I think the first litter is more likely to give you the big blocky dog you want in terms of appearance.
I kind of like some of the dogs with the first breeder. Especially "Stash" who is a grandson of Hobo (Ch Summits Mr Bojangles OS) However this current litter(Kathy&Teddy) they have bred Kathy....before she is two years . Meaning she only has prelims on her hips!
Sorry but I have to disagree with this statement. It is a misconception. "Field" Goldens are not all high energy and not all dogs shown in breed are clam and easier to live with. Some of the highest energy dogs I have ever met were show dogs, and I personally know many calm easy to live with "field" Goldens. All the better performance dogs have very definitive "on/off" switches. All Goldens, especially when young, have LOTS of energy and need LOTS of exercise.One thing to keep in mind is that your "field" type goldens tend to have high energy drives and need a LOT of exercise and activity to keep them mentally stimulated. They tend to be smaller and not at all like those Goldens that are now being shown in breed with the "blocky" heads. If you prefer a dog that is calmer at home and easier to live with I would steer away from the field Goldens.
It all depends upon what your preferences are and how much time you have to devote to tiring your pup with activities.
