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.

Daisy and her pal Fin are two happy dogs!

As pet parents, it’s our job to help ensure that our dogs are healthy and well-cared for. That also means giving them opportunities to play and enjoy life! Because our pals over at Dogswell are dedicated to helping all dogs live happy long lives, they’ve sponsored this post to help us share some great tips for you and your dog:

Tips To Keep Your Dog Happy and Healthy

 

Daisy and pals at the Dog Lake

  • Socialize your Dog: Socialization is one of the keys to a well adjusted pooch. Check your community for local dog meet-up groups, visit a dog park, or schedule a doggy play date with pals. Since Daisy sometimes gets anxious with too many new dogs at once, we love play dates the best so everyone can feel relaxed and have FUN!

dogs being dogs

  • Let Your Dog Be a Dog: Let your dog enjoy nature, outdoor activities and the freedom that comes with being a dog. That means getting dirty playing in the mud with friends, running free in a safe off-leash space, or just frolicking in the grass with a favorite toy. Embrace your fur kid’s playful, uninhibited spirit—these are the things that make dogs special.

relaxing with Daisy

  • Cuddle With Your Pup: According to research, pets improve your heart health, decrease stress levels and help improve overall mood. Petting and cuddling up with your dog is good for your blood pressure and they love it, too!

20% Off SuperGravy by Clear Conscience Pet {Made in USA}

SuperGravy Promo Code, clear conscience pet

I just spotted this deal for 20% Off SuperGravy from Clear Conscience Pet with promo code RADIO. We reviewed several of their pet treats earlier this year, including SuperGravy which can be used to increase appetite in picky eaters, and for those dogs needed extra nutrition due to health concerns (ask your Vet about your dog’s specific needs).

Clear Conscience Pet Treats – Made in USA from Sustainable Family Farms {Product Review}

Clear Conscience Pet Treats

Like most dogs, Daisy wants treats…can’t blame a dog for that! She also can be a picky eater and tends to have a sensitive tummy. As a good mama, it’s my job to care about where her treats come from, what ingredients are used and how they are made. Not only do I care about her food and treats being safe and healthy, but I also prefer to support small businesses and farmers when I shop for myself and my family. So I was very excited when Clear Conscience Pet invited us to try 3 of their pet products!

Clear Conscience not only makes all of their products in the USA, but they also pledge that ingredients are 100% humanely sourced from sustainable family farms. This means that livestock sources used in their treats are free to graze on range or pasture lands, and are raised without any growth hormones, steroids or antibiotics. They also insure that their products are grain-free, GMO-free and gluten-free as well as free from artificial or synthetic ingredients. With a mission like that, it’s no wonder that Clear Conscience Pet has been selected as a winner of the 2012 Pet Age Green Spirit Award!

The first product we tried was SuperGravy. This all-natural superfood powder in Bison and Beef Recipe is made with picky eaters or low-appetite dogs in mind. It makes any pet food taste better and enhances nutrition. It can be mixed with water in a separate container and poured over dry kibble but since I like to do things the easy way, I chose to just sprinkle the SuperGravy Powder directly on Daisy’s dry kibble and then add some water to the food bowl. Daisy scarfed down her food so fast that she almost tipped over her bowl! I’m hoarding this for those times when she isn’t feeling so great and needs to eat but doesn’t have an appetite. This actually is a problem we have from time to time although she’s getting better about it, so I like having something on hand to entice her to eat if she starts skipping meals. This dry powder is so much more convenient that opening a whole can of wet food just to put a spoonful on her kibble!

SuperGravy

Daisy also tried the Lamb Airy Bites. These cube-shaped treats are made with only 4 ingredients: Lamb lung, organic spinach, organic pumpkin, and organic carrot. The lamb is roasted and then the veggies are made into a SuperVeggie coating! From watching Daisy down these, I can tell you that they are a little crunchy and very easy to eat… and yummy. It was almost impossible to get a photo of her eating one because she kept devouring them so fast that none of the pictures actually show the Airy Bites! The product info describes them as “melt in the mouth delicious”! Here, you can kind of see one before she runs off with it!

Lamb Airy Bites

The third pet treat Daisy sampled was Lamb Trachey Chewz. As weird as it sounds, these are actual lamb trachea, which are a good source of glucosamine and chondroitin as well as high-quality protein. The Trachey Chewz are coated with the same SuperVeggie coating as the Airy Bites but are more chewy. Because they are actual trachea, they are a long hollow tube so they don’t last as long as something like a solid bully stick, but are apparently delicious because after Daisy finished her first one, she went snooping around the kitchen to see if there were more! Since these treats are high in protein and a generous size, we are dolling them out slowly! You can see that Daisy is thoroughly enjoying this one (and also that it’s time for me to trim her nails)!

We are impressed with the line of Clear Conscience Pet Treats.  Not only do I feel good about the sourcing and ingredients used, but they also pass the Daisy test for deliciousness! I’d say these are a great idea for a special treat, or  (if your veterinarian recommends) for dogs who need to increase their nutrient and protein intake. To browse more treats and find a store near you or online retailer, you can visit the Clear Conscience website.
