Hi Lloyd well you could look at the Golden Retriever while they aren't really medium they aren't overly large and as the breed suggests they do retrieve things, they make good companions too! I had to laugh when you say not fat but muscly A fat dog is usually because some owners are way too kind and over treat/feed their dog! And as for lamping I haven't heard of a Golden Retriever doing this but can't see why they can't be trained to do this as well.
Dogs are really clever creatures HTH in some ways! And welcome to Df too

I think that, in the end, it depends on how much experience you have(what you can handle) and the training the dog gets.

Here's something I'd suggest you read before searching for a dog: Picking the Right Retriever

I can't post the link but if you go on wikipedia and look up "retriever" or go to google and search for retriever breeds you can find a page there that has information on retriever dogs, which includes a list of breeds for it.

Good luck.

(There are also websites/forums around dedicated to hunting/hunting dogs-I'd suggest you look on those websites too, you can find them through a search on google or a similar web search website)
