I've got a few questions about a couple of different breeds and rather than wade through the spamverts that Google would serve up, I figure I'd turn to the Foo collective.
Looking at Labrador, Golden Retriever, German Shepard, and possibly either a Lab/Retriever or Lab/Poodle (Labradoodle) mix.
My son wants me to get a German (his buddy has two and he thinks they are neat), but my wife questions if my laid back, passive personality could handle one.
Primarily, I'm wondering about food consumption, exercise requirements, frequency of groomer/vet visits, and transporting them.
**EDIT** I'm seeking input on these breeds specifically, as they are the predominant ones when searching for organizations that train guide dogs.
