Fed up of your pupper pinching your favourite slippers? Dog getting to your perfectly cooked meal before you even get a look in? Well, you’re in luck – because the guys at Channel 5 are on the hunt for Britain’s naughtiest dogs to appear on the upcoming series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly.
If you haven’t watched the show already (and if not, you should – it’s very entertaining!), expert handler Graeme Hall travels around the country helping exhausted dog owners fix their pet’s bad habits.
From those with violent and possessive traits, to the more affable pooches with endearing habits such as pinching food or play-nipping – Graeme has tricks up his sleeve for every issue, and it’s a heartwarming affair when the owner’s lives are changed for the better as a result of their dog’s newfound good behaviour.
And now, searching for new naughty or troubled pups to appear, the production team at Avalon Factual are in need of new owners for the show’s fifth season – with Graeme on hand to help those in need.
There are no age restrictions and no problem too big or small, so whether it’s your puppy who’s causing chaos or an older dog who seemingly can’t be taught new tricks, Graeme has a pretty impressive track record in helping.
Fans are, naturally, desperate to get themselves on the show, with hundreds of comments on Graeme’s Instagram saying that they’ll have “custard creams and tea at the ready” if he picks them, and “Dear God, please pick us! Our 9-month-old dachshund puppy is a demon”.
The show has grown in popularity over the past couple of years, with many tuning in to help find tips on training their ‘lockdown pups’. Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly was also nominated for a TV Choice Award in 2021.
The upcoming series is set to begin production soon, and those who feel like their dog could do with some expert guidance from the “Dogfather” himself can apply via email at email@example.com.
