Has anyone ever seen a Newfoundland trained as, or trained one to be a service dog for mobility issues?

I can gob- that!!!

I haven't, but I think they would be a great dog for it. As long as the human can put up with all the drooooool.

I haven't personally met these dogs but I did see a couple on the national breed club page and there is also a video of a Newf trained as a PSD on youtube.

This is the breed I'm considering among other larger breeds. By the way I'm training a PSD with some mobility tasks as well.
