|Unfortunately, what you need is a knowledgeable, experienced person who can see what's going on between your two digs and assess it objectively. This is not about "a psychologist for your dog." It's about being sure your dogs are safe together, or at least will be once the pup has matured, and whether it not your pup is going to mature into a dog whom you can train as a service dog. You obviously don't want to invest all that time and effort in a dog who cannot do what you need; it would be even worse in some ways to give up on a dog who really is a good prospect, and start over.
There's nothing about the shepherd breed that makes them poor prospects inherently, and nothing that guarantees that a Golden would be better just because he's a Golden. There's a good chance you're dealing with adolescent attitude and energy in a dog that isn't getting quite enough exercise, but someone with experience needs to be able to see what's really happening.
