    I’m from Louisiana and recently planned a trip to Charlottesville, VA. Always on the lookout for super-dog-friendly boarding facilities when I travel, just for fun I did a Google search in Virginia to see what might come up. Well I’ve boarded my dogs at really cool places in Austin, TX and Beaufort, SC, and even here in Louisiana, but what popped up that day on my computer screen appeared to be a magical sanctuary for dogs. It was Dancing Creek Farm. I was so impressed that, site unseen, my black lab, St. Charles, and I took off on a 2-day drive to board him there. I wasn’t disappointed. The country dog resort was even prettier than its online photos. It’s reasonably priced, and Tamara and Jen and their staff are 150% committed to providing a comfortable, clean, safe, healthy, and happy country resort for their pampered guests. Nearly two months later, St. Charles arrived back home a happier and calmer dog. It’s heartening to know a boarding facility of such exceptional quality and attention to its dog guests exists in the USA. And lucky for St. Charles and me, it was right there in Virginia!
  • Never felt better about leaving my two dogs somewhere. Fantastic operation all-around, where the health and happiness of the dogs is clearly the top priority.
