Welcome to our puppy information page. We breed quality, healthy, well socialized golden retriever puppies from health tested
parents that we show in AKC conformation shows and obedience trials. We breed for the preservation of healthy bloodlines. We perform health
clearances on our dogs to do everything in our power to ensure that the
offspring will not have genetic issues. We do not primarily breed for pets, but with competition in our breed being so competitive only a couple of
puppies from any litter are kept for showing, pets are available. 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 located in Garrison, Montana.

Please only contact us by E-mail AFTER reading our puppy information below. We have gone to great lengths to answer many questions and talk about
the purpose of our breeding program of 25 years. Please include your phone number in your e-mail. We do not breed our dogs solely to produce pets. We title our dogs in AKC events
and perform health testing on all of our breeding stock. Anyone who buys a puppy from us, regardless of the intended purpose benefits from all of the hard work we put into our dogs and puppies.
Our puppies are available only to homes seeking an indoor family pet who will not be just a dog, but a family member -- whether they are show dogs or pets.
Our puppies are whelped in my bedroom, and raised only inside our home, only by us. They are well socialized with children, bathed, blow dried, brushed and nails
trimmed weekly, and are very well rounded by the time they leave for their new families. They are crate trained, and are used to car trips in a
crate. The puppies are routinely dewormed, and receive their first core vaccinations.
We do ask the puppies be spayed/ neutered between 12 and 14 months of age, and not younger as munch research has shown more health benefits to waiting.

Our puppy buyers are highly invested in their puppies, and looking for a breeder who is dedicated to the breed, doing their best to produce the healthiest puppy
possible by breeding dogs from generations of health tested dogs. We are not the most expensive breeder to purchase a quality, well bred puppy from -- but we are
picky who we sell our dogs to. We do not typically reply to "one liner" e-mails. Plan on telling us about your home for dogs if you expect us to be interested in
selling you a puppy. Most of our puppies go to homes who "don't want a show dog," but want to be proud of their pet.
Pet quality puppies at 8 weeks of age are sold on a spay/neuter contract and AKC limited
registration are $3,000 on AKC Limited Registration and a Spay/Neuter contract. Adults and Older puppies started on training: We have many homes who are looking for older puppies or adults.
We occasionally puppies in training, click on our "Started Puppy And Trained Dog" page for information:Click HERE to see our puppies in training. Dogs with AKC limited registration can compete in any AKC event and junior showmanship events. Conformation events are
for breeding stock. * We only sell show/breeding quality dogs to homes that have titled and compete in events with their dogs,
in some venue.showing
at AKC, or International shows in conformation. . "Paying more later" to breed a pet quality dog, who has not been titled in some AKC venue,
and/or does not have the four minimum health clearances for breeding is never an option with us, nor any reputable breeder. All puppies leave with age appropriate
vaccinations and de-worming. We keep current on immunization protocols and follow the core vaccine protocol.

RESERVING A PUPPY:
There are many golden retrievers being bred, yet the availability of well bred goldens being bred with all of their health clearances is limited.
If you would like to purchase one our of golden retriever puppies, we welcome e-mails as an initial start of contact. We do not post our phone number on our website. A copy of our sales contract
and reservation form can be e-mailed to homes with litter information. Many people like to plan about 4 months ahead. It's not uncommon that puppies in our litters are reserved before the
litter is even born. We can really only plan for litters 4 months in advance. If you know roughly what your timeline is, your best bet is to contact us no sooner than 4 months prior.
How puppies are chosen:
How do we pick out which puppies go where? We match our puppies to their owners lifestyle and activity level as best we can,
so each home gets their "pick puppy." No home knows exactly which puppy they are getting
until AFTER the puppies are graded after 7 weeks of age. We welcome a list of
favorites from the photos we e-mail weekly to homes who have sent deposits. Show puppies are
chosen first, for homes who compete with their dogs in AKC events. The balance of puppies are paired with their families beginning with the 1st reservation down to
the last with their needs and preferences in mind. The owners either choose from a puppies we have matched with their
preferences of activity level, and other preferences or ask us to choose which puppy is best for them. Puppies can begin to be picked up no earlier than 8 weeks of age.
Puppies cannot be travel by air until 8 weeks of age.
We prefer homes visit us, our dogs, and how they are raised prior to or when it is time for their puppy or dogs to join them. For homes wanting
to fly with their puppy back to where they live, we fly frequently with our show dogs and offer transport
options at:our Puppy Shipping page.
take your puppy or dog on an airline here.
We do not sell to third parties, brokers, or dealers. We want to know who has our dogs, and where every one of our dogs are.

Contacting Us: Mattiaci Golden Retrievers
In lieu of a long "application," we prefer to learn about our homes if they call or e-mail, telling us about their history and homes for dogs on their own, in their
own words.Our "puppy questionnaire" and "application" is very simple:
- what state do you live in?
- what is your background in dogs?
- what kind of a home do you have for dogs?
- are you searching for a male, or a female?
- will you be picking up in person? Need Cargo shipping? Nanny flights possible to Seattle by us.
Inquiries that do not give us any information about what kind of a home they would provide for our puppies will not be acknowleged. Include en ough information about your home for dogs that I can decide whether or not I would want to sell you a dog or puppy. Our waiting list for puppies starts about 4 months in advance.
** Once our puppies are born, we become a "closed kennel" for the safety and health of our puppies. We have no visitation until after our puppies have been vaccinated right before they go to their new homes.
During covid we do not give tours or visits.
It's not our priority to provide you with a puppy. We breed for ourselves first. Our next priority is to match the best homes for our dogs. We have to have lifetime relationships with our buyers and are always available.
