SALISBURY, MD. — Spot Farms announced Aug. 13 a distribution partnership with Pet Food Experts to add its dog treat products to more than 4,500 independent pet stores across 34 states.

Spot Farms manufactures its pet treats in small batches in the United States with regionally sourced, antibiotic-free, USDA-approved animal proteins and ingredients. The company’s treats are all-natural and human-grade.

“We really wanted to partner with a distributor whose knowledge and relationships in the pet industry could help us tell the Spot Farms story the right way,” said Ryan Perdue, founder of Spot Farms. “…Pet Food Experts really showed us that they understood what the Spot Farms brand means and we’re excited to have them share our story with independent pet stores all across the country.”

The company offers jerky-style treats, as well as freeze-dried treats and soft chew treats for dogs. Some formulas feature functional ingredients to support mobility, skin and coat health, while others are intended for intermittent treating or training.

“Spot Farms offers pet parents the ability to feed their pets treats that come from family-owned farms across the United States,” added Antoine Seailles, market strategy manager for Pet Food Experts. “The ability to provide transparency as well as high-quality products with all human-grade ingredients is something that we look for in a vendor partner, and we could not be more excited to add Spot Farms to our portfolio.”
