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.

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. 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.

  • I just had a fantastic experience using Dancing Creek Farm. It’s like a beautiful thoroughbred horse farm, but for dogs. They are perfect for active dogs and long term boarding. All dogs have roomy pens each with their own cabin which is air conditioned or heated and has doggie beds and dog door. Every day, dogs are also taken to a large pasture to run full out. Also they have a board and train option, which I did. I got lots of pictures and training videos throughout my trip. I swear my dogs were smiling in their pictures! It’s the first time my dogs (border collies) did not come back from boarding stressed and with diarrhea. And, for what you get, it’s a great deal. Better than up here (Dc area) They also have a small dog area. Dancing Creek Farm is in Cascades, VA. They are 5 hours from here but they have a great service where they will pick up and drop off your dogs (extra fee for this). They also help our active military members with boarding their dogs sometimes for a year or more with discounted rates. Really good people. They really care. I will be using them again, for sure!

    I think Dancing Creek is heaven for dogs. I was extremely fortunate to have found a place for my rottweiler. It’s where he should be if he can’t be home. His nutrition and training were on point. I have not heard of any place that approaches canine nutrition like the way Tamara does. I was a wreck dropping him off but after a view of the space, the cleanliness and seeing their protocols in action, I left reassured. He’s so calm and happy. He also passed his Canine Good Citizenship Certificate. The transport process was smooth and Jackie kept me updated the entire journey. If you’re hesitant or have questions, just ask. Tamara and Sheril are so helpful and responsive. There’s no place like home but Dancing Creek is as close to home you can get for your fur baby.
  • 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!
