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.

  • I was so incredibly blessed to find a temporary home for my Ellie. Ellie was with Tamara and her crew at the Farm for 17 months, so yes, this was her home away from home. And these lovely people were her family. They loved and cared for her like she was their own. She grew, matured, played and came back her happy, healthy and sweet self. The healthy, holistic approach worked out so well for her and I never once worried that Ellie wasn't alright. When my plans changed, Tamara worked to accommodate me. When funds were tight she worked with me and said, "Pay when u can." I consider her Ellie's second mom and the Farm her forever home away from home. Can't thank them enuf or recommend them any more highly. If you send your dog there, leave your worries behind. All will be well!

    Dancing Creek Farm is a wonderful place for any dog to stay if you need to be away. Tamara and her staff are such loving, caring, competent, considerate individuals who bend over backwards to ensure all the dogs in their care happy, healthy and secure. We highly recommend placing your loved doggie here – you will not be disappointed. We were overseas for 7 months and had an unexpected situation occur which required us to find new housing options for our dog immediately and Tamara was the answer to a desperate prayer I threw out to the universe. Her home and farm is what I lovingly refer to as a wonderful doggie resort. The facility is beautiful, well-maintained, extremely spacious, and well thought out for dogs to be dogs. Communicating with Tamara was extremely efficient. We knew if she could not answer right away, it was because she was out caring for our dog and would respond as soon as she could. When we went to pick up Nessie, we saw firsthand just how wonderful Dancing Creek Farm is for dogs and the families who love them. Choosing a long or short-term location for your beloved pet is so difficult because we tend to worry so much about our babies… rest assured if you choose Dancing Creek Farm – your dog will have the best possible time away from his/her family. Thank you Tamara for everything you did to make Nessie’s stay as comfortable as possible and for managing her ”needy” mother so I wouldn’t worry so much!
  • We boarded our dog at Dancing Creek for a year. She came back happy, slimmer, and well behaved. I would definitely trust Tamara and team to take care of her again.
