Barley Labs is an all-natural dog treat company that is co-owned by Scott Beaudry and Theresa Chu. It all started with Scott Beaudry’s home brewing hobby. Beaudry realized that after he made a batch of beer he was left with a large amount of spent grains. He was unable to compost or recycle all of the grains so he and Chu experimented with creating dog treats for their dog who is aptly named “Barley”. Their dog treats were a hit and they decided to start a home-business creating gourmet dog treats.
