|Depends on the retriever. I know some labs that honestly live with the wrong family, because they NEED to be working. Then there are others that probably would roll their eyes at you if you tried to pry them off the front porch/couch.
Chessies however are a whole different ballgame. They without a doubt, NEED a purpose. And they will harass you endlessly until you let them fulfill that purpose. If you start young, you can choose that purpose for them though and make life a bit easier for everyone involved. Of the ones I know, most do water retrieval or dock diving, and one actually does frisbee. All of them will literally do whatever their chosen job is until they drop, and if you don't let them do it they're total bears to be around.
So I would encourage Finn to choose a constructive hobby.
