They say that a criminal always returns to the scene of their crime.

But this is the hilarious moment one Chinese owner from Guangdong Province’s Zhongshan City makes an absolute dog’s dinner of trying to get his crafty corgi to come back to the rubbish bin she had ransacked for a telling off.

Lured with the promise of food, the hungry hound, called Milk-tea, charges into the room but quickly realises it’s a trap and bolts into her cage, slamming the door shut.

The video begins with a man holding a metallic tray of dog biscuits which he shakes while calling out ‘Milk-tea, come out for food’.

Suddenly, Milk-tea sprints round the corner and into the kitchen, excitedly wagging her tongue.

As she comes closer, the camera pans out to show an empty blue bin which is surrounded by the rubbish which had presumably once been chucked inside it.

When the dog is confronted with the piles of old tissues and the trash can she had earlier rummaged through, the now cautious corgi slows her pace.

The owner says ‘who did that?’ and reality of an imminent telling off dawns on the pooch who turns on the spot and races across the room into her cage.

She then uses her mouth to grip the door from the inside, pulls it closed and looks at her owner innocently.

Although the owner ultimately failed to get his pet to return to the mess and be held accountable, the tactic of tempting her with food is a known method of attracting dogs.

Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov famously found that the animals become conditioned to link certain actions with consequences which triggers a response.

For example, shaking a bowel of biscuits will indicate that the dog is about to be fed, and so she hurries in to the kitchen.

However, this time, the corgi was just too smart.
