Yeah a Lab or Golden would probably work well. Not field bred per se but more working/companion bred.

That is all. Just be sure to get a yellow one so I won't be as tempted to steal it from you. ^^

Standard poodle (no size limit you said!) or golden spring to mind. Goldens can be clingy and a bit nervy in my experience, but you should be able to find one from a good breeder that isn't like that.

Golden! They're silly and fun, and a good one is athletic, drivey, and intense without a tendency towards reactivity.

Oooooooo! I totally vote Standard Poodle.

ETA: What about a field spaniel? Or Boykin Spaniel. I like those because their names are fun to say. Boooooykin. Just kidding, they are pretty cool dogs too.

I really like both Goldens and Labs. I think if I went with a lab I would probably just go through rescue, there are always so many adolescent labs in rescue! Goldens I love (there is a local obedience golden with his OTCH+other things that I would take in a heartbeat!), and would absolutely own. The idea of trying to find a breeder in such a popular breed seems so daunting (and I'm lazy). I know of one breeder of working goldens that I absolutely love, though I feel like I'm not the caliber of owner that they work with. Who knows, it's hypothetical!

I don't want a Standard Poodle :/ I love their personalities and smarts but seriously, I don't want to deal with the health issues. I'd be such a nutcase thinking they were dying every other day.

I freaking adore Brittanys! I love their size, and all the ones I've met are on the quieter side, and they have tons of energy! Are they normally ball/water dogs?
