About Me and 24/7 Pet Care

Full-Time Pet Sitter and Dog Walker

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Hoag, I'm 28 years old and I have lived with and cared for dogs, cats, and a rainbow of other animals since I was a child. The last 15 years I've devoted a good deal of time to learning dog training methods, specifically positive and balanced training. In December 2017 I graduated from University of Illinois with my BA in psychology. I focused on experimental and behavioral courses, giving me a formal education in the foundations of animal behavior to add to years of hands-on learning. 

My husband and I share our home with an Australian Shepherd (Atlas), two cats (Loki and Thor), several angora rabbits (Kumo, Peach, and Felix), a canary (Nikko), and a corn snake (Tiny). I also maintain a 75 gallon freshwater aquarium stocked with rainbow fish, and a 5 gallon freshwater shrimp aquarium. While I don't own any currently, I have past experience caring for lizards, horses, ferrets and small animals such as mice and gerbils.

I am more than happy to look after almost any animal companion - if I don't have prior experience caring for the type of animal you have I will gladly spend the time necessary to learn how to!

While 24/7 Pet Care is primarily a one person business, as of November 2018 I have brought on my husband, Derwood, to act as an alternate sitter in case of emergency or if I have multiple requests with one or two overlapping times. My husband is covered by my insurance and bonding, and has a clear background check on file which I bring with me to meet & greets. My husband always shadows at least one visit with me for any client he provides care for, and as always, I do my very best not to overbook clients so your pets can receive the individual attention and care they deserve. 

I started out pet sitting in Springfield November 2017 through Rover.com, and established 24/7 Pet Care in May 2018.  While I no longer provide services through Rover's platform, you can still find my old profile there (https://www.rover.com/sit/ehoag90)!
