Animal welfare groups have accused Channel 10’s new show Dogs Behaving (Very Badly) of using ‘outdated methods’ to train dogs ahead of its premiere.

Channel 10’s new show Dogs Behaving (Very) has been accused of using ‘outdated methods’ to train dogs badly.

The series, which is set to premiere on July 21, features trainer Graeme Hall training the country’s ‘naughty hounds’.

According to the Herald Sun, Pet Professionals Guild Australia has contacted Ten over allegations of using “outdated” methods to retrain dogs on the show.

The RSPCA also contacted the network in January to raise concerns about the language used in the show.

A spokesman said: ‘The RSPCA opposes the use and promotion of aggressive dog training techniques and methods, which are associated with this event.’

Animal welfare groups have accused Channel 10’s new show Dogs Behaving (very) of using ‘unconventional methods’ to train dogs.

‘We are also concerned about the language used in the show, which inappropriately places blame on dogs who exhibit certain behaviours.’

The animal welfare charity said it encourages all dog owners to use ‘reward-based training’ to promote good behaviour.

Channel 10 told the publication that it takes animal welfare seriously and that all training techniques used on the show are ‘reward-based’.
