Channel 5 has ordered a total of 36 hours of factual programming from Avalon with new orders for Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly and The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door.

Following the success of two series of Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly, a further 12 x 60 mins have been commissioned for a third series, along with 4 x 60 min specials, an increase of 10 episodes on the previous two series. The programme has also been picked up by broadcasters worldwide including Australia’s Seven Network, Germany’s ProSiebenSat.1, Sweden’s TV4, Finland’s YLE, Norway’s TV2 and Belgium’s SBS.

Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly sees Master Dog Trainer, Graeme Hall, 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.”

The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door has also seen its run double with 20 x 60 mins episodes ordered for series 8.  Internationally, the show has been sold to Australia’s Foxtel, AMC Networks and Sweden’s TV4.

The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door has been airing on the channel since 2014.  Going behind closed doors, viewers learn what happened between neighbours when heated disputes arose, following some of the most extreme cases in the country with up to four stories covered in each episode.

Jamie Isaacs, Executive Producer for Avalon, said, “We are delighted to be part of the success story at 5 and thank Ben, Seb and the team for all their support.”

Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly was commissioned by Channel 5’s Commissioning Editor, Factual, Kit Morey, and The Nightmare Neighbour Next Door was commissioned by Channel 5’s Commissioning Editor, Factual, Daniel Louw.
