3 KEEP DOGS UNDER CONTROL Dogs can disturb farm animals, people and wild life.By law your dog has to have a short lead in the country side.If you’re on a public foot path your dog can have no lead only if he's under control.If your dog scares or injures a farmer’s animal they are entitled to shoot it if they want.If you’re been chased by the farmer’s animals, let your dog off; don’t protect it.Make sure your dog does not disturb nesting birds.For safety, clear up dog droppings because it carries disease.Please follow the code.Keep your dog under control.
4 Protect Plants And Animals The countryside code tells you to protect plants and animals. This is important because they are living things too. Without them the countryside would not be what it is today.Animals and plants are special to the countryside because without them it would be boring.

6 Drive slowly on country roads There could be farmers moving their cattle on the road. Please drive slowly and carefully.
7 Leave gates and property as you find it People must think about farmer’s livestock when they open gates. There may not be sheep there at the time but there may be after they have gone.Don’t climb on gates and walls!
