I have two Chihuahua’s which are both rescue dogs. One of them is only 4lbs and the other one is also tiny. Both are very afraid of people and won’t go by anyone but Eric from Prairie Path. Eric comes in to let them out and things have totally turned around. He is wonderful with them and they are so happy and comfortable with him, something I never thought possible. I can’t say enough about this service. They go way above expectations to make my animals content. I could never thank them enough for taking that kind of time. Anyone...

Prairie Path has been phenomenal! My family loved them and we got GREAT reports about their friendliness and professionalism from the senior community where they walked my mother’s dog. They were as impressed as we were. We used Prairie Path to care for my mothers dog as she was suffering from Alzheimers. They enabled my mom to keep her dog when she could no longer care for her. Getting twice daily emails detailing the dog visits helped my sister and I keep up to date with how the dog was doing and what she needed but also gave us regular...

I feel 100% confident that my 2 dogs (Samson & Ruby) are in good hands with any of their employees. My dogs get walked every weekday around noon and sometimes need pet sitting for several hours or days here and there. I’m pretty sure that our main walker (Christienne) is Ruby’s favorite person in the world. All their dog walkers take great care of my dogs. I receive an email when the dog walker arrives and scans a magnet on my refrigerator. Then I receive an email when he/she leaves with a summary of the walk and the amount of...

My wife and I just moved to Wheaton a few months ago and when we went out of town for 5 days we were very concerned about leaving our cat Belle at the house. We found Prairie Path Pet Care and did a consultation with Tom Henaghan who walked us through the service and met with Belle. He seemed very thoughtful and professional so we decided to give them a try. We are so glad we did! The service is fantastic and the real-time online updates made us feel at ease. It is great that you can see when they...

We had Prairie Path Pet Care pet sit our two dogs (60 lbs and 35 lbs) for 4 1/2 days. Choosing to leave them at home so they would be happier was our main reason for not boarding. Our dogs are like family to us. Our male does not like to let strangers into the house but after a visit with the sitters prior to our leaving he fell in love with them and even snuggled on the couch. Both dogs did great and our very specific directions for care were followed reliably. Both dogs were way more relaxed when...

I absolutely recommend Prairie Path Pet Care. They have been fabulous with my dog. Ive used their dog walking service for almost a year and it has been reliable and happy experience. I’ve also recently worked with Sara, their recommended dog trainer, and she works miracles. My dog was out of control on a leash and after a week with Sara she was heeling on command… A miracle!

I was nervous about giving someone the keys and alarm code to my house at first but after meeting Tom & Bella I realized that this was a legit company with nice responsible people. We’ve been using Prairie Path for a few weeks now and it’s been such a great experience. I love the daily email about my dog. They have made our lives so much easier and taken away the stress of leaving our dog at home all day while we are at work.

Zach and the folks at Prairie Path were great! We got personalized updates on how are pups were doing with every visit. They even cleaned up after the dogs so we didn’t come home to a mess. Great to know such a good company is out there and we will definitely be using them again!

Prairie Path Pet Care is the best!!!! I wouldn’t trust my dogs to anyone else having had them take care of my two “boys” for over 6 months! Tom is accommodating, quick to respond, flexible, kind, loves animals and is able to offer many services that other pet care companies do not have. I love the emails that the walker sends to me every time she walks my dogs – they put a smile to my face when I’m at work. I also get an email when the walker first comes to the house so I know what time she gets...
