Experienced Dog Behaviourist in Chichester, Hampshire
If you’re looking for a dog behaviourist in Chichester, you’ve come to the right place.
Hello and welcome, I’m Ian Mackay, a certified expert in dog training and behaviour. I specialize in helping reactive and even aggressive dogs. I’m located near Chichester, Hampshire in the UK, and my methods revolve around the idea of ‘dog listening’. Basically, it means understanding that there’s always a reason behind a dog’s actions. Once we get that, we can come up with strategies to manage their behaviour.
Reactivity can show up in different ways and intensities. It might be something as simple as your dog getting super excited when the doorbell rings. Or it could escalate to them randomly attacking another dog or breed for no reason.
Besides reactivity, dogs can have all sorts of other behaviour problems. Leash pulling, separation anxiety, and even destroying furniture are common issues. Excessive barking also falls under the umbrella of reactivity, which can make living with your furry friend a real challenge.
Just imagine being constantly dragged around by your dog when all you want is a nice walk. It’s seriously stressful. And then there’s the constant worry about what kind of mess you’ll come home to. You can never predict when your dog will go berserk. Plus, it’s not fun when other dog owners and non-owners give you judgmental looks like you’ve failed at training your dog. It’s like you’re the bad guy in the neighbourhood.
But help is at hand. If you are looking for a Dog Behaviourist in Chichester, and serving the Hampshire area, do contact me to discuss how we can help.

Let me tell you about one of my clients, Vasco the Estrela Mountain Dog. He used to get really worked up whenever his owner’s doorbell rang.
