  • Dancing Creek Farm is absolutely AMAZING! I call it a summer camp for dogs. I left for about 6 weeks out of the country and they put my mind at ease. Originally just 1 dog was supposed to stay. But while overseas I had to make the decision to send my other dog there as well. After speaking to Tamara we were able to arrange for her folks to pick up my dog Bishop. He didn't have all the necessary shots but that wasn't a problem. She was able to take Bishop to the vet for me so that he could still come. Once he got there she noticed that he was overweight and had a difficult time getting around. She put him on a diet, got him exercising, and he's now a young dog again! Its been about 4 days since I picked them both up and Bishop is almost annoyingly energetic. I think he's just so happy he's feeling good again and just wants to play all day long. I spent YEARS trying to get his weight under control. I asked the vet, did research and still nothing. I'm so grateful to have found this place. Also, I was able to regularly check facebook overseas to check out the pictures they posted of my pets. They looked so happy I was beginning to get nervous that they wouldn't want to come home. Luckily they still love me. This place is absolutely the best place to send your beloved pet. They are all genuinely good people!!!

  • Dancing Creek Farms took great care of our fur babies. We entrusted with them for three months while we moved and got settled overseas. Both pups have unique needs and DCF exceeded our expectations. We are very happy with the service we received from the staff and owners! We will use them again in the future. The worked seamlessly with the relocation service to make sure all paperwork was ready for the big trip.
