What about Robin Hobbs Farseer Trilogy and Tawny Man Trilogy? Characters (including the main character) can possess "the wit" and are able to bond with an animal and experience its senses. Also Bran from A Song of Ice and Fire by GRRM.

The Beast Master (tv series and movie) fits this quite nicely I believe.
