About Us

I love animals, especially dogs and I’ve worked with animal rescues for many years. One year I decided to merge all the things I love and turn it into a business. Over the years it evolved and we quickly became known for our quality of care. Dancing Creek Farm is not just a dog boarding facility but a style of living, a a future model for sustainable living and animals.

My name is Tamara Burton and it is my honor and privilege to provide the very Long term dog boarding best care for your dog. We specialize in long term dog boarding for military deployed, students and families in transition.

We take a lot of pride in our military fostering program because we have worked very hard and have earned a wonderful reputation. We began long term dog boarding in 2006.

Caring for dogs long term is a big commitment because you must provide a stimulating and loving environment for some very loved dogs. We take the extra steps to not only provide home/camp like housing (no kennels-no runs) but we also provide lots of affection, walks, kisses and we encourage sociability. No other facility could possibly meet our standard of care because we are a team of dedicated animal lovers addressing the emotional, nutritional and instinctual needs of your dog. We are a grain free organic facility providing healthy natural supplements, fruit and vegetables, lots of brushing, aromatherapy hot towel treatments and massage for our older guest.

We work closely with families providing pictures, videos and even arrange cams or Skype calls. Your emails are promptly replied to and you can always reach me personally to discuss your pet. I will do whatever it takes to give you peace of mind and to be sure that your beloved pet is safe and happy.

We are located in Southern Virginia just west of Danville, very close to the North Carolina state line. We service the entire USA (an worldwide) offering long term boarding for families. Because our rates are affordable and our reputation unsurpassed we have dogs come here from all over! Dancing Creek Farm is truly a unique one of a kind boarding experience. We offer transport for a fee. We also have dogs fly in and we can pick you up at the airport. We even have some customers leave their dogs and car here to fly from Raleigh Durham Airport that offers international flights to most counties. We are happy to take you to the airport. We want to make this a great experience for you and as stress-free as possible. No one can do this better then Dancing Creek Farm.

  • When desperate to find a place for my dog last minute, I was very lucky to stumble across Dancing Creek Farm's website. They took such excellent care of my little guy and kept me updated the whole time as to how he was doing. It was great to see little snapshots of his day on the facebook page and I can't say enough about how much time and effort they put into making sure the dogs are more than provided for but feel safe, comfortable, and loved.

    Words are not enough to express our sincere gratitude for all of the help and support Tamara and her staff provided to our six fur babies. Moving across the country can be trying, but throw in your 95 year old mother and six dogs... it gets ALOT trickier! Tamara stepped in and gave a large part of my family a safe place to call home until I was able to firmly get settled into my new life, bringing me some peace of mind during this transition. While in Tamara's wonderful care our babies were spoiled with more play time than they were used to, a new holistic diet, a leaner waistline, sparkling teeth, and renewed youth. They truly seem so happy! I don't know what I would have done without your help. Dancing Creek Farm, you are a godsend and blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! <3 Joyce, Chelsea, Dorothy, Bright, Brillo, Marley, Saint, Luke, and Leia
  • Thank you Dancing Creek Farm! This is truly a top of the line long term boarding facility for dogs. The DCF team did a wonderful job with my Apollo. Not only did he come back more mature, but is still the same lovable dog that he was when I originally dropped him off. This certainly shows their patience with all the different types of dogs that come by and their devotion to giving them the same love (if not more) than an owner. I would highly recommend using this wonderful gem, as they will 100% take care of your furry loved ones. Thanks again! -Evan
