It was announced today (Thursday 17th October) that Channel 5 has commissioned Avalon to produce a brand new 3 x 60 mins series – Toddlers Behaving (Very) Badly, along with a further 10 x 60 mins series of ratings hit show Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly, including a celebrity special featuring three celebrity owners and their mischievous mutts, which ties in with the channel’s Help the Animals charity appeal.
Toddlers’ tantrums are notoriously hard to manage and it’s a ticking time bomb. If bad behaviour is not nipped in the bud before kids reach school age it’s hard to reverse.
The series will follow childcare expert and private nanny Laura Amies, as she travels around the country helping desperate families struggling with extremely badly behaved toddlers, vowing to tackle any issue from tantrums to biting, picky eaters, non-sleepers and potty training woes.
Each episode will feature three different families experiencing behavioural issues with their toddlers. Laura will meet the children and the parents, and observe their behaviour and any surrounding issues. She will then implement her intervention and give the family advice and techniques to help transform their behaviour.
The first series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly which aired at the start of 2019, hit a series high of 1.5m (8.1%) after five episodes. Series 2 will once again follow the work of the highly experienced dog behaviour expert, Graeme Hall AKA ‘The Dogfather’ as he travels across Britain to help more out of control dogs and their desperate owners – transforming their home life in the process. Graeme meets three tricky dogs in each episode and uses his tried and tested techniques to fix their behaviour in record time. His mantra is simple, “Any Dog, Any Age, Any Problem.”
Armed with over 12 years of training, the equivalent of approx. 74 dog years, Graeme has helped train over 5,000 canines and their owners. Getting the problem fixed quickly and getting it right first time, he has gained a unique reputation within his profession. With his specific approach of combining knowledge and understanding, he gets the results the owners want for their dogs. That’s more than knowledge – it’s a feel for dogs.
Toddlers Behaving (Very) Badly and Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly were commissioned by Channel 5’s Commissioning Editor, Factual, Emma Westcott and made by Avalon Factual, makers of Sugar Free Farm, Scrappers, The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door, Dave Gorman: Modern Life is Goodish and Heir Hunters. The executive producers are Jamie Isaacs (Chief Executive of Avalon Factual Television) and Tim Quicke.
Jamie Isaacs, Executive Producer for Avalon, said, ‘After the success of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly we are excited to be developing the brand into new areas with Channel 5.’
