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...

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...

My dogs are my family, though I admit, they aren’t the easiest kids for a single mom. When I interviewed Tom at Prairie Path I was blown away at how easily my girls got along with him. Now, bear in mind I have bigger dogs. I have a collie/hound mix and an Aussie Cattle dog who both pull like mushers. They can be a little overprotective, a little aggressive and I’ll spare you the story of how one of them headbutted Tom in her excitement and split his lip. However, the dogs LOVE Tom. Not only does he come in...

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...

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!

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...

Zach has the highest integrity and character of anyone I know. I’m thrilled to have him as a business partner and excited to see how he changes the landscape of pet care in Nashville for the better. There’s a new dog walker in town and you can bet he’s going to raise the standard!

I had the most amazing and wonderful experience with Prairie Path, Tom went above and beyond what you could ever expect from any other pet sitting service. I do not leave my pets very often and do so with some anxiety, but since using this service I will never again leave my pets with any anxiety but rather with peace and contentment knowing they are in great hands. In the middle of the night I woke up in a high rise hotel to hearing a cat meowing, knowing this hotel is not pet friendly I was worried that something may...

Great service and price. Love that you get an email notification/update when your dog is out for their walk. Would definitely recommend!

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...
