    Love these people!

    Jon remembered us from last year and Blondie was right at home. Charlie walked her up and back. He got me out of the driveway safe (took his life in his hands doing that!).

    I hope they have many, many more years of success and that we get to see them again.

    doggie delight

    My 2 dogs absolutely loved it here! Lounging in the doggie pool, running in the large fenced in grassy lawn, playing with other big dogs. On day 2 they cried in the back of the car with excitement as we turned into the driveway. Day 3 the cries started as soon as we turned onto the road, they new where they were going! I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a place to confidently leave their beloved doggie!! Charlotte and Piper had a blast, left tired and well loved, best doggie day care!! 10 paws

    Excellent People

    I am very thankful for everyone at just fer paws. This is a great place in Gatlinburg to leave your puppy. Not your regular kennel environment. This is very important because our baby Addie is not used to cages. Shes an indoor puppy who is cuddle 24/7 and we couldn't see her in a place where she wouldn't feel at home. Owners put pictures for you to see and they have a large fenced area for the pups to play around.
    I could see Addie already attached to Jon when we picked her up. You can clearly see that they are truly animal lovers.

    Nice Doggy Daycare

    A really nice doggy daycare in Gatlinburg. It isn't a shelter setting. It is on a side of a mountain, on the owner's beautiful property. They have a large fenced yard for the dogs to play, and relieve themselves. They don't have a ton of requirements, like the other place in Gatlinburg. I highly recommend Just Fer Paws if visiting the area with your four legged friend.

    Great Place

    This is an excellent place for dog lovers! We decided to take a short vacation to Gatlinburg and bring our 11 week old puppy Westley with us. I spent some time prior to our trip researching activities for our pup prior to our trip and Just Fer Paws came up a few times. I emailed the owner and received a friendly and immediate response. We are a four dog family, however Westley is our puppy and I was extremely nervous to leave him in the hands of someone else. Upon arrival, I immediately saw a huge area for running and 4 happy dogs. It was a great place to allow Westley some free time, bond with other humans, and socialize with other dogs. I didn't have to crate him while we did some humans only activities. The owners offered an extremely fair price AND they posted photos of him on their Facebook page. It was so awesome! I could see what he was up to during the day. It's a great facility- highly recommended! ( also posted trip adviser)

    Thank you Charlie & Jon

    We just wanted to send you a special thank you for taking such great care of Macie for us during our vacation to Gatlinburg. We kept her with us most of the time because we were skeptical of leaving her with anyone but you made us feel comfortable leaving her. We just arrived back home in Arkansas a few minutes ago and she has been crashed out on the couch since we unlocked the door. LOL Thanks again and we will be posting great reviews about your business.

    New Owner

    My business is by appointment only for the safety of the dogs here. We live in a community of small shops and when we had a sign there were several people with and without dogs that drove up on a daily basis to see what we were. Many drove up our drive way to fast with no regard to dogs coming or going, or my own dogs. We also had people driving up at all hours we are open from 9:00 am- 7:00 pm daily. We do have an answering machine, so if you don't get us, leave a message. All dogs must be up to date on shots, flea free and non aggressive and this is verified when you make an appointment. Even dogs that come up just to exercise with their owners need an appointment so we can verify their health and to ensure the play area is available.

    No More Kennels for our dog

    Let me make this perfectly clear. I have no proof of any wrongdoing but can tell you about our dog's recent stay at Just Fer Paws.

    One day, my wife and daughter went to visit our dog and when they left, the dog nearly knocked over the fence tring to go with them. A couple of days later, we picked her up to spend the day with us and, when returing her, she refused to go in and sat her butt down and would not budge. The people at the kennel had to pick her up and carry her in. The only other place she doea this is at the vet when they want to take her back to the building she had her tail cut. Other than that, she is like a Wal-Mart greeter always friendly and willing to go with anyone. But, not here.

    On the way home, we noticed she had a bad cough, like choking. Took her to the vet and found out she had gotten kennel cough. For the first time in her six years, she had fleas, and her new blanket smelled nauseating.

    This was our dog's first, and last expereience, in a kennel.

    Wonderful dog park!

    Just Fer Paws is a great place for the dogs to run around! We stayed in a small cabin, so the puppies didn't have much room. For an incredibly reasonable price, the girls could run around all they wanted. Highly recommended!

    Love this place. Great service!

    I can't say enough good things about Dawn. She was super responsive and reliable. We had just gotten a puppy before our trip to Gatlinburg and we didn't want the pup to just go to any kennel. So when we found Dawn, she a god-send. Because our dog was his puppy, she decided to keep him with her dogs instead of with the other dogs (with other clients' dogs). Plus she was flexible enough to let us come and visit our puppy through out our trip. I have no idea what those other reviews are talking about!, obviously, someone is very jealous of Dawn's business. I would definitely use her kennel again!,

    Our own dog park!

    We were so disappointed that there were no dog parks in the Gatlinburg area, but then found Dawn. We just "rented" her fenced area (which is huge) for an hour to let our dogs play a few days. What a great thing to be able to do before leaving them in the cabin! They slept while we played! Clean and very reasonable!!

    lots of room to run

    Our dog Bam Bam has alot of energy and this place is GREAT. Huge area for the dogs to play. Even got great advice from the owner, who is also a dog trainer of many years. She works with her dogs at a theater in Pigeon Forge and has been on animal planet and more. Will be back!

    Emma loved it!!!!!!

    Left our dogs there while doing activities on vacation. Emma loved it and loved running around. Dawn is great and very knowledgable about dogs. I felt very comfortable leaving 'the perfect dog' Emma in her care. The hours are short but it's worth working around the hours for your dogs to run free. Highly recommend Dawn!!

    Doggy Day Care

    My dog loves going to the daycare! He loves that he has so much space to run and play. He has made many friends and comes home "pooped". Great facility. Recommend to all my friends!!!
