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.

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.

  • My hyper-active dog came back a much better behaved version of himself after 2 months at Dancing Creek working with Sheril! The dogs have a lot of space to run and play. They also send you adorable pics and videos of your fur baby so you can see how well the training is going. Would definitely recommend this place!

    Some six months ago, our dog Max, a four-year old Beagle, was a morbidly obese dog and causing problems around our apartment complex due to his issues with house training. Despite our different attempts to get him healthy and to properly train him in all the most basic of dog skills, it was quite evident that we needed to reach out to caring professionals who could help all of us. Ultimately, this meant temporarily placing him in a situation which would help us help him return to the healthy little 8-week puppy we loved with all our hearts. My wife and I, and of course, Max, needed a fresh start to get back on the path toward a healthy lifestyle. I researched the issue and found out about a viable solution, Dancing Creek Farm, a long-term boarding and training located outside of Danville, Virginia. So, we made the difficult decision to hand over the responsibilities of Max’s health and general well-being to Tamara and Dakota and the rest of the Dancing Creek team to provide Max the means of not only shedding his unhealthy weight, but also to go back to the drawing board to relearn how to follow commands and improve his self-control and discipline. I did the communicating with Dancing Creek throughout Max’s stay and saw that Dancing Creek was not just a viable solution, but a godsend for Max. I could see that Tamara and Dakota understood dogs and how to give them the help they needed, whatever that might be. In the four months that Max was at Dancing Creek, the wonderful team of Tamara and Dakota, the owners of Dancing Creek Farm, and their staff, helped Max lose thirty-two pounds and trained him to improve his discipline and self-control. They crafted a diet and exercise plan unique to Max, which surely couldn't have been easy when caring for eighty other dogs. It turned his life around. He's never been happier. We've been back home with Max for a week and see a more confident, better-trained dog who has a new lease on life. This is making a huge difference, not just in Max's life, but in the functioning of our family. We've gotten to know Tamara and Dakota through Max’s journey. We really respect their dedication to the animals and the hard work they put into to the health and well-being of the dogs at Dancing Creek. Tamara and Dakota and Team really care about this work. That really matters. In fact, it makes all the difference. Because of our gratitude, we will certainly be keeping track of all the other dogs at Dancing Creek. In addition, we want to thank the Dancing Creek community. They rallied around Max during his journey and supported him and us. We are so appreciative of the love they showed Max. (I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed the Facebook, IG videos and photos that chronicled Max’s journey.) We are also so excited for Dancing Creek, as they plan to spread their love for dogs with a non-profit for dogs who are of an advanced age. In conclusion, from Tamara and Dakota to the staff who worked so hard, we can never repay what you given Max and our family. It goes without saying that not all aspects of working with dogs is glamorous,as any pet owner knows. The DCF Team has shown that the work they do in this rural southern Virginia community is more to them than work. It's a calling to serve. This calling serves both the dogs and their owners. We thank you and salute you all.#Namaste
  • Tamara and her staff at Dancing Creek Farm (DCF) have been absolutely fantastic with our female Great Dane, Harley Rose. Harley is normally a little timid around strangers and so we were worried, especially since we were shipping her to Dancing Creek Farm from Japan without us! DCF kept us posted from pickup through the 6 months she was at the farm through very responsive email replies, videos, and pictures on their Facebook page! Love Dancing Creek Farm and highly recommend them to anyone in need of boarding your dog, either short or long term, Dancing Creek Farm will cater to your needs.
