About Us

Blue Ridge Golden Retrievers is owned by Dan and Marissa Gahafer, and is located in Britain, Virginia in Northwest Loudoun County Virginia. Our physical address is:  38011 Britain Road, Lovettsville Virginia 20180.

In light traffic we’re 45 minutes Northwest of Tyson’s Corner, 45 minutes East of Winchester Virginia, and 35 minutes Southwest of Frederick Maryland.

We’re what are often called “backyard breeders” in that we don’t have between several and many female Golden Retrievers that we breed as a business. We treat breeding as a professional responsibility and we have one male and one female. Our primary goal is providing people with companion pets that are calm, intelligent, loving, and empathetic that can be companions or trained as service dogs. We have had several Golden retrievers over the years, and we’ve been breeding them since 1989.

  1. Good Evening- our family is looking for a golden puppy and were referred to you. We currently have a 2 year old mix breed. We just lost a dog and can’t take the peace and quiet. We have high school children and would love to get a puppy in the spring before our daughter leaves for college. Please let me know if you have any available at this time. Your digs are beautiful!


    1. Hi Kelly, I just saw this comment and unfortunately all the puppies were taken on February 12th. I may have another litter in approximately 7 months and if you are interested then provide me with your name, address, phone number, and the gender of puppy you want via email to dan@gahafer.net. I will put your name on my wait list for the next litter and once the puppies are born, I’ll contact you to see if you want to put down a deposit then. Sincerely, Dan Gahafer
