Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly is a fun series on Channel 5, but do you know the most naughty dog breeds in the UK?
It is followed by top dog trainer Graeme Hall who helps dog owners across the UK tame their naughty dogs.
But which breeds of dogs are the most naughty?
According to a recent study by GoodMove, these are the five most naughty dog breeds in the UK:
Labradors have long been one of the most popular dog breeds in the UK. And they are especially popular with families.

Fun, playful, and extremely loyal – they can be pretty naughty too.

However, this is often due to their high energy levels.
If they don’t take regular walks, they’re likely to get frustrated – and be behaving all over the house from destruction.
2. Border Collie
Border Collies are one of the most intelligent dog breeds around. And, like Labradors, if left unattended, they are very much prone to doing no good.

Collies were bred to be working dogs. When not being used as a farm dog, they require several hours of exercise per day. You will also benefit greatly from agility training.
If you are looking for a lap dog or city living puppy, it is best to avoid this breed. But when you have hours to devote a day to exercising your pooch and living in the country, a border collie can be a wonderfully fun and devoted dog.
Beagles belong to the hunting dog family. That said, they’re natural hunters and sniffers – and they can be difficult to control when they get a whiff of anything that piques their interest!

Because of this, they need very solid training, including a good recall. Otherwise they might run away as soon as they get an enticing smell.
Beagles also need a lot of exercise and they are also pack dogs – so best with other dogs. But in terms of personality, they can be very cute and extremely playful.
4. Cocker Spaniel
Cocker spaniels were originally bred to hunt and rescue woodcock birds. This naturally makes her playful and a lover of the outdoors.
But they’re also very smart and require a lot of attention – or they’re very likely to misbehave!

However, with adequate exercise and attention, they are very gracious and can make excellent family pets.
5. Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Staffys have had a bad rap in the past. They got a bad rap for aggression.
However, they are not naturally aggressive dogs, but are unfortunately often trained to act as illegal “attack dogs”.

In fact, they are usually very affectionate and are often referred to as “big softies” by their owners.
But given their strong physical strength and terrier intelligence, they still need a steady hand.
Thorough training is definitely required with this breed, otherwise their stubborn side could definitely defeat the owners.
