My wife and I just moved to Wheaton a few months ago and when we went out of town for 5 days we were very concerned about leaving our cat Belle at the house. We found Prairie Path Pet Care and did a consultation with Tom Henaghan who walked us through the service and met with Belle. He seemed very thoughtful and professional so we decided to give them a try. We are so glad we did! The service is fantastic and the real-time online updates made us feel at ease. It is great that you can see when they...

What a positive experience working with Prairie Path Pet Care has been. From the first time our high-energy Boston Terrier met Tom, I knew that we had chosen the correct dog walking service. Our main dog walker has been Ashley (she is excellent). I love my job, but I would say that the highlight of my day is receiving her witty, entertaining summary of the daily visit. Truly a 5-star company for their high level of communication, customer service, and attention to detail.

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!!

My dogs are my family, though I admit, they aren’t the easiest kids for a single mom. When I interviewed Tom at Prairie Path I was blown away at how easily my girls got along with him. Now, bear in mind I have bigger dogs. I have a collie/hound mix and an Aussie Cattle dog who both pull like mushers. They can be a little overprotective, a little aggressive and I’ll spare you the story of how one of them headbutted Tom in her excitement and split his lip. However, the dogs LOVE Tom. Not only does he come in...

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!

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...

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

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...

Best dog training and walking! Our German Shepherd loves his walker and has been able to showcase his full potential for training both on and off leash thanks to his wonderful trainer, Sara! The whole Prairie Path team from their management to their dog walkers are fantastic! They care so much about the animals and their clients. Couldn’t be happier.
