About Troy
==> All Walks are FREE WHEN HOSTING - !!! Not just any walk either...they get a joy ride in the car to Iron cove bay [Drummoyne / Fivedock / Haberfield area]...soak in some sun, water and a great breeze while bumping into friends they haven't met yet as well as scenic routes in Rookwood Cemetery...then its back home to a huge fully fenced yard and cozy lounge and bedroom if required

==> Regarding Walking services - Only Local to Lidcombe Area otherwise there is a fuel surcharge minimum $10

==> Baths Are Free When Hosting for a minimum of 1 week

What can I say...from as far back as I can remember...all animals just gel with me !!!

My name is Troy
I have been around animals most of my life. My father used to go camping and take me along when I was just a child and I would always bring a new critter or 2 home after each trip. Sometimes without his knowledge, the funny thing is he did too. My mother used to flip out with both of us

I have cared for/owned a number of animals ranging from mice to pythons, not in the same tank of course lol…cats and dogs were standard…

Jumping fences to save mistreated animals was common place as a child learned that from my mother.

I spent my work experience at Taronga Zoo 1984. Not many people can say they have had the pleasure of playing with a baby tiger, 3 baby orangutans [the zoo's version of babies and mine...big difference, yes they weren't babies], seals and a myriad of other critters.

There really is no need to look any further.
I have ample yard space.
Complete Security including cameras
I will treat your Special family member[s] as if he or she were my very own

It would be my pleasure to ensure your "Special member" is well taken care of so you can enjoy your break with full confidence=D

I welcome long stays for your furry, scaly, slimy and feathered "friend" [s]
Bonus for your special get them back fitter than when you dropped them off. I walk around Canada bay minimum 2 days each week...nothing beats fresh air salt water...sand and other walkers with their special friends...I drive to this location so there is even a car trip which everyone knows they go ape for unless its to the vet lol...When that is not an option I take them to the Rookwood Cemetery...amazing scenery and many different routes through bush trails gravel roads as well as main paths and roads. Routes range from 5kms to 10kms+

Please feel free to contact me available 24 / 7

Thanks so much for looking after Sven, it was amazing being able to have peace of mind while we were away! And the updates and photos of sven having a blast made it even better! You are definitely our first choice moving forwards, thanks again troy

Troy clearly loves dogs, has a firm but gentle way with them, and I felt confident leaving my bordoodle Pluto with him for a week. Troy walked Pluto every day and sent me updates and videos to reassure me (it was the first time Pluto and I had been apart that long). The premises may not be 'upmarket' but the outdoor area is secure and there is plenty of room for dogs to have a good time. :)
