Golden Retriever for a first-timer and potential SD

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

I am considering a Golden as a Service Dog prospect. I will be a first-time dog owner. Thoughts?

Anyone know of any good breeders in the midwestern US?

Maybe post this in the service dog section for more responses. I've seen a lot of golden retriever service dogs as well as standard poodles. I think finding the right breeder and trainer is very important
