Storyline

In the Netflix family comedy series The Healing Powers of Dude, 11-year-old Noah Ferris (Jace Chapman) is struggling with a social anxiety disorder that can make the simplest everyday activities feel like he's drowning in quicksand. But after years of homeschooling, Noah bravely decides that he wants to give middle school a chance and perhaps even make some friends he's not related to. To help him navigate his new environment, his parents (Tom Everett Scott and Larisa Oleynik) get Noah a scruffy, high-energy emotional support dog called Dude (Steve Zahn). While Dude's a novice with a short attention span and a distracting obsession with treats, what he lacks in experience, he makes up for in charm, spunk and wanting the best for Noah. If this unlikely pair can find a way to overcome their differences and work together, they may just survive everything from wisecracking pre-teens to a cat-obsessed school principal and make it through the school year. Created by Sam Littenberg-Weisberg ...

Fun show but inaccurate
18 January 2020 | by spcbll1See all my reviews

So I do love the show but it is not accurate for emotional support/therapy vs service animal. The dog in the show is emotional support. Those type animals are not allowed in the places they show in it. He would not be able to have the dog in class and the dog wouldn't be allowed in school unless it was well trained.

I get they needed the show to be a specific way and funny. But we have had to deal with a ton of hurdles because people don't know the difference between the 2.
