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.

  • 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

    Dancing Creek Farm is the Best Home for your dog when they cannot be with you! Tamara and her crew did a fabulous job in caring for our River!!���
  • Dancing Creek watched over my babies for 3 months as we went through the location process. The came back healthier than when they left. I received pictures and videos of them and they also helped with the best food and supplements to keep them healthy. It was a great home away from home for my dogs!
