Reactive to Rebalanced Roadmap Program (Self Study)

Lifetime Access to a 12 week step by step holistic program to help you & your dogs that overreact on walks, live your best life together.

Program Overview 

Over-Reactive behaviour on walks is the number one problem Adopters of Romanian & Overseas Rescue dogs ask for my help with, and whilst I would love to be able to work with everyone individually, there simply isn't enough of me to go round!

Which is why I created this program!  The RTR program provides you with the complete framework of how I work with clients in the format of a structured holistic online program.

You can work through the program material at your own pace. No having to trek to classes, feeling anxious or awkward about how your dog might behave or putting your dog into situations they can't cope with yet.

Fearful and over reactive behaviour will not go away on it's own.  The fact that it is even happening confirms that something is not quite right for your dog at this time.

👈 👈 Any number of these possible contributing factors you see in this diagram, could be affecting your dogs behaviour, which is why so many people struggle to see progress.

'Training' only works on the observable behaviour, but if you don't address what's driving or causing the behaviour, then all the 'training' in the world will only ever have limited success.
This includes looking at how WE at the human end of the lead impact on our dog's behaviour by the things we do (or don't do!)

Living with a dog that exhibits excessive reactions to certain 'triggers' is one of the hardest behaviours to deal with and live with. You find yourself feeling stressed, embarrassed and increasingly reluctant to walk your dog, which I'm sure was one of the primary pleasures you were looking forward to when you got them!

Of course it's not their fault, they're not 'doing it on purpose' they can't help it. They are simply behaving as a result of an instinctive emotional & behavioural response, but we can help them by ensuring we take a holistic approach to understanding, addressing and supporting our dogs in ALL areas of life.

In the Reactive to Rebalanced Roadmap for Romanian Rescue Dogs you will be walked through the five core stages that will teach you how to understand your dog, communicate effectively with them, establish skills and techniques that will improve your walks and help you navigate tricky situations from the get go.

By the time you complete your program you will have a clear progress plan to help you and your dog feel more relaxed, know how to navigate your dogs over-reactive behaviour with ease and understand exactly what you need to do to continue to see positive changes going forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

This program is for you if you have a dog that overreacts to certain things out and about on walks.  If your dog sometimes gets pretty animated (barking, lunging, air snapping) when they see other dogs, people, cyclists, joggers, wildlife etc then this program will help you create a holistic progress plan so you can both move forward to living your best life together.  

The program material is delivered in a variety of formats to suit different learning styles.  There are short, easy to digest video explanations with written scripts to accompany them, video demonstrations of exercises as well as numerous downloadable PDF teaching guides, handouts, helpful worksheets and workbooks.

The course is designed to take 15 weeks in total, with 12 weeks of modules followed by three break/practice weeks. However, you and your dog are always free to work through the material at your own pace. The modules will be available on a weekly basis, allowing you to work on it according to your schedule and other commitments. Every dog develops differently, so how quickly you see results will depend on what your dog requires and how much time you are able to dedicate to practicing

How does forever sound? You get lifetime access to the program and all it's contents, INCLUDING all additional units that will be added as the program evolves.

We know how overwhelming it can feel when you have a dog that overreacts to triggers in the environment, and we know there can be a lot to learn as you work through the program, but we've got you covered!  

You can ask questions on the units as you work through the program and one of the DOGS POV team will get back to you.

Michelle Masters

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.
