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...

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 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...

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!

We have been using Prairie Path Pet Care for about 6 months now. They always provide prompt, attentive care for our Westie. Our pet sitters are very knowledgeable about taking care of our dog and provide excellent care. They are always very flexible with our scheduling needs which can change week to week with my wife’s and my work schedule. Many times we have to change visits at the last minute and Prairie Path is always very accommodating. It really helps us out a lot to know they are there to provide pet walking and feeding services as we need...

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...

Zach has the highest integrity and character of anyone I know. I’m thrilled to have him as a business partner and excited to see how he changes the landscape of pet care in Nashville for the better. There’s a new dog walker in town and you can bet he’s going to raise the standard!

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...

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...

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...
