About Troy

Hi,

I'm a guy who is passionate about doggies of all shapes and sizes. To me, they are such wonderful companions that I couldn't imagine life without them.

I am also regularly care for cats and can also help with other animals as well. I find though that these pets are best cared for in the environment that they're familiar with so my preference is to look after them there.

I have opted at this point not to have a full time pet of my own as I tend to getaway a few times per year on little breaks.

My services include hosting doggies at my place for a few days to a few weeks, or dog walking from your place. I can also tend to your dog, cat, rabbit or other pet at your place including walking, feeding etc.

If caring for your pet at yours, I can both do overnight stays or once or twice daily visits etc as required.

I live in a 2 bedroom unit in Brunswick West that is on a quiet street. I have an L shaped courtyard outside that has decking and a grassed area. I also have a large doggie door that enables doggies to move freely from the house to the outside area and vice versa.

I have 5 years of experience in dog minding at my home and have had more than 100 dogs in that time and quite a number of cats (tended to in their familiar surroundings), many becoming regulars after we've formed a bond together.

I mostly look after small to medium dogs as I don't have a huge place. However, I find that some larger dogs are fine as well if they don't need a large outdoor space. In any event, I typically walk all the dogs that are with me both morning and night (unless it's not suitable for a given dog) so they get lots of outside exposure.

They are treated as members of my family and are welcome to sleep in the beds their owners provide or on the couch or in some cases my bed, if that's what they're accustomed to.

While I work full time, I'm an early riser and quite a late sleeper so there's plenty of time for interaction.

Troy was the best sitter for our dog. He very good with the communication, especially while we were away - lots of pictures and updates. Would definitely recommend him and use his again!
