About The Dog's Point of View

Hi, My name is Meesh Masters and welcome to The Dog's Point of View website.  The focus of my work as a canine professional is Holistic Dog Training & Behaviour Services along with products that complement that approach such as emotive energy balancing techniques, Bach flower specially mixed remedies and Homeopathic treatments. My passion is to deepen the human-canine bond by working on mind, body and behaviour as a whole.

All relationships take work, patience and commitment and the relationship with your dog is no different. Your dog is a thinking, feeling emotional being, just like you but different and as such sometimes our humanistic approach to problems with our canine family members can create confusion, stress and frustration for everyone involved.
 
One of the most common reasons people experience training & behaviour problems with their canine family members is because of miscommunications and misunderstandings. My aim is to bridge that communication gap and help people understand their dogs better and help dogs understand their people better.
 
My approach is to work with empathy, compassion and understanding toward both the canine and human family members, addressing not only what behaviour is being shown on the outside, but also what emotions and physiological challenges are being experienced on the inside. By addressing all three aspects of mind, body and behaviour we are much more likely to achieve long lasting results because each one has a profound effect on the other.
 
I have been lucky enough to have lived with all shapes and sizes of dogs over the last 30 years (and all the different problems they had) and worked with many more as a teacher & behaviour consultant for the last 15 years.  I currently share my life with Sky my Border Collie, a very happy go lucky girl, friends with everyone & an absolute delight to live with and teach and Tramp who is a Romanian Rescue Dog (I am a failed foster parent!) who has been a lot more challenging on the training front, but is a wonderfully funny and loving boy.  
 
So remember, us professionals have challenges with our dogs too... because they're not robots and have their own likes & dislikes, stresses and emotions to work through just like us.  
 

My Work with Romanian Rescue Dogs

After becoming involved with Romanian Rescue dogs in 2015, both as a support advisor to new adopters and a fosterer myself, I was led to look deeper into the thinking, feeling, emotional depths of the dogs we spend our lives with.  I began to realise 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 more in tune with their instinctive nature's.  I had to learn and adjust the ways I 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 I found myself altering my teaching methods with much better results. 

Through the articles and information I have written on Romanian Rescue dogs, I have worked with many  adopters and their new family members, helping them to understand the nature of Rommies better and be able to help them integrate into their new way of life with as little stress as possible for everyone involved. 

My Books

I have written and published two books (so far) both of which can be found on Amazon.  The first is a very practical teaching guide with step by step help and lots of information and guidance on how to develop a stronger bond with your dog and work through any challenges you may be experiencing.

The second is a book with a more holistic approach to the relationship we share with our dogs.  Written with my dear friend and colleague, Janeen Warman of Human Hound Healing, this book complements my first book perfectly.  It's not enough to simply address external behaviour when there are so many other aspects that could be affecting that behaviour.

My Experience & Qualifications

I have diplomas in Intermediate & Advanced Canine Psychology from the Animal Care College (both with distinctions) and I am a proud member of the Pet Professional Guild British Isles.  I also have a diploma in Life Coaching, because being able to connect with the human half of the partnership is equally important to me as connecting with the canine half.  

I am passionate about continuing my education, and possibly a little addicted to studying! I have completed numerous additional courses over recent years including Dr Ian Dunbar's Sirius Training & Reactive Dog Workshop, Master Practitioner in both Human & Animal Reiki and I am currently working to complete my Holistic & Homeopath qualifications to be registered as a certified Holistic consultant together with a diploma in animal bereavement counselling.

I am dedicated to continued learning in this ever changing world of Canine Behaviour & Psychology and I will continue to study and update my education, in order to provide the best possible service to both my human and canine clients.
