Harassment techniques are nonlethal and humane. The use of Border Collies has been proven as the most successful tactic in ridding properties of geese.  Skilled dogs are trained to chase but not harm the geese. Geese perceive the Border Collies’, more than any other breed, as predators and will be discouraged to stay at the property. 

Trained border collies are a special breed of dog that is both hardworking and extremely intelligent. Their natural instinct to herd and wolf-like glance is threatening to the geese and provoke them into flight. The use of Border Collies for goose control is recommended by The Humane Society of the United States.  Our border collies are highly trained with their specific handler on both whistle and verbal commands.

Skilled handlers are trained with each dog. It takes great time, patience and practice to work as a team to begin herding and controlling the geese population. This is very important with the varying terrains, including ponds, lakes, number of geese and goslings.

Our cost will vary depending on terrain and size of property, number and size of ponds, the current average geese number, and how many geese, if any, you want to live with. A skilled handler and border collie will come out for a free site visit, determine your goals, demonstrate our dog’s ability, and make recommendations.

To be effective dogs must be deployed one to three times a day, every day to control the population. This humane and effective tactic is recommended by The National Humane Society and The Division of Wildlife.
