Romanian Rescue Adopters Coaching Group

An extensive collection of information & courses with Qualified Trainer Support for Romanian Rescue Adopters

Welcome to the Romanian Rescue Community

A place for adopters of Romanian and Foreign rescue dogs to have access to 100s of articles, step by step teaching guides & training plans, online courses, workshops, webinars and a whole community of supportive members, PLUS the option to join regular group calls for support.

I'm super excited to see you here, to tell you all about The Adopters Coaching Group! Have a read through this page, watch the video where I share a sneak peak inside the group with you and if you have any questions, please get in touch via the Support Page here on the website.

This is not your run of the mill 'Dog Training' portal, it is also a Holistic Human-Canine Coaching Centre. Of course there are solutions to your dog training and behaviour challenges but that's only the beginning. Through my work with Romanian dogs and learning how different they are to our British dogs, my journey as a dog 'trainer' has evolved into so much more.

The Romanian dogs and their unique characters have taught me to watch more closely, look more deeply and listen more carefully because the way they see & respond to the world is so instinctive and deeply rooted in, what I believe is something that is closer to the true nature of a dog.

This deeper understanding of Romanian dogs means I know that conventional training approaches don't always work. Many trainers don't have experience of working with these dogs and their unique perspective on the world. I have enjoyed hearing how lots of members have had wonderful 'Aha' moments since joining the group and are learning how to work through challenges in a way that makes sense to their dogs, because it's not JUST about training.

REACTIVITY TOWARD VISITORS
Before I found Meesh and her newly formed community group back in November 2019, I was stressed, upset and even scared about the issues my lovely Rommie boy had with visitors. I felt isolated and alone trying to deal and cope with the issues. I have first-hand experience of using the ”wrong” trainer and wasted a year of valuable training time battling with a trainer who was only doing more damage to my already frightened little boy. When Meesh came into our lives our world changed. I can assure you Meesh is the “right” trainer for these dogs and they all deserve her. She has a total understanding of their needs and how training should be structured to achieve the desired results or at least improve the situation. She is honest and doesn’t make you believe that the behaviour will change in the first session (this is what I was told by the previous trainer!) but she will help you to understand how to work with your dog in a step by step, structured way and help them learn to cope in a more positive way with our human world. The training resources are just so valuable and being part of a community with shared challenges has been wonderfully supportive and helpful. I would recommend anyone who has a Romanian dog to join this group.  I dread to think where we would be if we hadn’t met Meesh and I hope that every adopter and Romanian dog who needs her, finds her in time and has the amazing benefits and experiences from this fantastic community she has created.

NEW ADOPTER
I can't remember exactly how I found Meesh but I am SO happy that I did as following her advice has been invaluable!! I was lucky to have found her before my 5 month old puppy, Dobby, arrived, as it gave me time to read a lot of information and get to understand Romanian dogs before he even got here! I followed her new adopters course, as well as some other courses, and I know they helped to strengthen the bond between Dobby and I and establish trust. She provides so much knowledge and in so much detail to really help you understand what is going on for them and how best to help them and it's clear how much she loves dogs and truly wants to help! I also love that she takes a holistic approach and takes everything into consideration when offering advice and also encourages you to look at the bigger picture and do the same to consider what else could be going on to contribute to your pup's behaviour, rather than focusing just on the problem behaviour itself.  Meesh is always SO supportive, positive, non judgemental and kind and I would wholeheartedly recommend her and her platform to anyone who is really wanting to understand and help their foreign rescue ex street dogs. Thank you Meesh from the bottom of my heart, you have helped me and Dobby SO much and I will forever be grateful! Xxx

FEAR OF STRANGERS & REACTIVITY ON WALKS
Having adopted a Romanian rescue dog 10 weeks ago, I was looking for information on how to work with them and was lucky enough to come across Meesh Masters’ site (The Dog’s Point of View). Although I have had rescue dogs in the past, Monty was different. He was born in a rescue shelter in Romania and came over to the UK when he was six-months-old. Since then, he has been adopted and handed back 3 times for various reasons. This is his 4th home and he is still not 2 years-old. Monty was fearful of everything (noises, people, household appliances) when he first arrived, and I was at a bit of a loss. The advice and information on Meesh’s site has been invaluable and over the past weeks, I have gained a much greater understanding of how to work with Monty in helping him manage his behaviours and build his confidence. After contacting Meesh for information, I signed up as a Gold Member and have already received lots of really helpful, personalised advice on what I can do specifically to help Monty manage his wariness around strangers in the street. I can already see a huge difference in his behaviour. I would definitely recommend her to anyone- not only those with Romanian dogs.

NEW ADOPTER + REACTIVITY ON WALKS & TOWARDS VISITORS
Out of all the dog trainers I could have chosen when scrolling the net in April 2020 for info on Romanian dogs I am so, so grateful I stumbled across Meesh Masters. We would have made so many mistakes without her (and we have had a UK rescue reactive dog before). We were fortunate enough to have watched The ‘Living with Romanian Dogs’ and ‘Set yourself up for a successful adoption’ webinars before the first of two reserved Rommie dogs ‘Amber’ arrived. Although if I’m honest it scared us a little, it did set us up for success – we had a plan. Amber arrived as a typical fearful and reactive Rommie street dog, yet with Meesh’s clear instruction we made her world small, went ever so slowly, provided lots of enrichment and have had nothing but joy watching her and our other Rommie dog ‘Pan’ blossom. I have never looked back and am still a member of the coaching group, which I continually learn from. Meesh is such a generous person and her enthusiasm in sharing her knowledge and years of experience to make a better life for these dogs (and us adopters) shines through, plus the network is a super supportive and kind place to be – Can’t recommend enough.

I Can't Wait to See You in There!

This is a community I am passionate about building and have been for a long time.

In a world where 'perfection' is rammed down our throats at every opportunity, across all forms of media, I want to create a safe space where we can learn, grow, share and support each other.  I am committed to being a student of dogs and want you to benefit from everything I learn as I learn it, to enable us all to have the most amazing relationships, lives and experiences with our dogs.   

When would now be a great time to join the other members already seeing better connections with their dogs, improved responses on walks, reduced reactivity, fearful dogs with more confidence and regular moments of 'Wow, I can't believe how far we've come'  

Are You Ready for That?

All The Dog's Point of View teaching guides, advice and recommendations follow the latest scientifically proven fear free methods.
 I and any members of my team are committed to further study and continued professional development.

Michelle Masters

Meesh Masters is the founder and business owner at The Dog's Point of View and specialises in working with Romanian Rescue dogs and providing educational resources for their adopters via remote one to one consultations, home study courses, seminars, training programs and her popular Adopters Coaching Group

After becoming involved with Romanian Rescue dogs in 2015, both as a support advisor to new adopters and a fosterer herself, she was led to look deeper into the thinking, feeling, emotional depths of these dogs when things began feeling different about them.

She soon realised how the Romanian dogs were different to British born dogs, how their genetics and bloodline, being from street dogs, meant they seemed to be more in tune with their instinctive nature's. She went on to learn that she needed to adjust the ways she interacted with and worked with these dogs, to accommodate their more streetwise and cautious characteristics. It became very evident that these dogs responded differently to 'training' in the conventional sense at times.

And so it became her passion to share everything she was learning, and is still learning, about the Romanian Dog's Point of View with as many adopters as possible. Today she is Patron of two Romanian Rescue Charities and advisor to various rescue organisations. Her entire business focuses solely on supporting and working with adopters of predominantly Romanian but also other European street dogs.
