Some of the country’s most mischievous pets have been revealed.

A handful of four-legged friends have been crowned as the UK’s naughtiest animals – with a one-year-old puppy, called Laya, securing the top spot.

With more than 150 hilarious entries, the organisers behind the rankings (insurance providersSO-SURE) had a tough time whittling down a short-list.

But a few canines stood out with their cheeky personalities.

Laya’s destructive antics saw her scoop first place, as she’s recently chewed cushions, duvets and more than 20 pairs of shoes to scraps.

It's certainly unpleasant to take your dog outside when it's snowing or raining, but don't forget that dogs' paws are just as sensitive to heat as human skin.

The mixed breed from Haverfordwest may be the winner of the competition, but a number of other naughty dogs followed close behind. Evie, a one-year-old Labradooble from Leeds, placed second after proudly chewing through her family’s football goal net. Likewise, Daisy the chocolate Labrador came in third position for her kitchen-raiding antics. A cheeky greyhound from Bournemouth, called Lightning, came fourth after tearing his new mattress topper bed to shreds. Miniature dachshund Gwynnie scooped fifth place after fashioning herself a sleeping bag out of a pillow.

Use a Bright Colored Bandana On Your Dog During Hunting Season. Make sure both you & your dog stick out if you’re going to be out walking during hunting season. You can wear bright colors (orange is preferred), and you can help keep your dog safe by having them wear a bright orange bandana.

Meeting your new puppy, kitten or any other pet can be an exciting experience. Your pet, however, has some adjusting to do. New sights, smells and sounds can be overwhelming for the little guy and keeping a calm household is important.
