I have a WL and she have crazy ball drive, she could work till she passes out and she lives in apartment. She is couch potato in apartment but outside, she is unstoppable
She was never destructive in apartment, but first two months I had her puppy mind busy 5-10min when ever she woke up. Simple obedience commands, some nose-work or tugging (except when she was changing teeth), or ball chasing.
I didn't have to crate mine, but I work from home, so you should consider crate training for your new dog.
If you provide some physical and mental activity for your dog you will have a perfect pet
