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...

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!

What a positive experience working with Prairie Path Pet Care has been. From the first time our high-energy Boston Terrier met Tom, I knew that we had chosen the correct dog walking service. Our main dog walker has been Ashley (she is excellent). I love my job, but I would say that the highlight of my day is receiving her witty, entertaining summary of the daily visit. Truly a 5-star company for their high level of communication, customer service, and attention to detail.

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...

I cannot say enough great things about the great staff and service that I received for my golden doodle puppy. I always had peace of mind when I received an email notifying me that she had been out for her lunch time walk. I love the photos the walker sends with their email to show me how she is doing. Sarah did a great job training her – she worked with her 3 afternoons a week for basic training as well as leash training and getting her to a “place”. She is amazing and my puppy responded so well to...

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...

“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...

So glad we found this dog-walking service! Our walker comes 3 days a week while the family is at work and school which has been crucial in house – training our puppy. Bailey is crazy about her and gets much-needed mid-day exercise. The electronic check-in and GPS technology are really cool features which I have not seen elsewhere – all for a lower cost than the other quotes I received. I highly recommend this company!

We have been using Prairie Path Pet Care for about 6 months now. They always provide prompt, attentive care for our Westie. Our pet sitters are very knowledgeable about taking care of our dog and provide excellent care. They are always very flexible with our scheduling needs which can change week to week with my wife’s and my work schedule. Many times we have to change visits at the last minute and Prairie Path is always very accommodating. It really helps us out a lot to know they are there to provide pet walking and feeding services as we need...

Zack was amazing with our girls Reese & Riley! We would highly recommend his services to anyone that needs someone to care for their pets! He sent a detailed report from their walk which was greatly appreciated and we will definitely be calling on him again to keep and/or walk our girls!
