Gap View Ranch & Kennel



Gap View is located on 100 acres nestled in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  Gap View Ranch and Kennel was established in 1984 and has grown into one of the finest facilities in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Two separate kennel buildings provide housing and exercise yards for our sires, dams and puppies.  The health and happiness of our dogs is paramount here at Gap View, so we pay careful attention to their day-to-day care and feeding and to the cleanliness of their environment.

But be prepared! Once you visit us and meet our adorable puppies and their magnificent parents, you’ll find it very hard to leave without a Golden of your own!

Have a great day and welcome to Golden Retriever country.
