I’m so glad that I found Prairie Path. Zach has been extremely helpful in taking care of our pets while we are away. They also have the Pet Check Technology that allows you to know when they arrive and when they leave the residence, while also providing a brief summary of their actions. I was very impressed with their services.

These guys seriously, seriously rock. I recently moved to Crystal Lake with my Aussie mix, Bailey, who I had also recently adopted. Bailey is high-energy and has a bit of anxiety. I was in need of someone to check on her/take her out while I’m at work during the day, but I was a little nervous about trusting a dog-walking service. However, Eric and Noel put me at ease the moment we met them. We have been getting daily, weekday walks from PPPC for a few months now. I am honestly blown away every day by how attentive, capable, and...

I have been a customer for close to two years now for their dog walking services and their service has been nothing short of spectacular since day one. Their business acumen has been apparent from the start through a very attentive, knowledgeable and responsive approach to client management and the high emphasis placed on pet care and safety. I researched several pet care providers before deciding that PPPC was the ideal fit. What impressed me most was the way that they leverage technology to create transparency into their activities through the online platform. As a pet owner, one of the...

I tend to fly by the seat of my pants. Twice now I’ve left on trips out of town and last minute I needed someone to watch my two sweetest boys, Ivan and Nigel. Ivan and Nigel are Bengal cats and aren’t the friendliest cats to new people. However, it was clear from the photos Shawn sent while I was away they warmed right up to him! It’s comforting to know I have someone to count on and that my boys will be taken good care of while away! I would have no problem recommending them to anyone in Wheaton...

I LOVE Prairie Path!! Zach is awesome! Besides getting some exercise and running off that puppy energyI have noticed some improvements on her being on the leash, going up the stairs (she refused with me) and being more comfortable in her crate! I will suggest this place to everyone that ever asks about dog walking and I will continue to use them!

Prairie Path Pet Care has taken exceptional care of our world, our dog, Tyson. The Prairie Path team is incredibly knowledgeable about the care that goes into working with pets. I’ve had the opportunity to be home on a few occasions and our pup couldn’t be happier with his walker. I love how forward thinking Prairie Path is regarding the care of Tyson, as the walker has to scan a QR code at the beginning of the walk and the end of the walk. I receive an email each time they scan in and out so I know when they’ve...

I have been blessed with 3 large dogs and one my sweet pups is a bit “special needs” with one eye and a bit of trust issues. Once my dog sitters had moved away, I’ve been faced with a considerable amount of anxiety to find anyone to watch my pups at home while we travel. Once I talked to Zach (the manager) I finally felt hope that maybe I would be able to travel again. Meeting Zach and his perseverance to allow my dogs to gain trust was amazing!! He watched my pups for a long weekend and we came...

“Pre” is our energetic, loving and loyal Vizsla companion. Leaving him is difficult but necessary at times. Thankfully, Prairie Path Pet Care has been able to help me fill that void. Initially, their consultation was very thorough as several people (including our walker) participated. Not only did they become acquainted with Pre, but they carefully listened to my instructions and concerns. Since that time, PPPC has been loving, consistent, punctual and thorough in their care and appointments. Their scheduling and billing is easy and convenient (texting and online). My favorite part of their service is the emails I receive following...

We were first time dog owners so we were skeptical about having someone coming in and dealing with our new 2 month old puppy and of course having keys to our place…BUT after meeting Tom we knew we had made the right decision. You could see he genuinely loved animals by how he was with our Jada…Whenever we had a question (and i had many) he was ALWAYS quick to respond and put us at ease… I was working from home a few days here and there and I got a chance to meet Jessie…she is the one who walks...

I recently adopted an American Pit bull who has a lot of energy to say the least. When I first called and spoke to Tom I was concerned that they wouldn’t be able to care for my dog Zeus because of his breed. Tom immediately assured me that they DO NOT discriminate against any breed and offered to meet with me later that day. When Tom and Janell arrived at my apartment my dog Zeus immediately went to them wagging his tail. Janell is highly dependable and does an amazing job caring for Zeus. After every walk she sends me...
