I'm truly in awe over the Italian Water Rescue Dogs and quite frankly you feel like you haven't accomplished enough after going through the NCA Water Rescue Work training in the U.S. after watching these videos. It's quite a feat to have worked and trained with your dog for over 3 years in order to become an Italian rescue dog, and I can believe that your bond can only become deeper and more personal after achieving that level of training like the gentleman said in the video. Cheers to a breed that is courageous, gentle, loving, and devoted! I have to laugh because as I was writing this Foyle brought in my grocery list from the kitchen counter. See, they always want to take care of you. Nice, but it is a little wet! You haven't had a dog until you've had a Newfoundland!
