She seems to hate dry food but we would eventually like to have her on only dry food. We've tried the Canidae puppy grain-free formula, which she completely avoided. Then we tried switching to Blue (puppy), same thing. She still eats it but refuses to eat it just by itself if it's not mixed with wet food. Are there any brands that have worked for your dogs, particularly any with picky eaters?

(Also, before you ask, we do switch her food gradually, but I'd like to avoid having to do that a hundred times lol)

Or wait her out. Take her to the vet when she refuses to eat after you offer her three meals. Offer her her meal, give her ten minutes and remove everything after wards. Do not pay attention to her; put the food down (if she shows up) and walk away.
Next mealtime same amount. I do rotate a few brands for variety (she gets kibble in the AM and raw at PM) but refusal means no food in this house.
Check for loose teeth as that can make it harder to eat kibble. You can soak it in warm water but when she refuses it is hard to save it IMO.
