WHY USE BORDER COLLIES?
Border Collies offer an environmentally-friendly way to manage
problem geese. These highly intelligent and trainable dogs police
problem geese with an enthusiasm and diligence which quickly
persuades geese that future peace can only be obtained by finding
another place to live.
Birds cannot habituate to the Border Collie. A dog is an actual
predator and the birds will always feel threatened. They are a
more effective control method because they are perceived as a
natural predator, unlike noisemakers and other mechanical means.
The Border Collie can be used at any time for optimum
effectiveness. They are quiet workers and will not disturb clients
or other wildlife. Border Collies are practically tireless and are
adaptable and obsessive workers.
A high quality goose-control dog is the most humane and effective
way of dealing with Canada goose management issues. Many sites
report public relations benefits as well. Parks, airfields, and
golf courses which employ Border Collies for Canada Goose
management, justly earn reputations for being conscientious and
Local newspapers and industry newsletters are eager to write
feature articles on this novel method of dealing with problem
geese. Thus a specially trained Border Collie goose control dog is
an opportunity for positive public relations.
