I have always used Axis camera's.  they are very easy to setup and you have

me via email and upload a picture to an ftp site if motion was detected.

Depending on the versions you buy you will have different options.

Sounds like you might not deter the thieves since they didn't care about
the dogs but this will allow you to capture their image.
