats, ermines, etc.

I vote possums, had it happen at 3 different place I lived before.

After a while one got brave enough to come on the deck during the day and dare my cat or me to approach, well he was disposed of from a distance with a .22

Dog door. Probably a possum or raccoon. They have no fear of human dwellings.

No outside, I did not see the part about getting in your House, but possums are brave and defiant, so could be one.

Cannot understand how my yappy crew would not raise a fuss. And can possums scale a dog fence?
