Thank you everyone for the wonderful tips and amazing insights!

I will look more into programs and see what I can do, I will also take into consideration everything you all have listed as important when choosing a puppy to train.

I really appreciate the warm welcome and fast responses, I hope to interact with you all more in the future! :paw:

I think I'd go for the poodle over the golden because though goldens are very good in obedience they favor pattern training which I'm not fond of and I might get away with more of the style of training I'm used to with a poodle.

Kirsten, can you say more about pattern training vs style training?
