Hey guys! Today I am going to review another treat that has been gaining popularity in the pet treat industry, Spot Farms! We won a giveaway from See Mom Click for a big ol' bag of these beauties and I thought I would share mine (and most importantly, Jada and the other Chesnut Mutts') opinion on them. We are also participating in a blog hop for Tasty Tuesday!

What is really neat about Spot Farms treats is that they show you where the meat is from. Looking at their website, I see that their chicken is from Kentucky and their turkey from Indiana. I am pretty surprised that there is not a beef option since it seems that all treats have a beef recipe, but maybe they will make one in the future since they are just starting out.

Love that it is human grade and all natural! Dog treats just keep getting better and better! Spot Farms has different variations of their chicken jerky: Heart Health, Flaxseed & Vitamin E, Hip + Joint, and Skin + Coat. Besides these, they also have a couple more different types of treats. I like that Spot Farms has these different variations. I think it is a good idea because we also look at food that way, especially after New Years!  (Let's just say that weight control oatmeal isn't all that great!)

We learn about Bobby and Cindy on the back of the bag, who are family farmers that provide chickens for Spot Farms. I love that we are getting back to homegrown treats and food. It is what our babies deserved all along!

spot farms chicken jerky ingredients

The ingredients are great, very limited and healthy with no corn or soy! Jada is very appreciative of the limited ingredients because of her many food allergies. One thing I found interesting is that Arthur Pet Products distributes both Spot Farms treats and Full Moon treats. I don't know their relationship fully, but they are definitely related!

Update: I met with both brands at BlogPaws 2015 and they informed me that Full Moon is their retail store line, while Spot Farms is their specialty pet store line. Besides the different places in which they are sold, they also have different types of treats for each!

So Jada, what's the verdict?

Nice and crunchy!
These treats have the same shape and texture as the Full Moon ones, I am guessing they use the same, or similar presses to make them. Jada doesn't mind as long as it gets in her mouth!

This 12 oz bag is going to last a good while! The great thing about these treats is that I can snap them into smaller pieces if I want to reward for a trick, or I can give them a whole piece if I am feeling exceptionally generous. It seems like they only come in 12 or 12.5 oz bags, which is great for big dogs, but I think if you have a small dog this is a bit much and will last forever. Spot Farms treats can be found on Amazon, Wag. com and Petco.
