Great service and price. Love that you get an email notification/update when your dog is out for their walk. Would definitely recommend!

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...

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...

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...

So glad we found this dog-walking service! Our walker comes 3 days a week while the family is at work and school which has been crucial in house – training our puppy. Bailey is crazy about her and gets much-needed mid-day exercise. The electronic check-in and GPS technology are really cool features which I have not seen elsewhere – all for a lower cost than the other quotes I received. I highly recommend this company!

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...

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 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 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...

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!
