About Us

Training Border Collie for Goose Control


Goose Dogs For Sale trains and handles Border Collie for goose control management. We are at the forefront of promoting training Border Collies for the effective and humane management of Canada geese. Our portfolio includes goose control companies, wildlife management companies, and golf courses. Owner Cathy Benedict has over 20 years of experience in this field. 


Alongside the many geese control companies in the State, our ultimate goal at Goose Dogs For Sale is to provide highly-trained and reliable Border Collies that fit the unique needs of residents and communities locally across Virginia, but also nationwide as well. We stand true to our vision of “No Harm, No Fowl” — dispersing Canada geese without causing harm or trouble to any species or property.


With Canada geese becoming a persistent problem across the United States, the health threat that they bring to groomed outdoor properties and bodies of water is a genuine concern. 

At Goose Dogs For Sale, we are committed to protecting humans and properties against aggressive Canada geese.

We believe that Border Collies are the cost-effective and long-term solution to keeping geese away from areas where they are considered a nuisance. Border Collies are one of the smartest and hardest working animals that are born with natural ability to herd and stalk geese without harming them. They are born with the right combination of prey drive and control for Canada geese deterrence.

To us, training Border Collies is one of the most beneficial ways to help eliminate the problems of people in Virginia and elsewhere.
