About Meesh Masters & 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 Human-Canine Coaching, Training & Behaviour Consultancy specialising in Romanian Rescue dogs.
My approach is to use fear free and reinforcement based techniques only together with other methods & products that complement that approach, such as Emotive Energy Balancing techniques, Bach flower Remedies and Homeopathic treatments.
My passion is to deepen the human-canine relationship and understanding by working on mind, body and behaviour as a whole helping people and their dogs live their best lives together.
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 approach with much better results.
Through the articles and information I have written on Romanian Rescue dogs, my business has naturally gravitated to helping these beautiful souls and their new families, and I now only work with Romanian Dogs.
I have been lucky enough to prevent adoptions failing, turn around what appeared to be hopeless situations and change both canine and human lives for the better, providing a much needed light at the end of the tunnel for clients when they reach out to me.
Helping adopters see the world from their Romanian Dogs Point of View and being able to give them a deeper understanding of who their dog is so they better understand how to resolve challenges is my absolute passion.

I have written and published two books (so far) both of which can be found on Amazon.
The first, Teaching Dogs Practical Life Skills - A Step by Step Guide & Workbook is a very practical teaching guide that you can pick up and go straight to the part you need. It includes many step by step training exercises 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.
Emotive Energy Balancing - Teaching & Communicating With Energy Awareness is my second book and is written 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 external 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, and attended many webinars by trainers at the top of their field including Suzanne Clothier, Grisha Stewart, Sarah Whitehead and Michael Shikashio to name but a few.
I am also a 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.
