Misty was so happy that she didn't want to come home to me. Rick sent photos, which put my mind at ease, He was also very flexible when I called him and told him I might have to extend my trip because I was in the hospital. Luckily, I was able to return on time. However, it was a blessing to know that Misty would be cared for even if I couldn't make it back ...

Out of all the sitters I've had through rover, Rick is the best, and that's saying something. He genuinely cared for my dog and treated him like one of his own. I can tell Rick is a true animal person and will definitely be asking him to sit for me again. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Rick Morgan is a loving and caring sitter of all living things. He has taken care of my pets on short notice and has a healthy happy shitzu, cat, and fish, that he has had for years.

I'm amazing and humble.

I'm a dog whisperer. I've had a shi tzu for five years and love her very much. Over the years, I've had a cocker spaniel, black lab, border collie and pit bull. I periodically help friends and family with their pets and have enjoyed doing so.

As the oldest brother of seven siblings and having a history of pet ownership, I believe that I have the patience and nurturing nature that is important in a ...

What Rick would like to know about your dog

Is the animal friendly around people or other pets? Up to date on vaccines? Any special needs or medications? Anything else that the puppy parent feels relevant to inform me of. I've grown to love most dogs, especially labs, retrievers, shi tzus and goofy mixes.

When Rick watches your pet

I like taking the pooches to Zilker Park, Red Bud, Riverside dog park, Auditorium Shores, and occasionally state parks like Pedernales Falls and Enchanted Rock. If the weather is bad or the dog prefers the indoors, we'll probably binge watch Game of Thrones or Archer on the couch, with a potty break in between episodes.
