About Troy
==> All Walks are FREE WHEN HOSTING for more than 1 week - !!! Not just any walk either...includes anything from taking a joy ride in the car to Iron cove bay [Drummoyne / Fivedock / Haberfield area]...soak in some sun, play in the sand cool off in the water and breathe in fresh sea breeze while bumping into friends they haven't met yet as well as scenic routes in Rookwood Cemetery & Newington Reserves (Olympic Park)...then its back home to a huge fully fenced yard with plenty of shelter if he or she is an outside pooch and a cozy lounge room for those who prefer indoors (must be toilet trained to enjoy inside comforts)

==> Regarding Walking services - Only Local to Rookwood Cemetery, otherwise there is a minimum fuel charge of $15 for areas surrounding the Bay run at Drummoyne Rodd Point, Fivedock, Lilypilly, Olympic Park, Newington
==> Baths Are Free When Hosting for a minimum of 1 week

What can I say...from as far back as I can remember...animals of all kind & I have had a great connection !!!

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...needless to say we both drew the ol' girl mad at times 🤣 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 I 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 not 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 / they were my very own

It would be my pleasure to ensure your "Special member" of your family 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 4 legged barking special get them back fitter than when you dropped them off. I love walking and jogging...I average 40kms a week...nothing beats fresh air salt water picturesque views and being among nature...I drive to these spots so there is even a car trip which everyone knows they go ape for unless its to the vet 🤣...When that is not an option I take them to 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+ to and fro

Please feel free to contact me available 24 / 7

Luna, Pola, Dollar, Charlie and Max, Misha, Shoovey, Troy [yes a Great Dane with the name Troy…is like owning a snake and calling Fluffy] Roxy n Carney, Bane, Arnie, Arrow, Charlie, Flashman, Bo, Bane, Biggie, Bear, Koda, Lucky, Piccadillys, Olympia, Exe and Ami, Smokey, Otis, Dakota, Bear and Lucy, Lily, Marvin, Misha, Ziggy, Cookie, Loofie Matilda, Dexter, Zeus, Sandy and Polly and looking forward to adding your special member of the family here too

** I haven't included cats - I like cats too...just don't want to lose them or anything happen to them...not sure how that works in a house...?

** re puppys - luv em' too but may slip through the gate columns.

Unfortunately I can' t have "too curious " or Crazy type dogs here as I am trying to grow veges and herbs in raised garden beds and they seem to be a magnet for diggos of that nature 🤔

Bella has a great time on her walks with Troy. He takes her to different places and knowing that she is a young lab, is aware of her reactions and interactions. You know your pawkid loves the walks as she gets excited and does zoomies when she sees Troy.
