Prairie Path Pet Care has been great! I got my pup back in June and have been using their service since about August so just over 3 months now. At first we hired a person from our neighborhood which seemed like a good idea but you do have to factor in the fact that a neighborhood person is just one person. Prairie Path has back up walkers if something comes up and that is a huge advantage that I didn’t even think about. At first I thought the daily e-mails were a little much but it is very comforting knowing...

From my initial contact with Prairie Path Pet Care, I was impressed. They promptly return calls, walked me through their process, are flexible, concerning of my needs and respectful of my property. Best of all, they love my dog Jenny. They use a computer program that lets me know when they arrive, and provide notes on all that occurred while on their visit (where they walked, any eating/eliminating, play time, etc.) They hire wonderful caregivers who truly love their jobs and are consummate professionals linked to their passion for pets. I have contacted other pet sitters, and none provided the...

Thank you Tom and Prairie Path Pet Care! Just got back from a long weekend trip and I am so happy with the service that Prairie Path provided for my two cats. They made sure that they understood my cats personalities and any quirks they have. I received a message when the visit started and ended and what I liked best of all was the daily e-mail update about the visit that really put my mind at ease that everything was going well and they were in good hands. You can tell they really care about your pets and they...

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...

These guys seriously, seriously rock. I recently moved to Crystal Lake with my Aussie mix, Bailey, who I had also recently adopted. Bailey is high-energy and has a bit of anxiety. I was in need of someone to check on her/take her out while I’m at work during the day, but I was a little nervous about trusting a dog-walking service. However, Eric and Noel put me at ease the moment we met them. We have been getting daily, weekday walks from PPPC for a few months now. I am honestly blown away every day by how attentive, capable, and...

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...

We had Prairie Path Pet Care pet sit our two dogs (60 lbs and 35 lbs) for 4 1/2 days. Choosing to leave them at home so they would be happier was our main reason for not boarding. Our dogs are like family to us. Our male does not like to let strangers into the house but after a visit with the sitters prior to our leaving he fell in love with them and even snuggled on the couch. Both dogs did great and our very specific directions for care were followed reliably. Both dogs were way more relaxed when...

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 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...
