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...

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...

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!

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!

I’ve been using Prairie Path Pet Care since the beginning of June. They come every day and give my 2 dogs a mid day walk/potty break. Of course that also includes some treats and fresh water, tossing a tennis ball, etc. I have a Great Dane (Fiona) and a Pekingese (Vinny). Jessie, my dog walker, took the initiative to get Vinny a dog stroller because his little legs can’t keep up with his long legged sister. Great group of people that go above and beyond, always keeping the best interests of my dogs in mind. So happy to have found...

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...

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.

Our 8 year old chocolate Lab, Hershey and 11 year old white mini- schnauzer , Bailey LOVE Julie , our current dog walker and sitter when we travel ! I met Tom in the beginning of the year when my husband and I moved from Glen Ellyn to downtown Naperville as were looking for a reliable and trustworthy pet care service. There were several other pet care businesses in the area, but it was Prairie Path that was and continues to be the ace in the hole. We have been with Tom and the Prairie Path family since April...

I was nervous about giving someone the keys and alarm code to my house at first but after meeting Tom & Bella I realized that this was a legit company with nice responsible people. We’ve been using Prairie Path for a few weeks now and it’s been such a great experience. I love the daily email about my dog. They have made our lives so much easier and taken away the stress of leaving our dog at home all day while we are at work.
