“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...

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...

Ive used Zach with prairie path for almost six months now. He is consistent, reliable and trustworthy. Even on snow days when the whole city is shut down Zach is still willing to work. He walks my pup 3 times a week and has for 6 months and has never cancelled. Highest recommendations!!

I have been a customer for close to two years now for their dog walking services and their service has been nothing short of spectacular since day one. Their business acumen has been apparent from the start through a very attentive, knowledgeable and responsive approach to client management and the high emphasis placed on pet care and safety. I researched several pet care providers before deciding that PPPC was the ideal fit. What impressed me most was the way that they leverage technology to create transparency into their activities through the online platform. As a pet owner, one of the...

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!

When searching for a dog walker I had no idea where to start! I did an online search and after reading a lot of great reviews for Prairie Path, I gave them a call. Tom was able to come over that evening and set up a new account for Delilah to have a walker out the very next day. I was thoroughly impressed with their ability to accommodate my procrastination and last minute request! Cheryl has been walking my dog now for three weeks and I can tell you that not only is she prompt, she also sends the best...

They are extremely flexible and trustworthy. When my dog had an accident while in the care of my dog walker (absolutely not his fault), he took all necessary actions to provide emergency care and help for my dog.

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...

Best dog training and walking! Our German Shepherd loves his walker and has been able to showcase his full potential for training both on and off leash thanks to his wonderful trainer, Sara! The whole Prairie Path team from their management to their dog walkers are fantastic! They care so much about the animals and their clients. Couldn’t be happier.

I live in Wheaton Center and found Prairie Path Pet Care through the Internet and Yelp. This service is absolutely amazing. Not only were they responsive and open to any situation we had for them, they were able to adjust our services on short notice while keeping us updated as the changes were implemented. The software they use is amazing and allows you the comfort of seeing your pet being walked, for how long, and where. Not only that, but their dog walkers (Jessie is awesome) write great reviews and notes to let you know how the walk went. I...
