Is Hunden wrong?
Came here to ask this! I knew from practice it was Hunde, but upon hovering over "dogs", it said "Hunden", which I tried for fun, and it told me it was wrong... so why exactly is Hunden suggested in the first place, I wonder?
Because Hunden is also plural of Hund, but in the Dativ case.
why fressen and not essen?
Essen is "to eat" on a human context, and Fressen is "to eat" on an animal contxet
Why don't we have an article before Brot? Like: Die Hunde fressen ein Brot or das Brot?

Fressen is the infinitive verb as well as the 1st and 3rd person plural (wir fressen; sie fressen). Frisst is the 2nd and 3rd person singular of Fressen (du frisst; er/sie/es frisst)
