You shouldn't need begin or auto if you're using chained dispatch -  

package MyApp::Controller::Root;

sub base : Chained('/') PathPart('') CaptureArgs(0) { # Top level auto  
or begin code here }

package MyApp::Controller::Foo;

sub base : Chained('/base') PathPart('foo') CaptureArgs(0) { #  
controller level auto or begin code here }

sub item : Chained('base') PathPart('') CaptureArgs(1) { # Grab <id>

sub show : Chained('item') PathPart('') Args(0) { # End of chain for /
