About 24/7 Pet Care
Hello, my name is Elizabeth Hoag! 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 3 dogs, 4 cats, and a canary. I also maintain several freshwater aquariums.
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 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 view screenshots of some of my Rover reviews on my Facebook business page.
