Spot & Tango Review + Coupon: Fresh Dog Food Delivery Service

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Dog lovers, we’ve heard from many of you who are interested in feeding your dog real, fresh cooked food but aren’t sure where to start. It can be a challenge to know the right recipes and ingredients to use, to make sure your dog gets the proper nutrients. Plus there is the hassle of extra grocery shopping, measuring, cooking and packaging of all those meals. Like you, I want the best for our dog Daisy, but without all the guesswork and extra time in the kitchen.

We’ve recently been introduced to Spot & Tango, a meal delivery service for dogs. It’s fresh pet food made with locally sourced ingredients, cooked to order in their USDA certified kitchen just days before arriving at your door. We accepted Spot & Tango’s invitation to try out their dog food delivery service and are excited to tell you all about it.

Dog Food Review Spot and Tango

This Spot & Tango dog food review shows the quantity and recipes we received based on Daisy’s personalized dog food meal plan. Your dog will get their own personalized meal plan based on the info you give when you sign up for your trial subscription on spotandtango.com. All of the recipes are human-grade, fresh, ready-to-serve meals made with fresh fruits & vegetables. No artificial additives, preservatives or fillers.

After taking the quiz and receiving your personalized meal plan, your dog’s meals are delivered directly to your door. They arrive packed in dry ice, and even in South Florida, ours were all still frozen after the box sat out in the sun on our porch til we got home the day it arrived.

You just open the box, defrost a few days worth and serve. Keep the rest in your freezer for later. At first I was concerned about the amount of freezer space Daisy’s dog food would take up, but 2 weeks worth fits easily on the small top shelf of our freezer, next to where the ice maker is.

It’s important when switching your dog’s food that you do so gradually. Our first shipment included full instructions on how to transition our old dog food to the new one.

In addition to the helpful feeding instructions, I love the info about recycling. There is very little excess packaging, and the green insulation foam is actually biodegradable and dissolves in the sink with running water. I’m sad I forgot to get video of it dissolving but I was really enjoying watching it melt away, and I forgot!

Back to the feeding schedule and transitioning. Out of extra caution, we took things even more slowly than instructed. I started with a spoonful a day for the first few days and then went on to use the fresh food as topper on Daisy’s kibble. They actually have a subscription you can choose if you only want to use the fresh dog food as topper and don’t plan to fully transition from dry kibble. Some dogs like the crunch of dry food and people have different preferences for the mix of food they like to feed their pups. Spot & Tango make it easy to strike the right balance, whatever you decide to do.

They include a bag clip to keep leftovers fresh. I love the little attentions to detail like this one!

As you can see, this meal is Lamb and Brown Rice dog food. There’s spinach, whole peas, chopped carrot pieces, parsley, apple cider vinegar, and fresh blueberries accompanying the ground lamb and brown rice. The personalized info sheet we received with our shipment includes the full list of ingredients for each of the three dog food meal varieties we received. Recipe details also include an AAFCO Statement about the nutrient profile for each variety of dog food in your plan.

The other two varieties we received were Turkey & Red Quinoa and Beef & Millet. Your dog’s plan will be personalized for their needs, age and size. You can check out Spot & Tango’s Dog Breed Knowledge Base to learn more about personalized dog food for breed-specific, young, old, sensitive stomach, overweight dogs, etc.

Hopefully you can see how frosty cold everything was when I opened our box for the first time!

Daisy is really excited about getting her own special box of freshly cooked dog food, and I love the convenience. The personalized recommendations and quality, real food ingredients are also important to me.

Give Your Family the Gift of Pet Insurance

When friends and family get a new pet, they often ask what pet insurance I recommend. I always give the same answer: PetPlan Pet Insurance.

It’s the pet insurance we’ve had for Daisy since adopting her 9 years ago, and we’ve never regretted the decision. We’ve had to file at least one claim every year and have never been denied. It really takes some of the stress out of having a sick pet, knowing that cost doesn’t have to factor into making decisions about their care and treatment.

We all want what’s best for our pets. If you haven’t already done so, take the time this holiday season to give your family the peace of mind that comes with having really good pet insurance. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving. PetPlan has the most comprehensive coverage for dogs and cats, with up to 10% OFF in discounts when you sign up online here.

Remember that pets are family, and a lifetime commitment. It’s your responsibility to plan and budget for their care. Pet insurance is an important part of that plan, and helps you with unexpected vet bills if your dog or cat gets sick or injured.

Just some of the things we love about PetPlan:

  • Easy app for filing claims
  • Very quick reimbursement
  • Choose your own deductible and copay
  • Their super friendly 24/7 customer service
  • Proud supporter of Pets for Patriots
  • Preferred pet insurance provider to AARP members
  • 42 years in business
