A well bred Golden is the best family dog ever. We have several and all of them adore children and get along well with other animals. We have one who when she wants to go out as we're going to open the door, she dashes to where our ancient Berger Picard cross likes to hang out in our media room, noses the old girl and takes her out to join her for a nose around the farm. Even if the media room door is closed, this Golden will open it if she knows the older dog is in there and she will open it to reach her and invite her to go along on the outing.
