Firstly hope everyone is staying safe in these strange times.

@sbthorne asks:

NEIGHBOURS DOG NOISE IN THE COUNTRYSIDECan anyone advise what the regulations are on control of dogs on private land? I live up a hillside with one adjoining neighbour who has two dogs. The dogs are kept permanently outside and are for 'security' I'm told.
