    We love Dancing Creek! They cared for our dog for 3 months and we could not have had a better experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for long or short term boarding. They will treat your dog like a part of their family.
  • We have to admit we were a bit concerned leaving our two dogs in the care of “strangers” for eight months while we traveled the world. Boy, were our fears unfounded! Tamara and her staff at Dancing Creek took marvelous care of 8-year-old Beau and 11-year-old Cassie. Beau is a Black Lab with a bit of German Shepherd thrown in. Cassie was…well, Cassie: Pointer, Dalmation, one or two other breeds, smart as a whip but high-strung. Both received tender, loving care. Tamara made sure to keep us up to date on their condition, sending emails, photos and an occasional web cam link to see how they were doing. And they did great. Unfortunately, despite Dancing Creek’s wonderful care and quick action getting her to a vet, Cassie passed away before our return, succumbing to a recurring auto-immune disease. Tamara and the Dancing Creek staff were heartbroken, as was Beau, who had lived with Cassie his whole life. Recognizing he needed an adjustment period, Tamara took him into her home and showed him extra special affection during his grieving period. It was just one sign of the great love she has for the animals in her care. When we arrived to pick up Beau, he looked better than ever. Tamara had put him on a regimen of fish oil supplements which gave his coat a healthy sheen and cut his shedding to a minimum—something we never thought of doing ourselves. Another trip around the world probably is not in our foreseeable future, but if we do have to leave Beau in someone else’s care for any extended period, you can bet we’ll be happy to bring him back to Dancing Creek. And we bet he’d be happy to be there. --Bebe and Peter Landis
