TikTok user Shannyfantg (@user3228721954538) posted the eerie footage earlier this week, telling viewers to watch the black dog in the clip carefully.
She wrote: "Sorry for the obnoxious barking at the beginning. Watch my black dog. Ghost takes her collar off in her crate."
In the video, there are two dogs in separate cages barking at each other.
About 25 seconds into the security camera footage, the two animals suddenly go completely quiet - and remain silent for some time.
The black dog, which is in the crate on the right, then randomly jerks backwards into the side of the crate, its collar coming off of its own accord.
This is the moment that its owner believes was a 'ghost' removing the collar - an idea that some people are kind of convinced by.
One person commented: "I've never seen such a convincing ghost video."
Someone else wrote: "They both got super quiet... They felt the energy."
A third said the silence was 'unsettling', while a fourth added: "OH HELLLLLLLLL NOOOOO."
Some people commented to argue that the owner shouldn't have kept the dogs in crates, but she explained in a reply: "She was a puppy here and she is a Belgium Malinios. She needed to be crated. She still goes in her crate to lay down when the door is open."
Others took a stab at their own theory as to what really happened, with one suggesting the dog's collar had actually got its collar caught on the bars of the metal crate, in turn yanking it off by mistake.
They said: "Collar was stuck on crate, when the dog turns his head it unbuckled. The dog got startled at the collar unbuckling and jumped back. Cmon people."
While some people weren't sold on the explanation, saying the dog was 'nowhere near the sides of that crate for it to be stuck on anything', another added: "The dog was stuck on the side of the crate closest to the camera."
One other TikToker said: "The only thing that would make sense - BESIDES A GHOST (which I believe in) is the collar was too tight, the dog turned its neck and made it snap off. Dog gets scared and jumps back."
