You have a Canada Goose problem. You've read about it in USA Today, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Burlington County Times: the concern about E coli; the nuisance of the droppings; the disturbance to you and to your property users.
There are a handful of methods currently used by organizations suffering from "resident Canada Goose" populations. Only one has proven to be successful. Many have tried scarecrows, flags, mylar tape and balloons. Others have tried pop guns, noise makers, fencing, and sound machines. Some have even applied chemicals to the turf. None of these provide an effective, natural and long-lasting solution. Only the use of highly trained handlers and Border Collies will control your Canada Goose problem year-round.
Bred to Persistently Herd
The Border Collie is a breed of herding dogs that were reared by shepherds in the border country between Scotland and England starting in the 1700s. They have an inbred ability to stalk and herd. When confronting geese, Border Collies will crouch, stalk and present a menacing "wolf-like" gaze. The Canada Goose will be convinced there is a predator approaching and that the property is unsafe.
The Geese Chaser Solution
Geese Chasers will visit your site daily at random times during the first several weeks. Each visit reinforces the message of danger to the Canada Goose population; soon they will relocate to other areas.
Amazingly, the Border Collie will never come into contact with Canada Goose; bringing no harm to them, to children or to anyone present. In fact, Border Collies are among the smartest, friendliest dogs you can find. Unless you're a Canada Goose.
