About Autumn

9 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
No dog is too energetic, too high-maintenance, or "too much work" for me -- I love caring for dogs of all walks of life. I've been working with animals professionally for over nine years, and have loved every minute of it. I'm especially well trained in caring for dogs with special needs, elderly animals, and animals with anxiety issues. Every animal is special and deserves great care!

My roommate Emily and I are located on the third floor of a very pet friendly building, only a few blocks away from Puptown Dog Park and Montrose Dog Beach. My apartment has hardwood floors with lots of open space for play. The dogs I watch will have the run of the house -- they are welcome on the furniture and even in bed (unless otherwise specified). Rest assured that every one of my canine guests is treated like family. :)

We are very proud of our pet photos! Check us out @buenabark on Instagram!

Loved Autumn, and loved her roommate who provides back-up care. Between the two of them, our Maisy was a pampered pup! Autumn is a great communicator, and very accommodating. We had to extend our dogs stay, and she worked with us! She also accommodated our dog who needs constant input! We took home a happy puppy!

Roxy had a great time with all her playmates
Autumn is awesome and our dog Frankie loved her! She was super flexible in scheduling our meet and greet and was available to sit fairly last minute. She sent us photo updates of Frankie and even asked if she could clean out his ears when she noticed him shaking his head and scratching. It was so nice knowing that Frankie was in such great hands while we were away and we will definitely ask Autumn to sit again!!

Autumn was amazing! We needed a last minute sitter to watch our shih-tzu Riley at our home, and Autumn came to meet us that same day. We received updates throughout the weekend and she took great care of Riley and the house. We will definitely use her again!

Autumn took great care of my Penelope. She sent plenty of updates and pictures the entire time. My Penelope slept for an entire day afterwards :) Thank you!
Autumn was very pleasant and a great communicator. I know Lucy had a great time and would love to hang out with Autumn's dogs again!
Great experience! Autumn was great with my dog Remmie. She sent updates and was easy to set up the reservation with. We will definitely be using her services again in the future.
Autumn was fantastic! We booked on relatively short notice, and she was super accommodating on drop off/pick up time. Our little guy had a blast. We got photo and video updates throughout the weekend. We picked up one tired, but clearly happy puppy. Would absolutely go back to her again.

Autumn was completely wonderful! She took my dog on long walks, even to the dog park! When I came home, he seemed very content and my house was spotless. 10/10 would use again!
Autumn was fantastic! She was very welcoming to my dog, took him out to the dog park (something I rarely get to do myself,) and when my trip was unexpectedly extended, she was very accommodating to the change. Will definitely be reaching out to her again!

This was the first time I had to leave Chuck with a stranger and Autumn was great. She patiently answered all my questions and sent me pics to show how he was doing. Chuck looked great when I picked him up and happy. I will definitely be using Autumn again when the need arises.

Autumn was great! Communicative, sent cute pics, left my place very clean, everything was awesome!
Lucy had a great time playing with Autumn's pups! Thanks for the photo message check ins and for being flexible!
Autumn is great - she got back to me right away and was accommodating on pick up and drop off times. She sent pictures while I was away so I knew Jackson was doing well. Jackson had a great time playing with her dogs and came home happy!
Autumn was wonderful! She was quick to respond and treated Buttercup as if she were her own. I would very highly recommend her!
Autumn is great. She really cares about the dogs mental state as well as health. Always goes above and beyond to make sure the dog gets lots of walks and attention. She is very flexible and accommodating. Everytime my dog comes home she is very happy.

Autumn was great. Sadie was happy, clean, and well fed after 6 days with Autumn! She usually doesn't eat in new places with other dogs... but she must have felt right at home with Autumn - her food was almost gone!
I've never used a stranger before to help take care of Monster, but he's getting very old (17) and all the usual dog-sitting folks were off on Christmas vacation. So this was a first for both Monster and I. I picked him up today and he's happy and healthy and he was very comfortable around Autumn and her dog friends. Plus the pictures of him while we were gone were wonderful!

Thanks so much, Autumn, for holding my hand through this!

Joe
