Search is On for Britain's Worst Behaved Dog

08 August 2016

UK - With an estimated 9 million dogs in the UK (a quarter of households own a dog), it’s inevitable that not all of them will be well behaved all of the time, and some of them will be driving their owners to distraction.

Rovyon Dog Training are searching nationwide for the Britain’s Worst Behaved Dog, with the winning pooch getting some much needed intensive training, courtesy of the dog training company that has now been working with dogs for over 50 years.

Royvon has launched their search for Britain’s Worst Behaved Dog to highlight the problems that owners face and to show how a small investment of time and money in training will lead to a better relationship between owner and dog.

Over 600 dogs a year are trained by Royvon Dog Training and this is rising steadily year on year. The need for training varies from anxiety and aggression around people and other dogs, to general obedience, recall and pulling on a lead.

Darren James, Managing Director, Royvon Dog Training and Dog Hotels says: “All dog parents should invest some time in training their pet as this sets out how the dog will behave in different situations throughout their life. It’s important to socialise a dog and to encourage good behaviour but as we “humanise” dogs more we overlook when they do something wrong, and in some cases, this could lead to series problems later.

“Whether it’s a big or small problem, no matter how quirky, if your dog is driving you crazy we want to hear from you. We are looking forward to finding the UK’s Worst Behaved Dog and working with the parent and dog to stop bad habits.”

To enter the Royvon’s Worst Behaved Dog Competition and win the opportunity to have your dog trained visit complete the entry form with details of why yours is Britain’s Worst Behaved Dog and send a short video (no more than 2MB).

The entries will be judged by Darren James, MD of Royvon Dog Training and actress Ashley Jensen, who starred in Ugly Betty and whose dog Lloyd, a golden retriever, is currently in training with Rovyon.

Ashley’s dog Barney, who sadly passed away recently, was also trained on a residential training course and stayed regularly with Royvon.
