Pet Trust and Retirement

When we accept your pet into our program we agree to provide the absolute best care for your family, especially your dog. This includes their emotional needs and making sure they get what they need while being away from home. Hands down we are the best at what we do because we take the time to quickly answer your emails, text messages and calls.

Our cabins and all dog areas are insulated with AC/Heat. We keep them at about 65 degrees. In the summer at 70 degrees. The dogs can freely go in and out of their cabin via a dog door. Each area has a deck and its own fenced in play yard. All play yards then adjoin even larger HUGE play yards. They are let out in groups to run freely and play with other dogs.

Twice a week they are brushed. Once a week given a lavender warm towel wipe down with massage. All dogs are fed an grain free diet with healthy organic carrots, sweet potatoes, fish oils and kelp.. Additionally as part of our long-term dog-boarding program we add Green Viberance four times a week to enhance the health of your dog. Every day we make huge batches of bone broth made with grass fed bones from a local beef farm. Bone broth added to their food has so many health benefits! Please look it up! Your dog will look amazing when you pick them up! Check out our reviews and consistently you’ll hear this.

PRIVATE EXCLUSIVE – UNSOCIAL DOGS OR MULTIPLE DOGS

You can reserve a cabin without other dogs if your dog is aggressive towards other dogs. This option could also be used to reserve an entire cabin if you have 3 dogs. Additional dogs beyond 3 there is an additional charge.If your dog proves to be aggressive towards other dogs this rate will be applied. Aggressive means with the intent to harm, not little disagreements, however if you dog can not behave in a social setting they need to be moved to a private cabin and will need special handling (extra walks, more staff attention, etc.) Private cabin rate is $900.00 per month.

SHORT TERM DOG BOARDING

We have a 3 night minimum. Dogs must be social and we will ask for a temperament test. Short term is limited, however once you dog has been here you can easily reserve any time. Because most of the dogs are here long term we take special considerations for short term guest. We have very busy customers that need a few weeks here and there. We work with them to arrange transport or whatever we can do to make sure their dog is happy and safe.
Short term rates are $25.00 per day Dogs over 50 pounds is $30.00 per day. Because of our style of boarding we do not offer discounts for additional dogs unless your stay is over 14 days.
We will always try to work with you if we can.

  • 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!
