Ive used Zach with prairie path for almost six months now. He is consistent, reliable and trustworthy. Even on snow days when the whole city is shut down Zach is still willing to work. He walks my pup 3 times a week and has for 6 months and has never cancelled. Highest recommendations!!

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...

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...

Prairie Path Pet Care is AWESOME! They have a fantastic manager named Tom who is very responsive, always available for assistance, and ensures things are done right. He emulates the same characteristics of their staff: they REALLY care about your pet, and understand what your pet means to you. The automated time stamp service and daily email blogs are savvy and fantastic. I know when the walkers arrive and leave remotely, and read and see picture as to how my pet is doing that day. I really feel reassured my pet is safe and well taken care of. Prairie Path...

I first met Zach and Prairie Path a few months back when I called with a VERY last minute request. Being new to Nashville, I googled in-home pet care for my 2 cats. Within an hour, Zach called me back and was over making an introduction later that evening – my trip was the next day! He was thorough and took the time to get to know my boys. Since then, Zach and his team have been AMAZING. They are there when I need them and give me the peace of mind I need when I am traveling (which is...

I have two Chihuahua’s which are both rescue dogs. One of them is only 4lbs and the other one is also tiny. Both are very afraid of people and won’t go by anyone but Eric from Prairie Path. Eric comes in to let them out and things have totally turned around. He is wonderful with them and they are so happy and comfortable with him, something I never thought possible. I can’t say enough about this service. They go way above expectations to make my animals content. I could never thank them enough for taking that kind of time. Anyone...

We were first time dog owners so we were skeptical about having someone coming in and dealing with our new 2 month old puppy and of course having keys to our place…BUT after meeting Tom we knew we had made the right decision. You could see he genuinely loved animals by how he was with our Jada…Whenever we had a question (and i had many) he was ALWAYS quick to respond and put us at ease… I was working from home a few days here and there and I got a chance to meet Jessie…she is the one who walks...

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 absolutely recommend Prairie Path Pet Care. They have been fabulous with my dog. Ive used their dog walking service for almost a year and it has been reliable and happy experience. I’ve also recently worked with Sara, their recommended dog trainer, and she works miracles. My dog was out of control on a leash and after a week with Sara she was heeling on command… A miracle!

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...
