Dog Borstal

This is a last-resort boot camp for canine criminals and their hapless owners. Putting doggie misfits through their paces are three of the UK’s toughest trainers – Robert Alleyne, Mic Martin and Lynne Davies. They attempt to knock the dogs and their owners into shape with a strong dose of tough love and hard discipline. Each program follows the highs and lows of three dogs during a one-week stay in a disused air force base in Suffolk. Using their own individual styles, a designated trainer is assigned to each owner and dog in order to assess their problems and outline a new training regime to get these dogs back on track.

Wednesdays from 12 March, 9.30pm on Animal Planet
