A Ring doorbell has captured the moment a puppy jumped onto a kitchen counter to steal a bottle of dog probiotics.

Andy and Lucy Bryce shared the moment Moose, and 18-month-old Weimaraner rescue, navigated the kitchen counter, sniffing around for the probiotics pot in the dark.

Moose then pulled them across the worksurface with his paws, then onto the floor to gobble up.

Speaking to Ring about the incident, Lucy said, “We wouldn't think in a million years he'd be up in the night stealing it and eating the whole pot.

“Needless to say he was nice and firm with a very healthy gut the following week.”

Lucy describes Moose as a ‘loveable nightmare’ and explains this wasn’t the first time they’ve witnessed his mischievous behaviour on their Ring devices.

“Since he was found living on the streets, he seems to be very dexterous. He can do all sorts of things with his paws that I've never known any other dog to do,” Lucy explained, “He surprises us one day to the next with what he gets up to.”

After being found abandoned on the streets, fending for himself and scavenging for food in Hungary, they adopted him through the Vizslamentés UK Rescue Trust, a UK based Rescue Trust supporting the only specialist HPR breed rescue in Hungary.

Lucy and Andy now have three dogs, including Moose and his two sisters, Eve, an eight-year-old Silver Labrador and Lola, a five-year-old Weimaraner.

With their Ring Video Doorbell + Chime and three Ring Indoor Cameras, Lucy says it is great to see what they get up to and be able to speak to them using Ring’s Two-Way Talk.

“We purchased the extra cameras in particular to see what our new dog was up to whilst we were asleep or out of the house, and of course extra security. This proved invaluable to see him committing crime.”

Ring’s top tips for peace of mind when your dog is alone

  1. Installing an indoor camera means you can check in on your dog wherever you are. The ideal choices are Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In paired with the Pan-Tilt Mount to give you an even wider view of your dog’s activities.
  2. Playing calming music will help your dogs stay relaxed and snooze. With the help of Alexa, you can use “Comfort My Dog” and add a Routine that plays calming music when your dog barks.
  3. Make the most of the Two-Way Talk feature that the Ring Stick Up Cam Plug-In offers, giving you the chance to check in with your dogs even while out of the house.
  4. Try to burn off some of your pup’s energy just before you head out, whether that’s going for a long walk or having a play in the garden. The more tired they are, the less chance of mischief.
