Newfoundland dogs are often used in search and rescue work. They require a minimum of three years training before they can jump from moving transports and become a SAR dog. Their strength and ability to swim so well makes it easy for them to paddle to shore with a person. Many trainers say because of their nature at retrieving things, it's more like a game than work for these dogs.
