Highly Recommended!

  • Dancing Creek Farm is a wonderful place for any dog to stay if you need to be away. Tamara and her staff are such loving, caring, competent, considerate individuals who bend over backwards to ensure all the dogs in their care happy, healthy and secure. We highly recommend placing your loved doggie here – you will not be disappointed. We were overseas for 7 months and had an unexpected situation occur which required us to find new housing options for our dog immediately and Tamara was the answer to a desperate prayer I threw out to the universe. Her home and farm is what I lovingly refer to as a wonderful doggie resort. The facility is beautiful, well-maintained, extremely spacious, and well thought out for dogs to be dogs. Communicating with Tamara was extremely efficient. We knew if she could not answer right away, it was because she was out caring for our dog and would respond as soon as she could. When we went to pick up Nessie, we saw firsthand just how wonderful Dancing Creek Farm is for dogs and the families who love them. Choosing a long or short-term location for your beloved pet is so difficult because we tend to worry so much about our babies… rest assured if you choose Dancing Creek Farm – your dog will have the best possible time away from his/her family. Thank you Tamara for everything you did to make Nessie’s stay as comfortable as possible and for managing her ”needy” mother so I wouldn’t worry so much!

    This is our second time boarding our two lab-mixes for longer-term deployments. The piece of mind that they are happy, healthy and being so well taken care of is absolutely priceless! We are so thankful for just how thoughtful Tamara and her staff are concerning all aspects of each dogs livelihood and takes the time to pair them accordingly. We love the non-kennel, wholistic boarding approach and could not be more happy, or more thankful for two great experiences sending our pups here! **And an extra bonus is they work with you if you require travel for your pups! We are stationed in FL and they helped eliminate extra stress (during the already stressful times of pre and post deployment madnesses), by working with us to arrange both pick up and return dates. They arrived back to us safe, sound, healthy and so happy!
  • I have to travel from time to time for extended periods for work, and Dancing Creek has been immensely helpful in making sure my dog is well cared for while I'm gone. The staff has gone out of their way to be accommodating and to provide advice on how to keep her in shape, and it's great to see my little apartment-raised dog get the space to run around that is much harder to come by in the city. My work travel winds up being her summer camp. I've relied on Dancing Creek several times now, and every time has been a positive experience.
