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...

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.

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!

Tom and Bella both switch off walking and playing with our pup five days a week while we are stuck in the office. No matter what the weather is like, these folks show up and make sure your dog is doing alright and gets some good exercise outdoors. They make things super convenient and are absolutely trustworthy and extremely flexible when it comes to scheduling.

Prairie Path Pet Care has outstanding customer service, professionalism, and technological innovation. I did extensive research into companies before choosing PPPC and no other companies matched their concern for my dog’s well being. Prior to the walking services beginning, I completed a packet for them to know how to best service my animal and it was apparent on our very first meeting that they had genuinely reviewed the information I provided and cared to exceed all of my expectations. Each visit they provide me with a detailed, personal description of the time they spent with my animal, showing that they...

I had recently moved to Crystal Lake, IL and found out about PPPC via an internet search. Man, was I lucky to have chosen them over any other local pet-care business! It’s kind of hard NOT to consider Prairie Path Pet Care part of your own family. The service, but more importantly, the love and care that PPPC provides for their clients’ pets is simply invaluable. Regardless, often times I find myself feeling bad they don’t charge MORE than what I already pay them, and I believe that alone says a lot! We receive daily, weekday walks from Eric and...

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 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...

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...
