I did a search and didn't find anything. I am thinking of getting a golden this summer, but I am having trouble deciding between a male or female. I had a female golden years ago, she was loving at times but fairly independent. I have been told that females are sometimes easier to work in the field and handle, is this true? I know it probably depends on the breeding, personality, and how you raise and train the dog, just wanted to get others opinions. Thanks.
