Your dog is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
I don't hunt, or do field trials. I would love to train to if I had the time. I love the field type goldens though. My Teddi is that type and I got her with out knowing there was a difference. I love her. I like all the breeder links to check out.
If it is just arthritis, I am sure there is a lot of things you can do to help him get stronger and better. Joint supplements, salmon oil, NSAIDs, all can improve the pain. I would not worry too much about putting a 9 yr old dog on something, we all need help as we age. One NSAID may last a few days, you may not have to administer daily. I am sure your vet has given you advice.
