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.

  • We were out of options with our new 170 pound rescue Efes and up against that wall, but Tamara of Dancing Creek was able to patiently walk us through the process and help us figure out how best to meet his needs and get him the training and support he needed to turn his life around. No exaggeration there: It certainly didn't happen over night, and this stuff took serious hard work, but we placed our faith in them and they blew every expectation away. Efes came with a lot of baggage and incomplete K-9 training. We took the drive down to Dancing Creek as a leap of faith, with no place else to go. Seems like he instinctively formed a special bond with Dakota, and its clear that he was well-loved and taken care of every step of the way. These folks love Dogs, and they know what they are doing. Tamara healed him from the inside out. Full stop. It's a scary thing to place your trust in strangers on the internet. On a frosty November morning we drove down to finally pick our boy up, and were greeted warmly by the Dancing Creek family we had come to know through video clips, photos, and emails that were posted daily, rain, shine, or Hurricane. (Yes you read that right! They communicated their preparations and updated everyone on the status of the storms, and restoration of power, too) The dog we met was a whole new Efes- joyful, agile, confident, focussed, and finally free from the abuse and worry that had haunted him for so long. Sheril is a phenomenal trainer, and their whole staff are dedicated to the work and making serious progress. Efes has now graduated from the Dancing Creek obedience program, and successfully earned both his AKC Canine Good Citizen certification, and Advanced CGC. And his coat looks goood! Can these women handle My dog? Yes.

    What an amazing resort for your dog/pet/best friend! Beautiful, clean grounds are exactly where you would want to leave your dog. Heated and air conditioned “cabins” with outdoor access. I love that Hamilton has been carefully paired with one or two other dogs who have kept him company and become his “pack.” Opportunities for training, long runs, individual attention and more. Lots of videos and photos to kept track of our boy. Highly recommend!
  • Dancing creek has truly been my savior over the past six months! I have a very sporadic and hectic travel schedule for work and they are able to help me out every single time. The training my dogs received while they were at Dancing Creek was fantastic and has made the time I do have at home with my pups far more enjoyable. The in home training sessions with trainer Sheril were especially helpful with getting my two pups used to city life again, and getting me up to speed fast on how to keep up with their training. I recommend Dancing Creek to all of my friends and am so thankful I know I have a wonderful place for my dogs to go when I am out of town.
