GOLF COURSE | HOA

A trained border collie not only herds the geese into water, but keeps them from returning to land. Using the border collie “eye” to control the flock encourages geese to focus on survival rather than courtship and nesting.

KNOW THE FACTS BEFORE HIRING
A
GEESE MANAGEMENT COMPANY

Advantages of  using Border Collies for wildlife control, include:

  • ability to work in all types of weather and terrain;
  • effective for birds and deer
  • extreme endurance
  • humane, non-lethal
  • ability to follow commands intently
  • eager to please

Because of their tenacious ability to follow commands and move geese along, our canines are perfect for any situation. With the flocks full attention, our team is more practical than any other method including repeated applications of chemical deterrents. Moving the flock prior to nesting is less labor-intensive than spending weeks and months searching for nests.

Goose mitigation programs are long-term projects that need to be maintained. Once the area is free of monitoring, they will return. However, there are documented cases where the dogs left for over a year before the geese realized they’ve gone. The idea is to monitor the area to make it less desirable for nesting.
