I moved to Wheaton back in January of 2015 from Charleston, SC. I literally moved in on a Friday and started work on Monday. I did extensive research on the internet regarding pet walking service and I went with Prairie Pet Care. Not only did I base my decision on my web search but the building management also recommended them without even knowing that I decided to go with previously. That just made me happy that I made the right decision. I love the technology that they use as well. With my previous dog walker, she would leave me handwritten...

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...

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...

Prairie Path Pet Care is an awesome company that really puts your pets’ needs first. Everyone is so friendly and you can tell how much the employees truly enjoy caring for animals. Scheduling is super easy and they are very accommodating with last minute appointments or changes! I would definitely recommend them if you are looking for trustworthy and responsible pet care!

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!

Prairie path is great! You can tell they genuinely care about the well being of your pets and go above and beyond to care for them and put your mind at ease. They’re very flexible with scheduling, which is awesome. I’d highly recommend them to anyone!

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...

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...

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 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...
