|I've tried multiple things with my small dog.
I've done the rug (ew)
I've done the food mat (yuck)
I've done the bathtub (ew)
and outside (uhg)
I also did newspaper, which I liked, but it was hard to keep her on it.
and now I've got her eating it out of an oversized ceramic bowl. She's pretty good at this. If she happens to take it out, I tell her to 'get her food' and 'put it in' and she puts it back in because she knows those commands.
She eats boneless beef, organs, and chicken necks out of the bowl without any problem. I'm soon going to try giving her bigger bones that she can't just eat in two seconds, so it will be harder to stay in the bowl, but I think she's good enough to eat the meat off in the bowl and then I'd allow her to take the bone to somewhere else in the house. If the weather's nice, I'll put her outside with it.
I think the easiest thing to do would be to block off a section of tiled floor and then mop or wipe the area with bleach or whatever solution after they eat. Maybe put a smooth matt down on the area if you'd rather clean that than the floor.
