Hello, I'm Dr. Deb. I'll do my best to help you today.
I can understand your concern for your Golden especially since you plan to breed her...although I know you'd be worried even if you weren't!
Weed B Gone and other herbicides of this nature might cause mild gastrointestinal signs if ingested while still wet but once they dry, no problems are expected. The pathways which cause plant death are not ones which affect our pets.
Of course, I'd probably lean towards a more natural product just to be environmentally friendly if you have one that's effective.
I hope this helps to reassure you. Deb
