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.

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!

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...

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...

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.

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’ve been using Prairie Path Pet Care since the beginning of June. They come every day and give my 2 dogs a mid day walk/potty break. Of course that also includes some treats and fresh water, tossing a tennis ball, etc. I have a Great Dane (Fiona) and a Pekingese (Vinny). Jessie, my dog walker, took the initiative to get Vinny a dog stroller because his little legs can’t keep up with his long legged sister. Great group of people that go above and beyond, always keeping the best interests of my dogs in mind. So happy to have found...

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...

Prairie Path has been phenomenal! My family loved them and we got GREAT reports about their friendliness and professionalism from the senior community where they walked my mother’s dog. They were as impressed as we were. We used Prairie Path to care for my mothers dog as she was suffering from Alzheimers. They enabled my mom to keep her dog when she could no longer care for her. Getting twice daily emails detailing the dog visits helped my sister and I keep up to date with how the dog was doing and what she needed but also gave us regular...

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...
