“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 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.

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...

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.

My wife and I just moved to Wheaton a few months ago and when we went out of town for 5 days we were very concerned about leaving our cat Belle at the house. We found Prairie Path Pet Care and did a consultation with Tom Henaghan who walked us through the service and met with Belle. He seemed very thoughtful and professional so we decided to give them a try. We are so glad we did! The service is fantastic and the real-time online updates made us feel at ease. It is great that you can see when they...

We chose Prairie Path Pet Care because they use the GPS technology that shows us exactly where they walk our four-legged children. It is reassuring to see that the dogs are actually getting the walk that we pay for. Prairie Path has been on time every day. When we needed last-minute pet care, they were available. They noticed that one of our dogs was sick and alerted us right away. They send a friendly email to summarize each visit. The GPS technology allows us to see exactly where they walk and also reassures us that they are spending the full...

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 have been blessed with 3 large dogs and one my sweet pups is a bit “special needs” with one eye and a bit of trust issues. Once my dog sitters had moved away, I’ve been faced with a considerable amount of anxiety to find anyone to watch my pups at home while we travel. Once I talked to Zach (the manager) I finally felt hope that maybe I would be able to travel again. Meeting Zach and his perseverance to allow my dogs to gain trust was amazing!! He watched my pups for a long weekend and we came...

Prairie Path Pet Care is the best. There are a lot of choices in my area and I always use this firm. The team that takes care of my dog really loves what they do and love the animals they walk or take care of. I like how easy it is to schedule a walk and it is really great that I get an email when they arrive and when they leave I get another email with notes about the activities and a map of where they went. They have leveraged technology in a way that enhances their service rather...

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...
