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.

  • Both of our beloved dogs are still at Dancing Creek Farm under Tamara's care and have been for the past 6 months. We have been organizing the gruelling task of exporting two Giant Alaskan Malamutes to Australia. With my husband working all over the place in the US and me being in Australia, Tamara has not only eased my anxiety about leaving our dogs there but has gone above and beyond to ensure our dogs return home to Australia. Rounding up to Alaskan Malamutes is no easy task!! The constant updates and videos on Facebook make it clear that these dogs are living the high life at DCF, so much I wonder if they will even be happy back home with us and imagine they'd be dreaming about the days on the farm. She provides extra supplemental greens and coconut oil which are really important for our dogs coat and overall health and boy can you see the difference in the photos and video. The picturesque surroundings provide a calm environment for the dogs and they have so much room to run and spread their wings (or should I say paws). She has an AWESOME transport lady Jackie that has been helping with VET appointments and was super easy to deal & communicate with. She made sure everything was done efficiently. We were attracted to DFC because of the open cabins and open space the dogs live in. I could not recommend this facility enough! We have one dog leaving next month and another staying for longer. THANK you to all the staff at Dancing Creek Farm for looking after our furry kids day in and day out. Semper Fi

    Dancing Creek Farm is the Best Home for your dog when they cannot be with you! Tamara and her crew did a fabulous job in caring for our River!!���
  • Dancing Creek watched over my babies for 3 months as we went through the location process. The came back healthier than when they left. I received pictures and videos of them and they also helped with the best food and supplements to keep them healthy. It was a great home away from home for my dogs!
