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...

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...

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...

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...

Prairie Path Pet Care has outstanding customer service, professionalism, and technological innovation. I did extensive research into companies before choosing PPPC and no other companies matched their concern for my dog’s well being. Prior to the walking services beginning, I completed a packet for them to know how to best service my animal and it was apparent on our very first meeting that they had genuinely reviewed the information I provided and cared to exceed all of my expectations. Each visit they provide me with a detailed, personal description of the time they spent with my animal, showing that they...

I used this pet care service for the first time last week, as I went out of town and had nobody to take care of my beloved kitty while I was away. I have never used a service before, and I needed additional things done around my house like feeding my fish, watering my plants, and bringing in my mail–all the stuff a friend would have done to take care of my house. Shawn totally hooked me up! Not only did I come back to all three fish and my plants still living, but my cat had been well cared...

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 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...

I was nervous about giving someone the keys and alarm code to my house at first but after meeting Tom & Bella I realized that this was a legit company with nice responsible people. We’ve been using Prairie Path for a few weeks now and it’s been such a great experience. I love the daily email about my dog. They have made our lives so much easier and taken away the stress of leaving our dog at home all day while we are at work.

These guys are amazing! I work 60+ hours a week with my schedule changing from week to week and they are flexible in changing days and times for walking my puppy. Emails are sent out after every walk giving you an update on how your puppy did on their walk and how it went. This is so awesome! When I work all day it always makes me smile when I get these emails. It’s like I’m there with her when I can’t be! And the walkers are amazing! My puppy loves them so much! I tell everyone how awesome they...
