Rates & Pet Transport

Ground Transport

We offer door-to-door or meet halfway ground transport. Our customers are literally all over the world! We easily service areas outside of Virginia by offering these transport services. We can also arrange pick-up at one of the major airports close the farm.
Ground transport is can be arranged for both long and short-term boarding. Our boarding prices are lower yet we have the highest standard of care in the industry. Rather than your dog staying cooped up in kennels let us pick up in DC, Maryland, North Carolina and almost anywhere in the US.

Please email for a transport quote info@dancingcreekfarm.com


Because we specialize in long term dog boarding and offer a cage free facility we have customers from all over the USA. When traveling out of the country some families chose to drive to our facility, leave their car here at the farm and fly from Raleigh Durham Airport. We are happy to help you with whatever needs you have.
We can arrange to drop off or pick up. The rate is $15.00 per hour plus gas charges. If one way is longer the 7 hours it requires an overnight stay therefore there are hotel charges.
Many airlines will not fly your pet during the summer months. It’s important to plan ahead and make sure your pet arrives safely. If you are looking to fly your dog to Dancing Creek Farm United Airlines now offers a Safe Pet Transport Service and we are happy to pick up your dog at the Raleigh Durham Airport.


For longer trips (over 10 hours) we charge a flat day rate of 150.00 for the driver overnight. Gas is then added, plus tolls and hotel.
We often meet people halfway. Our most popular meeting places and cost are:
Culpepper VA – 150.00
Charlotte NC – 150.00
DC Metro Area – 225.00 ( traffic! Culpepper VA is only an hour if you can meet!)
Nashville TN – 550.00 (Includes driving, gas, hotel)
Here are the rates for United Pet Safe Program. You should always try to fly direct flights.

It is important to plan ahead. We prefer that your pet arrive during the afternoon with plenty of daylight hours so we can spend time with them. Its important that they feel comfortable and have some time to adjust. Please use the form below to request a reservation. If the form does not work for you please go to our contact section to call or email.

  • My pup LOVES DCF. He was there for long term boarding and though he was terrified at first, DCF made home feel at home. Also got some amazing training from Sheril and the DCF crew. would absolutely recommend and my pup will be back!

    My wife and I were going on a vacation and decided to take the opportunity to have our Goldendoodle, Lumie, trained while she was being boarded. My wife found Dancing Creek Farm, which is 4 HOURS AWAY FROM US, but trust me when I say the 8-hour round trip drive (twice) was worth it. Tamara and Dakota put Lumie on a diet that settled her sensitive stomach better than we’ve been able to in the 7 months she’s been with us. Her kennel and the grounds were clean and very impressive. Sheril was able to do wonders with training Lumie and sent multiple videos to keep us updated on her progression. The staff at DCF is extremely professional and go above and beyond to take care of the dogs they’ve been trusted with. I’ve already recommended them to several friends. You can search #lumiedcf (your pet gets a hashtag!) on Facebook or Instagram to see how much fun Lumie and her kennel mate Marshal were having. Thanks again DCF for taking great care of Lumie while we were away and returning a well-trained puppy to us.
  • Dancing Creek Farm are amazing! I had a 10 day trip planned and my pet sitter canceled less than a week before the trip, and I have 4 little dogs who most people call misbehave crew. Well Tamara told me that they would be happy to board them for the 10 days. Their reputation doesn’t even do justice in my book. These are my kids, and anyone in my life will tell you, if something happens to one of those dogs under your watch, you best leave town. I could not have ask for a better team to take such good care of my 4. Everytime I text, Dakota was quick to text me right back letting me know they were doing great. When I picked those babies up this morning, I figured they would be climbing the fence to get to me, well I was surprised at how happy they was and my oldest was even asleep paying me no mind. I would recommend them to any and everybody that needs any of the services that they offer. Thank you for helping me out last minute and the wonderful care that you gave to each of my babies.
