Chef Karen

The Gourmutt Beastro and Barkery is a small, family owned business located in the beautiful, historic Old Port section of Portland, Maine. Having a nursing background, Karen understands the importance of maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet. “For decades, dogs were an afterthought, something you fed after you fed your family”, giving Karen the idea to focus on the diet for dogs and canines.

Creating human-grade food for these pets, not only are they eating healthier, but they are being ‘treated’ too. Karen spends a lot of time reviewing and researching key ingredients that are not only healthy for these pets, but something that they will like.

Yappetizers, barkscotti, pupcakes and a number of other special treats make this ‘barkery’ one that animals love to visit! All of the food created is made fresh, never kept stored on the shelf. Seasonal and special occasions call for treats too, so stop by the store to see what we have freshly made!
