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...

Prairie Path Pet Care walks my three dogs daily, and I couldn’t be happier with the service, how much they care about my boys and how conscientious they are. One of my dogs is 14, and a bit frail. They always inform me of how he’s doing, let me know immediately when something isn’t right and take extra special care of him. I feel very comfortable knowing that they are in good hands. I also love the daily emails – I can see how things are going in real time – don’t have to wait til I get home from...

Prairie Path Pet Care is the best!!!! I wouldn’t trust my dogs to anyone else having had them take care of my two “boys” for over 6 months! Tom is accommodating, quick to respond, flexible, kind, loves animals and is able to offer many services that other pet care companies do not have. I love the emails that the walker sends to me every time she walks my dogs – they put a smile to my face when I’m at work. I also get an email when the walker first comes to the house so I know what time she gets...

I first met Zach and Prairie Path a few months back when I called with a VERY last minute request. Being new to Nashville, I googled in-home pet care for my 2 cats. Within an hour, Zach called me back and was over making an introduction later that evening – my trip was the next day! He was thorough and took the time to get to know my boys. Since then, Zach and his team have been AMAZING. They are there when I need them and give me the peace of mind I need when I am traveling (which is...

The service we received from Prairie Path Pet Care exceeded our expectations. Our English Bull Dog, Rudy loved Zach! We went out of town for the weekend and Zach came out twice a day to feed Rudy and give him plenty of exercise. Zach put in a tracker that sent me e-mails of when he arrived, the duration, and personalized messages of how Rudy was faring. This provided us with trust and peace of mind that Rudy was doing well and in good hands. I would highly recommend Prairie Path Pet Care! Awesome experience!

“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 moved out to the suburbs from downtown Chicago last year with my dog Laszlo, without any recommendation for a local dog walker/sitter. After extensive research online, I narrowed down to Prairie Path Pet Care and on other company. After screening both, I went with PPPC and let me tell you…the single best find since I moved out here! The owner and manager of the company are incredibly accessible and very prompt on replying to any questions I may have. My dog walkers themselves (we have one regular walker, but if she’s out for a day another steps in) are...

These guys are amazing! I work 60+ hours a week with my schedule changing from week to week and they are flexible in changing days and times for walking my puppy. Emails are sent out after every walk giving you an update on how your puppy did on their walk and how it went. This is so awesome! When I work all day it always makes me smile when I get these emails. It’s like I’m there with her when I can’t be! And the walkers are amazing! My puppy loves them so much! I tell everyone how awesome they...

I LOVE Prairie Path!! Zach is awesome! Besides getting some exercise and running off that puppy energyI have noticed some improvements on her being on the leash, going up the stairs (she refused with me) and being more comfortable in her crate! I will suggest this place to everyone that ever asks about dog walking and I will continue to use them!

I used this pet care service for the first time last week, as I went out of town and had nobody to take care of my beloved kitty while I was away. I have never used a service before, and I needed additional things done around my house like feeding my fish, watering my plants, and bringing in my mail–all the stuff a friend would have done to take care of my house. Shawn totally hooked me up! Not only did I come back to all three fish and my plants still living, but my cat had been well cared...
