About The Dog's Point of View
Hi, My name is Meesh Masters and welcome to my website. Having 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 trainer & behaviour consultant for the last 15 years, it is my passion to help pet dog guardians with their training and behaviour challenges around the home and on walks. Every human canine relationship is different, the expectations, the lifestyle and the needs of both sides of the partnership.
My work is about helping you to understand each other better, by teaching you how your dog interprets the world around them, hence the name, The Dog's Point of View. By learning how your dog interprets and responds to situations and human behaviour, I can help you learn to communicate more effectively, which in turn enables you to teach them more easily and effectively, with long lasting results.
I am currently the proud guardian of 2 dogs, Sky is my Border Collie, a very happy go lucky girl, an absolute delight to live with and train, and Tramp 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 trainers 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.
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.
I have diploma's 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 toward BAT Certification (Behavioural Adjustment Training) with Grisha Stewart & qualifying as a companion animal bereavement counsellor.
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.
