Border Collies for Goose Management

Border Collies are an absolutely beautiful breed. They are considered one of the most intelligent dogs in the world, and they are in high demand as pets and as working dogs. But since they are high energy dogs, Border Collies generally do not make good pets unless they receive a lot of exercise and enrichment.

Border Collies excel at many jobs, but their unique ability to herd and stalk makes them perfect for one job in particular— protecting humans and properties against aggressive, unsanitary, and unsightly Canada geese.

The Huge Problem with Canada Geese

Canada geese were originally shipped to the east coast by hunters in the early 1900s to act as live decoys during hunting season. When it became illegal to do such a thing, the Canada geese were released in 1935 and have been increasing in numbers ever since. In Northern Virginia and across the United States, the goose population has skyrocketed because of their long lifespans (up to 30 years) and very few natural predators. Left unchecked, geese living in large outdoor spaces with mowed areas and bodies of water –like public parks, golf courses, school campuses, concert grounds, and other venues— will quickly transform the place into a shabby, dirty nightmare. 

Here are some reasons geese are such disturbing pests:

· They are very aggressive to people and other animals, and their attacks can cause injuries.

· Geese eliminate fecal waste every eight minutes. One goose can consume up to four pounds of grass per day, creating about three pounds of fecal matter daily. In large concentrations, this matter can contribute to excessive nutrient loading because fecal matter contains 76 percent carbon, 4.4 percent nitrogen, and 1.3 percent phosphorus. These nutrients can cause algal blooms and excessive plant growth in lakes.  (Reference:

· The fecal waste of geese contains salmonella, giardia, E. coli, and other communicable pathogens, bacteria, and parasites that are toxic to humans and pets. 

· They disrupt the balance of the ecosystem by overly consuming native plants.

·  Uncontrolled, Canada geese pose a serious threat to general health and welfare.

Border Collies: Effective and Humane Way of Driving Away Geese

While Canada geese do pose serious problems, they are still protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty (MBTA) 1918. This means that it’s illegal for geese to be killed or harmed apart from a narrow hunting window. 

Unfortunately, solutions like visual deterrents, chemical solutions, and noisemakers have been proven useless against Canada geese. Even worse, methods like having a managed goose control service can be very expensive especially for large sites.

Border Collies present an effective, humane, and affordable long-term solution. A trained goose dog knows how to spot Canada geese. They’ll intimidate these fowl and force them to fly away from your property and more importantly, to stay away. They will stand as predators to Canada geese without touching or harming them in any way.
