Rates & Pet Transport


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.

  • When desperate to find a place for my dog last minute, I was very lucky to stumble across Dancing Creek Farm's website. They took such excellent care of my little guy and kept me updated the whole time as to how he was doing. It was great to see little snapshots of his day on the facebook page and I can't say enough about how much time and effort they put into making sure the dogs are more than provided for but feel safe, comfortable, and loved.

    Words are not enough to express our sincere gratitude for all of the help and support Tamara and her staff provided to our six fur babies. Moving across the country can be trying, but throw in your 95 year old mother and six dogs... it gets ALOT trickier! Tamara stepped in and gave a large part of my family a safe place to call home until I was able to firmly get settled into my new life, bringing me some peace of mind during this transition. While in Tamara's wonderful care our babies were spoiled with more play time than they were used to, a new holistic diet, a leaner waistline, sparkling teeth, and renewed youth. They truly seem so happy! I don't know what I would have done without your help. Dancing Creek Farm, you are a godsend and blessing. Thank you, thank you, thank you so much! <3 Joyce, Chelsea, Dorothy, Bright, Brillo, Marley, Saint, Luke, and Leia
  • Thank you Dancing Creek Farm! This is truly a top of the line long term boarding facility for dogs. The DCF team did a wonderful job with my Apollo. Not only did he come back more mature, but is still the same lovable dog that he was when I originally dropped him off. This certainly shows their patience with all the different types of dogs that come by and their devotion to giving them the same love (if not more) than an owner. I would highly recommend using this wonderful gem, as they will 100% take care of your furry loved ones. Thanks again! -Evan
