Today we were joined by Russell Breuer, who along with his spouse, founded Spot & Tango. Spot & Tango is dog food, but reimagined. Their site allows you to build your dog’s personalized meal plan with honest guidance and real ingredients.
The company was inspired by the founders’ dog, Jack. They were cooking home-made meals for him and an idea was born. Why not create a company that provided human grade cooked fresh meals full of fresh fruits and vegetables?
Lots of questions come to mind – what does it mean to be human grade and how is that different from traditional dog foods? At Spot & Tango they only use fresh, whole-food ingredients that meet USDA standards for human consumption. They never use feed-grade ingredients, meat meals or anything artificial. Recipes are formulated by a veterinary nutritionist and evaluated by another team of veterinarians. Each recipe is complete and balanced for all life stages and meet the nutritional levels established by AAFCO. AAFCO is the Association of American Feed Control Officials, a voluntary membership association of local, state and federal agencies charged by law to regulate the sale and distribution of animal feeds and animal drug remedies.
The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has published a set of questions to ask when selecting a dog food. These questions guide pet parents so they can make an informed decision when selecting food for their dog. You can visit Spot & Tango to see their answers to these questions.
Spot & Tango offers two recipes – their original Fresh and now, UnKibble™. Their Fresh recipe is prepared in a USDA/FDA inspected kitchen in New York. Ingredients are gently cooked at a low temperature and in small batches.
Spot & Tango are proud to introduce UnKibble™, dry food for dogs that offers a crunch texture and the “scoopable” convenience that pet parents are used to with traditional dry kibbles. However, Unkibble™ is produced at a state-of-the-art facility in Wisconsin using a unique blend of protein, starch, fresh fruits and veggies which are then gently pasteurized through a Fresh Dry™ process. This process retains the natural vitamins and minerals, colors and aromas of each farm fresh ingredient. Products are shipped Fedex ground, direct to the consumer.
