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.

  • We needed a place to board our dog for a month and knew that he would suffer in a traditional boarding facility. The cabin like setting with opportunities for him to make dog friends is what drew us to DCF and gave us the peace of mind to travel for an extended holiday. We opted for the 4 week board and train. Brody has always been reactive to strangers and somewhat aloof. He came back to us more relaxed and affectionate. Sheril was fantastic at getting him to focus and follow commands without being distracted. He is now a pleasure to walk and is happy when kids and neighbors come to the house. Overall a fantastic experience!

  • DCF was a godsend as I had to find a place for my dog rather quickly. The process was smooth and I knew that my dog was getting excellent care. Knowing that he was at DCF alleviated so much worry and I’ll be forever grateful for their excellent attention and care to my fur baby.
  • We live near Washington DC and wanted a good place for our three dogs to stay for several months while we are in the process of moving. We feel so lucky to have found Dancing Creek. Jackie in the transportation group picked our dogs up from our house. She was very sensitive to the fact that we were sad to be apart from them, and allowed us all the time we needed to say goodbye to our pups. She made sure that they were transported safely to the farm. We could tell immediately how well cared for our dogs would be. DCF has so much to offer - from the frequent pictures and videos, the unique cabins, large fenced field to run in and the great staff. Though we miss our dogs I feel comforted in knowing that they are safe and happy. We highly recommend Dancing Creek.
