    I found this video when looking to see how well a newf would handle being a service dog, my fiancee ((wedding day planned in June 2012)) is disabled with lower back and nerve damage. This video was beautiful, we are looking to get two newfs in the next year. Something we have been planning for many years now. Max is a beautiful dog, It is so sad to hear you lost him, but this video has answered some basic questions on trainablitly. Thank you both for sharing.

    I cried watching this, because I too have anxiety disorder. I don’t leave the house without my boyfriend. I would love it if I could have a dog that is allowed to go into grocery stores.

    God Bless you and Max.. this is an amazing, beautiful Newfie. So very sorry to hear that Max has passed. I have 2 Newfies, a 2 yr old female, Mya. And Murphy, a 14 week old boy. I would love to have him become a therapy dog. Any suggestions on where and when to start?

    RIP my beautiful, perfect newfie. You will always be remembered and loved. Max passed away from Canine Dilated Cardiomyopathy on the 7 May 2011. He waited long enough to meet my gorgeous son. Have a wonderful time over beyond the rainbow with a strong heart and plenty of energy to play.

    I am sure that there have been dirtier things on those tables than a dogs paw.

    Big deal about the dog walking on the table man how many birds shit on it daily.

    Curious to know why you allow him to walk up on top of tables, especially in a public place and where people eat? In the US that would be highly frowned upon, well, just not done.

    These dogs are truly amazing. I had a Newfie for 13 years, been without him for 2, and am 4 weeks away from getting another one. They are awesome.

    I didn’t know we could get service dogs, I am not sure if we can get them in Canada..
    I’d love to have one. Our large dogs. A rotti and rotty shepherd cross are like your dog in many ways. I am extreamly proud of you. You have given me hope. I didn’t know people could have a service dog, for some reason I figured people wouldn’t consider problems like ours real and tell us service dogs couldnt be used. Info is power and your giving us great info, that can help us help ourselves

    Aw, he’s such a cutie. I’m always glad when dogs other than poodles and labs are seen doing these jobs, they get too much publicity as it is.
    Beautiful vid, and the music brings a tear to my eye.

    This is very inspiring. I’m training a border collie to be my PSD soon. i’m going to make a series of videos about training/public access. I live in a small town in the south (in the US) so i’ll be just about the only one in my town with a service dog at all, and I have a feeling i’ll have some trouble being let in some places! But i’m going to be video taping it all as an example of how to explain to a business owner about PSDs and how they are just like any other service dog.

    This is absolutely inspiring. This literally brought a tear to my eye. I am physically disabled and know the joy, freedom, and independence that service dogs can bring to life. I commend this woman and Max for sharing their beautiful teamwork, journey, and message that there is hope for everyone.

    Hi, I have physical and cognitive disabilities. I trained my own service dogs. (My first was 10 years ago, then a few years later for my second guy.) Did you train Max yourself, with a professional trainer, or is he a program dog? I did train one “intelligent disobedience” skill: alerting me to the stove timer going off, even if I am asleep, ignore, push away, reprimand, etc., because of memory impairment. If you trained Max, I’d love to swap training stories. R U a member of IAADP?

    Thank you for sharing My newfoundlands name is Ella and I have M.S. and she has come to help whenever I fall(pulled me) The only that I have taught her is the word “help” when I need help getting up she lets me use her for support.
    The best dog ever!!

    wow! what an amazing dog:) he is so big, like a giant teddy bear. Was he your dog and you trained him to become a service dog, or did you get his specifically as a service dog?
