All the Ways to Bathe Your Pup
PetBar, a revolutionary pet spa business is coming to Katy (23541 Westheimer Parkway.) PetBar personalizes each experience for the needs of their clients. Whether someone wants the VIP treatment with an expert groomer or a DIY bath and blow dry, PetBar can meet any pet and owners needs.
“We are true dog-lovers, and the commitment to the brand vision among all the PetBars owners and staff was inspiring,” says Nelly Sammon. Nelly and Bob Sammon are the co-owners for the Katy PetBar location.
Finding Love Overseas
Nelly grew up in El Salvador where her parents owned a hotel and restaurant. She continued to visit her home even when she moved away to law school. Visiting home is how she met Bob Sammon when he was serving as a U.S. Peace Corp officer volunteering in El Salvador.
Bob went on to serve with the U.S. Army in Afghanistan, but he and Nelly continued their relationship. In 2007 he proposed, and Nelly moved to the U.S. with him. In 2013 they found their way to Texas.
“Katy has always been a fun destination for us with its many restaurants, parks, family and dog friendly activities,” says Nelly.
The Sammons have two daughters, Amelia and Eva. The family has two Cocker Spaniels, Linda and Reese.
“We believe there is an opportunity to provide enhanced pet care in the community and build relationships with pet parents like us in hopes that we may earn their trust with their loving pets,” says Nelly.
When searching for the best place to start their business, the Sammon family fell in love with Katy so much that they are also decided to buy a house here.

“With the decision to launch our business in Katy, we decided to put our home on the market and relocate to the Katy area this spring,” says Nelly.
The Sammons hope to host a community Easter-themed event. They are planning for a costume contest and lots of goodies for all (especially the pups) to enjoy.
A Growing Franchise
PetBar is growing franchise pet spa that focuses on pet owners getting the best personalized treatment for their dog. There is a wide range of services so everyone can find the best service for their dog’s needs and personality.
The Sammon family loves their dogs and are happy to be starting a business in something that they love. They also plan to get involved in the Katy community and find ways to give back.
