Welcome to Iron Range Goldens, owned by Luke and Jessica Matheson. We are located in a small town of Bovey, Minnesota. We breed quality Golden Retrievers! Here at Iron Range Goldens, we start our puppies off right by using a program called the Super Dog . We believe early neurological stimulation exercises have important and lasting effects on our puppies. Our dogs have OFA testing and are also tested for Progressive Retinal Atrophy or PRA-prcd, Golden Retriever PRA GR-PRA1 & GR-PRA2, Muscular Dystrophy, Degenerative Myelopathy, Ichthyosis 1 & 2 and Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis.
What Pet Owners Say
"My husband and I have always dreamt of having a golden and the Matheson's of Iron Range made our dream not only a reality but a truly amazing and interactive experience from start to finish! From the moment we put in our deposit we were updated on our litter every step of the way! As soon as pups were born we got weekly photo updates and got to meet our pup in person at about 5 weeks. The Matheson's have a beautiful property and take such good care of the puppies and their own dogs! We love our Ludo!"
“We could not have asked for a better breeder. Jessica was SO great a communicating. We got updates at least once a week with pictures and videos. They played desensitization music for the puppies to get them used to all sorts of noises and sounds, introduced them to the crate & gave recommendations for food, brushes bed ect. The amount of research, love and care that goes into their breeding is unmatched! We are so happy we got our puppy from them & have had nothing but compliments on his temperament so far! We recommend them to all our friends and family!!"
“We are happy we found Iron Range Goldens! Jessica was amazing keeping us updated with lots of pictures as well as letting us know how our guy was doing. Our family couldn't have asked for a better or more beautiful dog! Our Otis has the most amazing personality and soul. He is very gentle and very intuitive to how people are feeling. He passed his basic obedience and is now heading for his cgc title. He has shown perfect qualities to being a service dog for our son who is autistic, we have been training him to perform tasks that will help our son! He learns so fast it's amazing!"
