A view for a dog
Please clear something up. I maintain that it is cruel to keep a dog inside a property without some sort of view outside (ie high walls and opaque gates). It makes them frustrated and aggressive to be able to hear but not see the goings on outside. Am I right? Should a dog be able to see outside?

Not necessarily. You do need to provide adequate entertainment and toys though to prevent boredom.
