Naughty dog gets his head caught in a pot after trashing the plant

Dogs may be man’s best friend but, God, they can make a mess at times.

Perhaps it’s because they know we love them too much to really do anything about it.

The latest doggo with no regard for home aesthetics is Berkeley. Only his mortal enemy wasn’t the furniture or contents of the kitchen cupboard.

Berkeley the Golden Doodle went for the house plant instead.

After trashing an indoor palm tree, Berkely was caught red-handed around the mess.

And in case the owners had doubts about who did it, Berkely only managed to go and get his head trapped in the plant pot.

The beloved pet was filmed laying down on a cushion next to the palm tree tossed out from its pot and surrounded by its soil.

Owner Justin Jones, 27, was heard in the clip asking his cheeky canine pet: ‘What did you do, Berk? What did you do?’

After asking the same question a third time, he concluded: ‘You’re a monster.’

At least he’s the cutest monster we’ve seen.

Berkeley could be seen staring innocently at his flabbergasted owner – seemingly unconcerned at the basket-sized problem around his neck.

Stay consistent with training, play time and rest time for your pets so they don’t get too overwhelmed. Your calm and consistent demeanor will help your pet to understand that they can trust you. Once you earn their trust, understand the schedule, and feel secure in their safe place, both of your lives will be much easier.

The one-year-old dog lives with his human Justin in Utah, U.S. Justin added: ‘He knocked [the tree] over and chewed it to shreds!

‘It took about an hour or two to get all of that dirt up.’

The video got over 2.3 million views on social media with viewers tickled by Berekely’s antics. After going viral, Berekely’s own Instagram page was set up (@naughty-berkeley).

The account posted an image of the plant incident scene captioned: ‘Mum and Dad weren’t happy, but it was worth it.’

And it seems Berekely is in good company as many other dogs have penchants for making a mess.

Porridge the three-year-old rescue mutt was also spotted amid the chaos he caused at home.

Dogs eh, what are they like?
