    Since 2005 Excellent Customer Service

    For 18 years Dancing Creek Farm has provided long and short term boarding and training for customers across the world. Our canine holistic program has earned us 5 star reviews. A cage free concept means dogs are only crated as part of training. We are trusted by military deployed, government officials and nonprofit organizations that travel overseas for extended periods. We have created a unique environment to offer the highest standard of care in the industry.

    Although we teach obedience and correction it’s combined with reward, love, enrichment, exercise, fun and a great diet. We train dogs to feel comfortable in their crate, their day is filled with canine enrichment, social time, play, exercise, learning manners through distractions and every day situations.

    Once your dog checks in we add you and your family to a WhatsApp group. In that group is our trainer and team. You can ask questions, discuss concerns and you’ll get video updates weekly. You see your dog transition. The videos are also helpful for you to learn and archived in your chat to view again later.

    It's more than training; it's a transformational journey for both you and your dog. Get started today and experience the Dog Training Virginia difference.
