An extensive collection of information & resources to support Rescue Organisations working with Romanian rescue dogs & their Adopters

Course Summary

There is no getting away from the fact that Romanian dogs are wired differently to British dogs and can present with some quite unique challenges both in terms of behaviour problems and responses to teaching approaches, which is why, following the success of my RR Pro Trainer Program, I wanted to create something specifically for Rescue Organisations to help them support adopters of their dogs.

As the founder and business owner of The DOG’s Point of View, I have been working with these dogs and their families for many years now and I am consistently taking on clients who have struggled to achieve successful outcomes with previous professionals they have hired, and more importantly have not always been given the best advice for these sensitive and often complex souls.  

The DOG's Point of View Pro's Course for Rescue Organisations aims to help anyone supporting adopters gain a deeper understanding of what a holistic approach to working with dogs looks like, because it really isn’t just about ‘training’ especially with Romanian & overseas dogs.

So within this program I hope to provide both information & helpful resources that will provide an understanding of the world from the Dog’s Point of View, in particular from our Romanian and foreign rescue dogs point of view, because they are different both in how they experience the world around them and respond to it.  It is for this reason that it's important as canine professionals advising adopters, to be aware that helping dogs overcome problems or challenges they may face in their new homes is very much an inside out approach that needs to take this into account.

I want to help Rescue organisations and their support personnel understand what is likely to be the best basic advice and guidance to give to adopters who are experiencing specific types of problems, but also help them be aware when incorrect or inappropriate advice for that dog is being given by training professionals or other well-meaning individuals because the damage this often results in can have catastrophic consequences for the dogs and their families, so I would love to support Rescue organisations in preventing this from happening.

So, I am excited to be launching this program with a view to reducing the incidences of this happening, save many dogs and their families from unnecessary stress, and in some cases heartbreak and misery, and minimize the risk as much as possible of problems arising and adoptions failing.

Anyone who runs or works in a rescue organisation that rehomes Romanian & Overseas rescue dogs and would like a better understanding of how you can best support your adopters with basic advice & guidance.  

No, this course in no way qualifies you as a trainer.  It will provide you with a deeper understanding of what is the correct basic advice you could give in certain problematic situations and what is not recommended.  It will provide you with an extensive bank of information and resources you can use with your adopters to support them, and a basic level of understanding on what it looks like to work through many of the challenges that come up for adopters of Romanian and foreign rescue dogs.

Amazing PRO COURSE...

Thank you so much for an amazing course full of knowledge, compassion and respect for these incredible dogs. Excellent delivery throughout making it both enjoyable and accessible. Would strongly recommend every rescue involved in Romanian and other overseas rescues completes this course...also reassures the support we are giving is going to support both the dog and guardian/owner enjoy their lives together to the fullest. Was so happy to see some meditation included, I'm sure some people think I'm exaggerating when I have previously advised doing this with their dogs present. Thanks again and much respect.

Meesh 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.
