I live right next door to you in Franklin!
I have a 15 month old, he comes from confirmation show lines as compared to the field lines. The field lines tend to be more active.
I was scared about the same thing about Brady being too active. He plays a lot with the kids in the yard, gets a lot of his excercise that way, and I can always tell when his "golden retriever cousin" Wallace comes to play, because in the evening he is much quieter.
I sign him up for courses occasionally at MasterPeace in Franklin, and the lessons also keep him busy and stimulated. They also have play groups there.
If you walk that much already, I don't get to walk Brady as much as I should, and along with keeping his mind active, and playtime in the yard you should be okay.
We do have some bad days, but as he gets older we are having a lot of good ones. Oh, by the way, as active as Goldens are, they are also the best couch potato snugglers.
