a bit about our
work and who we are
how we got here
Austin and Morgan circa 2015 with their dogs Quin, Casey, and Crosby.
Our Live Full, Live Happy mission started in 2013 when co-founders Morgan & Austin Weber became professional pet sitters and started Lucky Pup Adventures.
Morgan was training to be an architect and Austin was perfecting his skills in the corporate and local pet retail world.
Over the years their work as pet care experts have expanded and now include The Aquarium Keepers aquarium care and Memory Flame remembrance candles. In addition to being pet care service providers, Morgan & Austin love to be trusted resources and knowledgeable experts for our clients and community. As part of our Live Full, Live Happy mission, they share their expertise with audiences of all kinds, both online and in person. They believe that with a little knowledge, some expert tips, and a strong community, everyone can achieve some pretty awesome things with a bit of support.
As proud members of professional organizations like Fear Free Pets, Pet Professional Guild, and Pet Sitters International, we take our responsibility as professionals seriously and are committed to serving well.

meet Morgan, our CEO
Hey, there! I’m Morgan. I’m the kind of person who loves to bring energy, ideas, and clarity to a room. I went to architecture school and worked in top design firms as a project designer and manager. After being immersed in design for nearly a decade I decided to trade in my hard hat for a pair of hiking shoes and my favorite leash (because what dog walker doesn’t have a favorite leash??). I left my corporate job to lead Lucky Pup Adventures fulltime in 2018, and I’ve learned a lot of things along the way.
My strengths as a designer and as an educator are all about taking ideas or concepts and weaving them together in a way that makes the Big Picture relatable, inspirational, and educational. I lean on the lessons I’ve learned as the Chief Everything Officer of a rapidly growing company since 2013 to help other pet pros avoid the challenges I’ve found along the way. I believe in being candid and authentic about the struggles we’ve encountered and love to share the best advice dogs have taught me about living life.
work with Morgan
Morgan has experience in creating live and live-to-tape TV segments, podcasts, workshops, and presentations. She helps audiences see the Big Picture and understand how it applies to them. She loves presenting and getting to help others
Morgan also provides pet sitters with business audits to help them avoid burnout and provide better service to their clients while also enjoying their pet care business again.
meet Austin, our CFG
I’m Austin. I love to see problems or challenges that people are having and figure out a solution. I went to college to be an industrial engineer and I enjoy making systems work smoothly. I spent time in a few industries before finding my passion in big-box and local pet retail. I started in sales and quickly moved up as a manager in animal and aquatics departments. I started Aquarium Keepers, my aquarium maintenance business, in 2018 and started working fulltime as the Chief Fish Guy (CFG) in our businesses in 2022.
I am a fixer and I like to help people solve problems. Sometimes it’s helping with a new fish tank or dietary issues with a dog or cat. There is always a new problem to solve and when you find the right solution it improves the quality of life to the pets and their families. I love sharing my passions with others, and there isn’t much cooler than seeing people get excited about something with you. Besides our 2 dogs, I also have a 400 gallon reef aquarium and 25 gallon planted aquarium. Yep – I really like fish. I also have a wealth of knowledge about reptiles and snakes of all kinds, but my wife won’t let me bring any snakes home.
work with Austin
Austin has experience bringing his passions to groups large and small. He connects with audiences using his dry humor, Dog Dad jokes, and excels at breaking complex systems down into easy-to-understand pieces. He’ll even wear one of his colorful “fish shirts” if you ask nicely (or even if you don’t, he’ll probably still wear one. He loves talking about all things fish, aquarium systems, caring for fish and reptiles, and troubleshooting.
Austin consults with pet sitters on how to help them understand aquariums, and loves to help even the most novice aquarists better understand and care for their new favorite hobby.
