Mini Workshop for Dogs That Over React to Visitors

2 Hour Workshop (Recording) + Workbook + Supporting Resources

Workshop Summary

The Visitors are Coming! The Visitors are Coming! 
Many Romanian dogs are not comfortable with strangers or visitors to the home, it can be part of their instinctive natures to be suspicious of things that are unfamiliar to them, including people, and it is one of the top two problems I get contacted by adopters for help with. It really isn't as simple as tossing out a few treats, there can be many contributing factors that, if you're not at the very least aware of, can mean you might be setting your dog up to perpetuate their fear or dislike of strangers, every time someone comes to your house.

This is why many adopters find themselves only ever making limited progress with this challenging situation.  

Why would this workshop/mini course be perfect for you?  
Because this particular problem is PERFECT for online learning!

Even if you lived next door to me, I wouldn’t work in person with you to begin with, because your dog would instantly feel unsafe, anxious and on edge the moment I stepped in your home.  This means it would be hard for us to make progress during our consultations.  

So, let's put the foundations in place and have a clear plan of action before your visitors even start coming.  In fact, you absolutely SHOULDN'T wait until your visitors come to do this training!  Get ahead of the problem and set your dog up to succeed through the next stages.    

I want you to leave this workshop with a generic training plan that will ensure your dog can remain calm and relaxed in the house when visitors are present and help you set them up to start having positive visitor experiences. Until they can do that, no amount of 'training' will help them learn to feel more comfortable around strangers and visitors and you could find yourself going round in circles with this problem for months (even years)    

So, Are you In?  Are you ready to get proactive on your dog’s behalf? 😊

Whilst this workshop can't cover all potential issues or variables that need to be considered when working with a dog that is uncomfortable with guests, it will provide you with a good foundation of understanding and the tools and knowledge to start preventing that perpetuation of negative experiences for your dogs.

The workshop is of course in no way a substitute for 121 professional assistance, but I fully appreciate that finances can sometimes prevent adopters from getting the help they need, and this workshop is my way of making sure everyone is able to get at least basic guidance and support and know what NOT to do.

Your Mini workshop also includes a 30 page PDF workbook you can download as well a section of resources that provide further support & compliment the information shared during the workshop.

Down to earth and common-sense guidance

Meesh explains things in a really understandable way that makes complete sense. I had several ah-ha moments. Meesh is able to break it down and make it seem less daunting and more achievable. Thank you.

Meesh Masters is the founder and business owner at The Dog's Point of View and specialises in working with Romanian & Overseas Rescue dogs, providing educational resources for their adopters via remote one to one consultations, home study courses, webinars, training programs and her popular Adopters Coaching Group - The number one resource anywhere on the internet for Romanian and Overseas rescue dog information and support.

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, that their genetics and bloodline, being from street dogs and dogs that had evolved through more natural selection, 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 instinctive 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, Cloud K9 Rescue and Annie's Trust, she is also advisor to various other rescue organisations. She runs a course for qualified trainers, The Romanian Rescue Pro Trainers program, to help other canine professionals understand more about working with Romanian & foreign rescue dogs and their families, as many of them can be quite complex compared to working with British dogs.  She has also launched an invaluable education & resource program for rescue organisations rehoming Romanian & Eastern European dogs, to help them & their volunteers to understand how to correctly support their adopters if they encounter basic problems. 

Meesh is also now a certified Dynamic Dog Practitioner which qualifies her to complete detailed assessments of dogs in the areas of biomechanics, gait, movement & posture to determine whether there are any potential pain or discomfort issues that could be contributing to behaviour.  This is an invaluable qualification to have given that her entire business focuses solely on supporting and working with adopters and canine professionals of predominantly Romanian but also other European street, rescue & shelter dogs.  With the poor start many of these dogs have in life, along with the potential for them to have sustained untreated injuries, abuse and trauma prior to adoption, being able to assess for pain in a totally hands off, non-intrusive way is often the only way they can be assessed.
