Hello! DH and I are researching dog breeds, and I found this site in my internet searching. I'd like to hear about experiences raising Goldens and learn more about their needs.

More about us: I am stay at home and my husband works. We own our own home on about an acre in the country. We both were raised with dogs, but this will be our first one (we're both in our late 30's, no kids).

My biggest concern is exercise, and what all of the books say "moderate" means. We walk for 1.5 miles every day, and I'm home to entertain/walk as well during the day. My MIL has had Goldens for years, and they (the people in the home) are even less active than we are.

Any advice would be appreciated!
