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.



The following vaccines are required for all dogs checking in:

Rabies, Bordetella and Distemper, canine influenza virus H3N8 and canine influenza virus H3N2, Adenovirus Type 2, Parainfluenza, Parvo Vaccine, Lepto Bacterin (MLV) and Lyme Vaccine.



Flat Monthly Rate is discounted for 3 months or longer. Under 3 months is considered short term. $550.00 a month for the first dog then $250.00 for each additional dog. This rate is for social dogs that can be boarded with other dogs. The monthly rate includes treats, baths, nails, brushing and teeth brushing. This monthly rate does not include food. Long-term boarders must provide a proof of vaccines, micro chip and proof of sociability unless your are reserving a private cabin. If you live long distance you can get this from a vet or local dog daycare facility. Dogs with long hair, an additional $30.00 per month is added for brushing. Groom is provided at an additional fee.



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. When renting a private cabin you are welcome to being beds, toys, anything you want to set up in your private cabin.




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.
We do require non-refundable deposits. Our space can be limited, therefore we ask that you reserve ahead of time.




This long-term rate is based on three months or longer. $500.00 for the first dog and $150.00 for additional dogs. This discounted rate is based on availability. You must provide proof of enrollment or special circumstances that qualify you for a discounted rate. It is our goal to help you keep your dogs during these difficult transitions. The rate does not include food. Please understand that we can’t operate 100% at a discount but we always try to help as many people as we can. Private cabin for unsocial dogs discounted is $850.00 per month for up to 3 dogs. Additional dogs in the same cabin is an additional $200.00 per dog.



Long term pet trust are set up ahead of time in the event of your untimely death. In the event we are contacted we will immediately dispatch a ground transport person to pick up your dog. We will then enter into a forever care pet retirement program.Older dogs need special care. Sometimes this is not possible for a busy family. At the farm your senior pet will receive advanced holistic diet and care. They will go for walks and benefit from our enrichment program.These rates are calculated based on many factors.

  • We boarded our very large Anatolian shepherd mix for 3 months and got training for anxiety and aggression. It's often difficult to find boarding for dogs of his size (110lbs, very tall, very muscular), and research of the market makes me feel like a lot of trainers would attempt to remove his guarding instinct, or that I'd be priced out of anything I was looking for. Dancing Creek was such an amazing find, and worth driving 6hrs for the stay. They worked with us on pricing and were excited to get a big boy like Gus, and immediately had a training plan in mind to curve his instincts to make them easier to control without diminishing them. Even more, we were so happy to hey were super health conscious and had a plan in mind to help his joints that often get minor strains (normal for big active dogs). We got regular pictures and video training updates throughout his stay. His coat looked so much healthier and fluffier, and he looked so happy performing behaviors in videos. He even made some doggy friends, which he is picky about so we were stoked to see him loosening up. I loved that the staff gave him nick-names "Gus the Bus" which made me feel he was truly loved for his 3 month stay. When I came to pick him up all the staff stopped to tell me how much they loved Gus and that they were sad to see him go. Sheril got to know Gus so well and had his place so advanced that he would even wait for a tennis ball (his life's purpose), and especially strangers he was unsure of. He learned leashless walking, so his recall was super disciplined. But he was still the same goofball who doesn't know his size. His joints were so improved he was galloping after tennis balls like his life depended on it all over again. When had to drive him all the way to California, and his having been trained to relax in "place" eased his anxiety throughout the ride. I'm not sure we would have made it otherwise. It also helped him adjust and relax in hotels and eventually his new home. Learning "Heel" on walks made bringing him around strangers, even confined places like stairs, easy and no longer embarrassing for having a great big loud bark boy. Gus knew to focus on me and ignore anyone he might be afraid of. It's not even been a week since getting him back, and we'll be following up with Sheril for some skype training sessions to make sure we behave around Gus the way we need to for his training to really shine. To keep my gushing on planet Earth, if there was one thing to complain about, its that communication on incidental costs throughout his stay could have been better. I knew to assume things like him needing training tools like an e-collar could come up, but the possibility of purchasing one could have been discussed at price quoting. Tamara is always available by text, anytime, so a single communication mix-up over a 3-month stay is nothing to discount the amazing quality of love and care my dog got at such reasonable prices. 5-stars isn't enough, Dancing Creek is such an amazing gem. I wish Gus was still on the East coast so he could come back!

    We cannot say enough positive comments about DCF! We needed to be out of the country for work but we’re besides ourselves about how we would care for our pups (sadly due to circumstances taking them wouldn’t have been an option for them due to the distance/their ages/personalities (can get stressed)). We found DCF! The staff is amazing! They provide love, attention, exercise and a personal healthy diet for your pup. We were able to take them out for a few weeks during the holidays on a trip back to the US. Our pups were so happy, healthy and well adjusted:-). When we do get back permanently I know they were love to have periodic stays to enjoy all the farm has to offer and visit with their mates🐶❤️. We love DCF😊
  • Just picked up my pup from 2 months on the farm!she came home happy, healthy, and 10lbs lighter!! I can’t recommend DCF enough! I know she had an amazing time there. Best place (for an incredible price) for long term boarding!
