We are presently using Tilman’s services for training our dog Diamond We are only on lesson two and have already seen many positive changes. If I could give ten stars, I would. He is an awesome trainer and truly knows his stuff. Thank you again!

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 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...

I moved to Wheaton back in January of 2015 from Charleston, SC. I literally moved in on a Friday and started work on Monday. I did extensive research on the internet regarding pet walking service and I went with Prairie Pet Care. Not only did I base my decision on my web search but the building management also recommended them without even knowing that I decided to go with previously. That just made me happy that I made the right decision. I love the technology that they use as well. With my previous dog walker, she would leave me handwritten...

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...

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...

Prairie Path Pet Care is AWESOME! They have a fantastic manager named Tom who is very responsive, always available for assistance, and ensures things are done right. He emulates the same characteristics of their staff: they REALLY care about your pet, and understand what your pet means to you. The automated time stamp service and daily email blogs are savvy and fantastic. I know when the walkers arrive and leave remotely, and read and see picture as to how my pet is doing that day. I really feel reassured my pet is safe and well taken care of. Prairie Path...

Prairie Path Pet Care has outstanding customer service, professionalism, and technological innovation. I did extensive research into companies before choosing PPPC and no other companies matched their concern for my dog’s well being. Prior to the walking services beginning, I completed a packet for them to know how to best service my animal and it was apparent on our very first meeting that they had genuinely reviewed the information I provided and cared to exceed all of my expectations. Each visit they provide me with a detailed, personal description of the time they spent with my animal, showing that they...

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...

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...
