Have a 3 year old golden. Of you get within petting distance, you are committed for at least an hour. Dog is 70 pounds of pure unadulterated love. And we still train him.
When I had my big black lab/golden retriever cross, I was often asked whether he was dangerous (his deep bark was threatening to solicitors at the front door). I told them only to small children because his fast moving wagging tail could knock them over!

My golden doesn’t bark. But same thing. Tail knocks everything over. Then the head has to get into position for a good pet and finally the paw rests itself on your arm. At that point you have him exactly where he wants you.
