​Channel 5 Is Looking For More Naughty Dogs To Feature In Show

Channel 5 is on the lookout for more naughty dogs to feature in the third series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly, with casting now underway.

The show sees master dog trainer Graeme Hall find 'long-lasting solutions for dogs with issues', whether it's an over-protective pooch that won't let anyone near the baby or a greedy pet that's known to steal sausages.

After the success of the first two series, a third is now in the works - which means your unruly four-legged friends are needed.

Avalon Factual, the production company behind the show, confirmed to LADbible that casting for season three is now underway and that the team were on the hunt for Britain's naughtiest dogs once more.

The company said it is currently inviting dog owners to apply to take part in the programme to 'receive Graeme's expert advice', urging people to get in touch via email or phone.

"If you feel your dog could benefit from Graeme's help or you'd just simply like to know more about the show then please contact the team on [email protected] or call 020 7598 7365," Avalon Factual said.

The company also stressed that producers are operating a 'Covid-19 safe production', adding: "We will be following all government guidelines and will adapt our filming protocols in line with those."

In previous episodes, Graeme 'The Dogfather' Hall has been able to help the owners of everything from super-strong Labradors, bereaved Terriers and aggressive Collies through to stroppy Bassett Hounds, overzealous guard dogs and even a rampaging pug cross called Dolly Parton.

Having worked with thousands of dogs and their owners over the years, he's witnessed pretty much every type of bad behaviour going - and believes that no dog is naughty, some just need a bit of guidance to learn right from wrong.

Speaking on This Morning earlier this year, Hall explained: "Often it's because we don't reward the good bits, because we get stuck in telling them off for what they do.

"And then when they stop and they're actually quite good for a while, you kind of forget to go, 'Good boy.'

"So if you're not careful, by accident you end up nagging them."

Explaining the challenges of training a rescue dog, Hall continued: "Quite often with a rescue dog you don't know the back story, so nobody knows what the history is with that dog.

"So you have to simply say, 'It is what it is, we know what the issues are and we go from there. If you don't leave that behind it can be a problem, because sometimes you're too sympathetic towards them, you [feel] sorry for them every time they're anxious. They're anxious, they think you're anxious and it gets worse and worse.

"The best thing you can do is really rise above it and go, 'It's fine, everything's okay,' and that deameanour's a good start point."
