Prairie Path Pet Care has taken exceptional care of our world, our dog, Tyson. The Prairie Path team is incredibly knowledgeable about the care that goes into working with pets. I’ve had the opportunity to be home on a few occasions and our pup couldn’t be happier with his walker. I love how forward thinking Prairie Path is regarding the care of Tyson, as the walker has to scan a QR code at the beginning of the walk and the end of the walk. I receive an email each time they scan in and out so I know when they’ve...

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!

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 moved out to the suburbs from downtown Chicago last year with my dog Laszlo, without any recommendation for a local dog walker/sitter. After extensive research online, I narrowed down to Prairie Path Pet Care and on other company. After screening both, I went with PPPC and let me tell you…the single best find since I moved out here! The owner and manager of the company are incredibly accessible and very prompt on replying to any questions I may have. My dog walkers themselves (we have one regular walker, but if she’s out for a day another steps in) are...

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!

I cannot say enough great things about the great staff and service that I received for my golden doodle puppy. I always had peace of mind when I received an email notifying me that she had been out for her lunch time walk. I love the photos the walker sends with their email to show me how she is doing. Sarah did a great job training her – she worked with her 3 afternoons a week for basic training as well as leash training and getting her to a “place”. She is amazing and my puppy responded so well to...

Zach and the folks at Prairie Path were great! We got personalized updates on how are pups were doing with every visit. They even cleaned up after the dogs so we didn’t come home to a mess. Great to know such a good company is out there and we will definitely be using them again!

I am so grateful that one of my colleagues recommended Prairie Path Pet Care. My walker, Zach, is wonderful with my dog and I feel at ease knowing he’s there to take care of my Buddy! I had trouble in the past with walkers forgetting to show up and never have to worry with this company due to the technology that lets me know the service has started and when it’s completed. I appreciate the personal notes to let me know how my pet did each time. The service is excellent and the cost is more than reasonable for what...

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 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...
