  • We (and our pup) had a great experience with Dancing Creek Farm! Tamara and her team are excellent and you can tell all staff members really pay attention to every dog. Tamara is incredibly easy to get in touch with and responds quickly with updates and photos. Her daily Facebook posts are a great way to follow your pup's journey when you can't be there in person. The quality of care is unmatched and the price can't be beat! Thanks to everyone at Dancing Creek Farm for taking such great care of Arnie and putting us at ease during our time apart!

    Amazing, caring, compassionate owner that goes ubove and beyond to care for the dogs.
  • Both of our beloved dogs are still at Dancing Creek Farm under Tamara's care and have been for the past 6 months. We have been organizing the gruelling task of exporting two Giant Alaskan Malamutes to Australia. With my husband working all over the place in the US and me being in Australia, Tamara has not only eased my anxiety about leaving our dogs there but has gone above and beyond to ensure our dogs return home to Australia. Rounding up to Alaskan Malamutes is no easy task!! The constant updates and videos on Facebook make it clear that these dogs are living the high life at DCF, so much I wonder if they will even be happy back home with us and imagine they'd be dreaming about the days on the farm. She provides extra supplemental greens and coconut oil which are really important for our dogs coat and overall health and boy can you see the difference in the photos and video. The picturesque surroundings provide a calm environment for the dogs and they have so much room to run and spread their wings (or should I say paws). She has an AWESOME transport lady Jackie that has been helping with VET appointments and was super easy to deal & communicate with. She made sure everything was done efficiently. We were attracted to DFC because of the open cabins and open space the dogs live in. I could not recommend this facility enough! We have one dog leaving next month and another staying for longer. THANK you to all the staff at Dancing Creek Farm for looking after our furry kids day in and day out. Semper Fi
