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 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 have been a customer for close to two years now for their dog walking services and their service has been nothing short of spectacular since day one. Their business acumen has been apparent from the start through a very attentive, knowledgeable and responsive approach to client management and the high emphasis placed on pet care and safety. I researched several pet care providers before deciding that PPPC was the ideal fit. What impressed me most was the way that they leverage technology to create transparency into their activities through the online platform. As a pet owner, one of the...

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...

Zack was amazing with our girls Reese & Riley! We would highly recommend his services to anyone that needs someone to care for their pets! He sent a detailed report from their walk which was greatly appreciated and we will definitely be calling on him again to keep and/or walk our girls!

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!

Prairie Path Pet Care is the best!!!! I wouldn’t trust my dogs to anyone else having had them take care of my two “boys” for over 6 months! Tom is accommodating, quick to respond, flexible, kind, loves animals and is able to offer many services that other pet care companies do not have. I love the emails that the walker sends to me every time she walks my dogs – they put a smile to my face when I’m at work. I also get an email when the walker first comes to the house so I know what time she gets...

Tom, Ashley and the rest of the crew at Prairie Path have been nothing but accommodating, flexible, friendly and trustworthy during the eight months I’ve used their service (daily afternoon walks plus periodic overnights at my house). The real differentiator for me has been their online system – I love getting emails to let me know that my dog’s walk has started and a full write-up of the outing at its conclusion. This has been one of those services I didn’t know I needed until it was offered; now I can’t imagine going back to paper notes about the walk...

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.
