Who Is Spot Farms?
“Family owned” “ farm fresh” “ human grade ingredients” Labels I live for in my never ending search for top quality food and treats for Kirby. Spot Farms treats are made in the United States using regionally sourced, high quality ingredients. The treats are prepared in small batches without corn, wheat, soy, artificial colors or preservatives such as BHA or BHT, glycerin, antibiotics, or animal by-products. Real meat is the main ingredient in every treat.
Their slogan “Human Grade Dog Treats brought to you by Grade-A Humans” sums up their company mission with each package displaying a photo and bio about the farmer where that particular protein was sourced.
What Are the Products?
Spot Farms carries eight classic treats, four jerky treats for specific functions, and two natural cut jerky treats which you can read about on their website. You can find these tasty treats at Amazon, PetSmart, Petco and certain online retailers with new ones being added.

What Did Kirby Think?
OMGee please! The aromas, the textures! To test I like to place several treats in a row on the floor to let him choose his favorite. It always pleases me when he chooses the one I made but now and then he will choose a commercial brand. Testing these I set out one from each bag. I swear he had a hard time choosing as he took his time sniffing each one and then sniffing each one again before finally grabbing his choice. I thought he would take the pork ones since he doesn’t get that often but he fooled me by almost always choosing the chicken jerky. I then began leaving that one out which caused him to choose from the remaining treats. I easily tore the treats into small pieces for these trials which took about two weeks.
I make most of Kirby’s treats but I like the option of having a few bags of commercial treats on hand for those times I haven’t been able to get in the kitchen. These healthy, all natural treats are definitely keepers! BTW - the Hickory Smoked Turkey Bacon or Pork Bacon really smell and look like real bacon so if you currently buy Beggin Strips, which are one of the worst treats for dogs, then these would be a great substitute. Your dog WILL love these!
One Winner will receive two full size bags of their choice valued at $40.00
