We work within the guidelines of the following organizations:

How do we clear your property of nuisance Canada geese? We direct our trained Border Collie dogs to safely move them.  This type of bird control, referred to as hazing or harassment, does not harm geese but it does unsettle them. If the geese go to water, we move them out of the water. The result is geese fly away from your property.  

Repetitive canine patrols instill a predator fear in geese and convince them to find safer places to forage and nest.  The results are immediate. Two important notes on how our Border Collies work: 1) the dogs are always accompanied by a handler and never dropped off and left to work on their own and 2) the dogs do not bark at the geese, but work as predators do, with stealth, speed and vigilance. Hazing is recognized by government agencies and animal rights groups as a humane and effective method of goose control. Federal or State permits are not required to perform this work as no chemicals, traps, or other harmful techniques are used to dissuade the geese from taking up residence on your property.

Safety is key to our work.   Some example procedures we employ to work safely include: 

  • Waiting for people to clear an area or complete their activities before allowing the dogs to work. 
  • Wearing life vests when accessing water by kayak or other watercraft.
  • Harassment with canines is paws off nuisance geese removal or abatement. The dogs drive the geese away, but do not harm them.
