  • Tamara and her team at Dancing Creek have been a n amazing find. I have found myself in a position requiring a lot of extended travel and needed a place to house my 3 labs. They had grown up roaming 3 acres and I could not bear the thought of them being caged up because I was out of town. I found Dancing Creek and was able to secure a cabin for them. The cabin is amazing, they have their own run, and Tamara gets them out to play in the larger areas on a regular basis. She has absolutely spoiled them! One message she sent said that she noticed one of the boys was running around a lot and looked like he was losing weight so she added and additional organic egg to his food. I don't even but those for my self! In the summer she makes sure they have water in their private pool and sends me notes and pictures on a regular basis. I am concerned that when I get them back home I will dissapoint! One other note I will add. Tamara ends up with dogs that are sometimes abandoned or mistreated. She cares for these animals out of her pocket. That is not always the best business decision but it is the best heart decision. In the past she has asked for donations to expand things at the farm so she can take care of more animals. I have cheerfully given and if you are an animal lover i would encourage you to do so as well. Dancing Creek Farm really makes a difference!

    I can vouch that Dancing Creek Farm is the place you want your pet to be for short term or long term boarding. I have been around boarding facilities and rescues for over 10 years now, and Dancing Creek Farm hands down provides the best living environment as well as a high standard of dog nutrition. The animals are taken care of thoroughly and are treated as they are children, because in reality, that is what they ultimately mean to Dancing Creek Farm. Just as you would only leave your child with a trusted babysitter, consider doing the same for your sweet Pups whenever you have long term boarding needs. Dancing Creek Farm goes above and beyond to make sure that both you and your fur babies are satisfied with their process and facility. Highly Recommended!
  • My husband and I boarded our two dogs at Dancing Creek Farm. Our dogs are Vizsla's...they need lots of exercise, love and attention. They got all of this and more at Dancing Creek. We were so impressed by the facilities, the kindness of the staff, the attention to the dogs and the care they received. We live in Philadelphia, many miles from Dancing Creek, but knew this was the best place for our dogs for long term boarding. Dancing Creek was so accommodating and flexible for our needs. They posted many videos and pictures of our pups so we could see how much fun they were having. They came back healthy, full of energy and with shining coats. We were so happy to find a place that never put our dogs in kennels, gave them huge yards to play in and lots of exercise. We will 100% be using their services again. Thank you Dancing Creek for taking such good care of our dogs Cooper and Blue.
