  • Want to give a big shout out to Tamara for helping me improve bens mobility. He is a 4 yr old german shepherd that at age. 2 we found out has hip dysplasia in both hips and a couple months ago had a double knee ACL tear. He could not rise from a resting position with out assistance and could not walk outside without help. So I contacted Tamara before undergoing very expensive operations for help. She recommended the green viberance , a fresh egg every other day, grain free feed, bone broth, and turmeric golden paste. And of course he was on very restricted activity for 8 weeks I'm pleased to say he can now get up on his own he is now enjoying short walks and just enjoying life . His over all health is greatly improved he's even lost 11 pounds. Can't be more greatful for the time Tamara has taking answering all my questions! I'm pleased to say his acl knee tears are healing naturally and for the hips there is no cure but with all she thought me it has made him Mobil again and he is off his pain meds .

    I was a vet tech for many years and am VERY particular about where I leave my fur babies when I go out of town. Dancing Creek Farm gets two big thumbs up. Our dogs loved this place.The cabins are so nice I would camp out in one myself! We'll be recommending this place to friends and family. Gilligan and Maya look forward to coming back.
  • The reputation of this place preceded it and was spot on. I was living in San Diego and needed to board my dogs for a few months until I bought a new house. My dogs HATE to fly, and rightly so. I wanted my dogs to stay here so badly that I packed up my Jeep and drove 3000 miles to Virginia to drop them off. They offered to pick them up from the airport but I'm crazy about my dogs and how they are treated, hence my trust in Dancing Creek. My trust wasn't misplaced. They eat well, socialize, and exercise regularly. Emily gave me a tour of the facility, including their climate-controlled cabins. It made that rough day a little easier. Tamara and company do their best to give updates of their stay and to remain flexible in regards to compensation. This time apart from my boys has been rough, but the distress is simply from missing them, NOT from worrying about their well-being. Their love of dogs is obvious, as is their compassion for the needs of the humans involved. I cannot recommend this place enough. I hope I never need their services again, but will make the drive if necessary knowing my dogs will be in resort designed specifically for them. Thank you!
