Understanding Romanian Dogs & Their Quirky Ways

Learn Why & How Romanian Dogs are Different to British dogs and What this Means for You as an Adopter

Course Summary

A short mini course to help adopters of Romanian rescue dogs gain a better understanding of who their new family member is, why they are different to British dogs and what this may  mean for them as pet parents.

One of the most common things that can cause major problems for new or even existing adopters is not having any knowledge of how and why their Romanian family member is different.

Even very experienced dog guardians have regularly admitted to me that they didn't realise Romanian dogs were different and weren't given access to this information, which resulted in them struggling to know the best way to settle or help their new rescue dogs.

When experiencing problems with Romanian dogs, this information can be invaluable in approaching things in a slightly different way to take into account a Romanian Dog's Point of View.

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.

Great insight in our Rommies

Loved this course! I gained a lot of insight in the WHY of our dogs behaviours. A great course, in a great way, for a very decent price. Even while I'm Dutch, it was easy to follow! I'm really going to look for other great courses on this page!

Great bite size course

This is a fab curse for anyone who is thinking of adopting a free-ranging dog giving an insight into how and why they may be different from a pet companion dog. Would recommend, well worth the money.

Essential course for all adopters of Romanian dogs!

I not only recommend this course to all of my own clients with street dogs, I have also taken the course myself & can say it is an absolute must that adopters have this information at the beginning of their journey & new life with their dog. The information is fantastic, in depth but also easy to follow & will help you understand the sensitivities of these beautiful dogs. Trust me when I say that if you take the time to understand them, the bond you can achieve & the love they will give you is beyond measure. Meesh really knows what she is talking about, she is also very generous in her coaching group with the resources & support she provides.
