“UK’s best dog trainer”

“I love Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly”

“remarkably interesting show”

Following a successful 4-part series going behind the scenes at the UK’s top veterinary hospital in The Dog Hospital with Graeme Hall earlier this year, the nation’s favourite Master Dog Trainer, Graeme Hall, is back to carry on solving pooch problems, with a brand-new sixth series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly returning to Channel 5 in the new year. Graeme will as always, be travelling the length and breadth of the country, meeting exhausted owners with their out of control and unruly four-legged friends, desperate for his no nonsense advice, easy to follow training techniques and long lasting fixes. But more often than not, he needs to work harder on the owners than he does on their dogs.
In the opening episode of the new series, Graeme travels to Bristol where he meets the Cramptons who were hoping a gentle, loving, placid giant St Bernard would improve their family life. But instead, they got Dave, who causes chaos wherever he goes. Whether he’s using grandma as a seat, stealing anything in sight or ruining family time – Dave does what he wants when he wants! Can Graeme help restore harmony?
Over in Surbiton, owners Gemma and Josh have called Graeme to help quash their Pug Rodney’s extreme foot fetish. His obsession is so strong, he’ll dash at runners, sniff out a slider or latch onto anyone’s show laces. With Gemma expecting a baby, his fetish needs to be nipped in the bud before somebody goes head over heels and has a serious accident. This challenge will be no mean feat for Graeme.
Graeme’s final visit in episode 1 is in Teddington where he meets teenager Millie whose parents finally caved in and gave her the much-wanted dog she was so desperate for. Three-year-old Royce has a rather embarrassing problem though – he ‘splats’. But it’s not an issue with his digestive tract, it’s when it’s time for walkies that he ‘splats’, making going anywhere with him a real drag and a major cause of embarrassment for Millie and her friends. With Millie due to start uni and leaving Royce with her mum, will Graeme be able to stop the ‘splat’ in time?
Armed with over 15 years of training, the equivalent of approx. 105 dog years, Graeme has certainly been put to the test by training thousands upon thousands of dogs (and even one fox!) of all breeds and sizes as well as their owners. 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. His mantra is simple, “Any Dog, Any Age, Any Problem.” Graeme also launched two successful series of his very own pooch podcast called Talking Dogs with Graeme Hall, where he talks about how he trains dogs and gives out tips in addition to two published books, All Dogs Great and Small and Perfectly Imperfect Puppy.
Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly TX’s from Tuesday 2nd January 2024 at 8pm on Channel 5
