I am also looking specifically for OB champs and lineages for her. My friend wants a Golden specifically for a OB and a UDX or above. She is a good OB owner-trainer, understands sensitive, drivey dogs through her Am Cocker who is very bird driven, and has several OB mentors. She would however like a harder Golden. I had one of these, but he was more of a field type and BYB unfortunately.
She has owned Dobermans, GSDs, Am Cockers, Giant Schnauzers and worked extensively fostering and placing various breeds dogs and puppies, so she has a lot of breed knowledge. She is interested in OB lines. I am also interested in OB lines myself, although just a novice, but I prefer a fieldy type, that's what I am used to. She understand positive reinforcement negative punishment training, more traditional training for proofing, as well as training through drive (not Behan style).
