Mattiaci Golden Retrievers: Our Available Puppies Started on Training:
**FYI: Puppies and dogs listed typially go extremely fast as once we post, we have multiple inquiries very quickly, as well as a waiting list.
We may have dogs or puppies that we are growing out and starting on training. We always have inquiries from homes not
interested in the young puppy stages. These puppies are sleeping through the night, are crate trained and are started on housetraining. With their temperament & activity level,
they would make excellent therapy dogs with the training and manners they have.
Shipping and transport costs are additional unless picked up in person at Mattiaci.
As soon as a home we have been corresponding with, tells us they have sent the contract and payment, we take that dog off of our
page. Started Puppies and dogs typically range between $4,500 and $9,500. Transport or shipping cost can be anywhere from $700-$1,400 for an adult depending on size,
timing, distance, and mode of transport.
Occasionally, homes want a started puppy to continue training as their personal service dog. There are several different kinds of service dogs including guide dogs,
hearing dogs, PTSD dogs, mobility dogs, seizure alert/response dogs, psychiatric service dogs, and autism dogs. There are also other types of dogs with jobs that
help people, including therapy dogs and emotional support animals. We do not work with people who are not already associated or set up with a trainer for this work.

The Train a Dog Save a Warrior is an excellent resource for those in or retired from the military. (TADSAW) program serves the warrior, the family and the community, by providing the warrior with a K-9 rescue 'Battle Buddy' and the training and tools needed to become an accredited Warrior/Service Dog Team.
TADSAW additionally provides for the training of a Medical Alert Service Dog for any warrior's immediate family, the spouse or children, surviving with compassion fatigue, secondary PTSD, or any other mental health issue diagnosed while the warrior was deployed or on active duty.
Several of our goldens do Therapy work with their owners. For those interested in therapy work, David Frei has a great interview on therapy dogs: Davi Frei, advocate for Therapy Dogs
David also has a great book called "Angel By My Side."
Another great therapy and working dog resource is: Intermountain Therapy Animals
All of our puppies are raised as our pets and show dogs: weekly grooming, basic training
and good manners. They travel well on car rides and are very well socialized. We do puppy daycare and boarding. They have met several new dogs and get along
with new dogs very well.
Every one of our older dogs & puppies go on 30-45 minute runs together with us most evenings, and play and swim on our creek.
For ground transport, we recommend a dedicated pet transport service, and not a random U-SHIP person. A person flying with the dog or puppy is always my first preference.
Our "puppy and dog questionnaire" and "application" is very simple. To be seriously considered for one of our puppies, tell
us about your home for dogs. We want to know about our potential homes to make sure our puppies are a good match.
We have lifelong relationships and are always available with our buyers. Specifically we want to know:
- your previous and current dog history
- What city, state do you live in?
- what is your background in dogs?
- what kind of a home do you have for dogs?
- will you be using a nanny transport service, want to meet at the airport, or come to us in person?
During Covid we do not do tours. Puppy or dog pick up is very brief at my property as I'm a partial caretaker for my at-risk 84 YO father.

We are just starting to be able to cargo ship again. Current transport choices are:
_ - cargo shipping to the Western Region of the US on AK Air.
- You can fly in on any airline, then fly out on AK AIR. AK Air charges $100/dog per way in cabin.
- I can meet buyers at the airport if they have same-day turnaround flights.I have in cabin bags to loan -- if you can immediately mail them back.
- occasionaly I can do nanny transport depending on my schedule, flights to Seattle are easiest and most readily available from me.
- You can drive, or pay one of your friends to get your dog.
- We recommond dedicated pet transporters such as Paw's Transportation 260-687-9304
for transport quotes if you are unable to pick up in person.
One of our trainers, Jessica, can do ground transport to NorCal, and sometimes SoCal.
