|The energy level really depends on the lines, but one benefit that Goldens have is that they are TRUE PEOPLE PLEASERS!
Our last Golden, Teddy, was one of the marshmellow goldens. She was a dog shaped rug who was happy doing whatever. I've met many goldens who giant bouncy balls as well!
They are a dog, and they come with all sorts of doggie excitement. Teddy ate a water heater door when she was a puppy (a 2 foot square! -- apparently her myraid of chew toys weren't as exciting/delicious for her)
But they train very easily, they love their people like nobodies business, and they have such an infinate capacity for love, fun, and joy, that everyday they're with you is a gift (she's been gone for 5 years and i'm STILL weepy)
Easy, no, no dog is ever easy. But goldens are certainly a pleasure to own. After having Harv, the spaniel personafied, I can't imagine having a TRULY willful dog. Forget whether the dog is easy and soft, I'm too easy and soft!
