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.

  • My son has had the best experience with his 2 dogs (his kids) at Dancing Creek Farm. Tamara has such a unique place for boarding dogs for an extended period of time, and an exceptional love for all the dogs in her care. My son's vet told him that Hoss needed to lose weight and last spring while Hoss was at Dancing Creek his diet there was healthy and he came home in July a slimmer and healthier weight....his Vet was very happy. Ziva is a special case in that she is petrified of any loud noises, any storms, thunder, gunshots, etc...they made sure to board up her surrounding area ao she would not hurt herself trying to get out. Staff go and sit with her during storms and put her in a thunder coat to keep her calm. The dogs are exercised, played with, and have their only little home and area. I highly recommend Dancing Creek to anyone who has to leave their dog for an extended stay. It has been a Godsend for my son to have this place for his dogs.

    Our two senior dogs have been at Dancing Creek Farm since April, 2017 and I could not be happier with the quality of care Tamara and her team have provided for our dogs. I love Tamara's holistic approach and the amount of exercise the dogs get from running around in large fenced areas which I know my Jack Russell loves! They regularly post pictures and videos of our dogs, which all of us really appreciate and enjoy. I don't know what our family would've done with our dogs without DCF, but I'm so happy we found them!
  • I really love this place and the staff was amazing. We boarded our dogs for 2 weeks and I was worried about our fur babies but Tamara posted pics of them on Facebook and they looked so happy and healthy! When we picked them up they looked leaner and better than when we dropped them off! I definitely recommend Dancing Creek Farm for boarding your dogs. You will not be disappointed!
