About Autumn

12 Years Experience Caring For Dogs
We are a fun, dog-loving family of 6 with years of experience caring for furry friends of all sizes, ages, breeds, and personalities. With one of us home nearly all the time to care for our children, your pup will never want for attention or affection. And we respect and honor dogs' need for plenty of exercise and exploration, too. That is why we have a huge, fenced-in yard and go for multiple walks each day, including a long one in the beautiful woods of Rock Creek Park (off-leash optional). Our own two dogs (a 4-year-old mutt and an 8-month-old Shih Tzu) have grown up welcoming other 4-legged friends into our home and get along with everyone.

We offer more walks, outdoor play, and attention than most dogs get in their own homes, which is why they are all so happy to be with us and find it hard to leave. A typical day at our house starts pretty early with a short walk around the neighborhood and/or some supervised time in the yard. The dogs get breakfast, and then sometime mid-morning, we are off to Rock Creek Park for a long walk (off-leash optional). That walk lasts anywhere between 45 minutes and an hour and a half. The dogs are usually tuckered out after that, so we spend a few hours of downtime at home. Then, there is a mid-afternoon neighborhood walk, dinner, and 1-2 evening walks. Throughout the day, the dogs are welcome to play in the fenced in yard (always supervised) anytime they like. With an action-packed day like that and all the gentle, loving hands petting, cuddling, and playing at our house, dogs are content and satisfied.

We needed a dog sitter last minute, and Autumn came to our rescue. Bentley had an awesome stay, and came home worn out from playing so much! We highly recommend!
Autumn and her family watched my Izzy for two days while I went out of town. Our dogs got along and I loved that Autumn had a roomy backyard for the dogs to play in. When I picked her up, it was nice to see that her kids also enjoyed their time with Izzy. Izzy was definitely worn out from playtime when we got home! I will definitely contact Autumn again for boarding.
Autumn and her family are awesome! Her two dogs Coco and Edith were loving, sweet, and friendly. Moose had a great time and was well taken care of, I know he had a blast because he slept for a day to recover from all his playtime. This family is great with dogs and I would recommend them to anyone who's in need of a great sitter. Thank you, so much Moose was very happy and so were we.
Autumn and her family were wonderful. Now I know where to leave my dog when we go on vacation!! Thanks so much!!!
Autumn and her family are fantastic! They opened their busy home up to our "expressive" beagle, and treated her like part of the family. They have a huge, fenced yard for endless roaming and take the dogs on several walks. Our beagle came home very well exercised and calm! Your pup will not be bored!

We feel fortunate to have found them. The whole family is very laid back and fun!
Nice family with a big yard, but only book with them if your dog doesn't need a lot of care.

My 7 month old puppy, who was both crate trained and house trained, stayed with Autumn for 2 weeks. Since she's come back, she's been pooping and peeing in her crate at night. I think she was left too long in her crate and started developing a bad habit. Autumn didn't let me know that this was happening, so it was an unpleasant surprise for my friend who is taking care of my dog until I return from a long business trip.

If your dog is older and doesn't need a lot of care, then this might be the place for you- Autumn is super nice and her kids are adorable. They are a nice family that really loves dogs.
Fantastic experience for our dog every time.
Autumn and her family were absolutely wonderful hosts to our pup, Henry. Autumn was very easy to coordinate drop off and pick up with, provided us with updates on Henry, and he came home to us incredibly exhausted after lots of play and park time. Thanks again, Autumn!
