Is your pup not acting like a 10/10 good doggo? Then they could become the star of the next Channel 5 series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly.

Metro reports that dog trainer Graeme Hall is looking for the naughtiest dogs in the land to put him to the test, lending his services to those who love their pets, but are struggling with their behaviour.

The new show also reassured potential candidates on the series: ‘We will be following all government guidelines and will adapt our filming protocols in line with those.’ Previous episodes have seen Graeme – dubbed The Dogfather – being put through his paces by puppies who are having trouble learning things.

But he’s managed to calm down aggressive dogs who won’t stop barking, hounds who keep nicking food from their owners, and others who have separation issues.

Speaking on This Morning previously, Graeme said one of the biggest problems was leaning towards negative punishment rather than positive enforcement.

‘Often it’s because we don’t reward the good bits, because we get stuck in telling them off for what they do,’ he said. ‘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.’

Avalon Factual, the show’s production company, are yet to set a release date for the new series, with filming yet to start as they look for the next stars of the show. If you’re interested in taking part, email dogs@avalonuk.com or call 020 7598 7365.
