Dog Walking, Pet Sitting, Grooming and More!

Our professional team of dog walkers are not only your pup’s new best friend, but they’re also a resource you can count on to help manage your busy lifestyle. We specialize in daily dog walking, dog sitting, pet sitting, grooming and training. We also offer an array of other services for both small and large pets. Let us be there for you and your furry family members when you can’t be!

Sit. Shake.

We want you to feel confident that your pet is in the best of care. That is why before services begin, Prairie Path provides a free meet and greet. We want you to get to know us and we want to get to know you and your pet family.

We bring professional pet care, reliability and technology, together.

Prairie Path bridges the gap between your home and work life, so you can relax knowing that your pet will receive the attention, exercise and love they deserve when you can’t be there for them. We use absolutely no independent contractors so our dog walking and pet sitting team is entirely comprised of dedicated employees. Every one of our dog walkers goes through a rigorous interview and training program to ensure we are always delivering the very best service available.

Here’s just a few more reasons to choose Prairie Path for your pet care needs:

No more hand written notes! Your pet's visit comes with GPS tracking and realtime e-mail notifications when we come and go. We'll also include a detailed summary after every visit.
Don't stress it! We're bonded and insured for your peace-of-mind. No need to just take our word for it, we will provide you documentation of both prior to service.
We employ pet lovers first. Your dedicated Dog Walker is trained in Dog/Human Behavior and CPR/First Aid certified. Each of our pros go through a background check, phone screen and in-person interview.
We give back. We love what we do and are proud to support local events in the communities we service and local pet care non-profits.

If the pet services industry is the haystack, then we're the needle!

We know how hard it is to find great care for your family pet. You have many options and at Prairie Path we feel that being educated on the many choices will help you pick the right pet care. Let us help you see why Prairie Path is the best choice for you and for your furry one.

Services for all of your pets needs.

From dog walks to critter care and even on your special wedding day, we can meet you and your pets needs. Heck, we’ve even cared for a monkey. Just saying.

**Effective March 21st 2022 we implemented a $1 per service gas surcharge to help lessen the burden of higher gas prices on our walkers/sitters. This surcharge will remain in effect until gas prices in our service areas fall back below $3.50 per gallon.
