Any idea why these seem so few and far between? Generally at all the demonstrations I've seen (admittedly at general dog shows and the like, just local things) its always labs and spaniels, more so spaniels. Don't think I have ever seen a golden retriever at work. Wondered if there is a particular reason for this? I'm quite keen to get into the working side with them eventually but looking around for working pups it seems most are attempts at dual purpose, seemingly more heavily weighted on the show side or I might just be looking in completely the wrong places..! I've even looked for books and reading materials targeted towards retrievers and they seem very hard to find, even for labs but I feel like I come across a lot for spaniels. But yes, wondered if anyone knew much about why they seem lacking in number and where I should be looking to see some lovely working goldens?
