Training Border Collies to Manage Canada Geese
Border Collies have an inherent ability to herd that’s been honed through hundreds of years. That’s what makes them so uniquely adept at working with livestock.
However, these dogs are not born knowing how to handle geese— an untrained Border Collie can harm a goose instead of simply driving it away.
It's essential to teach goose dogs how to scare away geese without touching or harming them. Canada geese are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA) 1918, and they cannot be killed or harmed outside a small hunting window.
At Goose Dogs For Sale, we harness that natural ability by working in the field on actual Canada geese. We also train our Border Collies in a ring at Keepstone Farm which has 75 acres of various sized, open fields and duck arenas.
In addition, our goose dogs work on their skills in a controlled environment with our Indian Runner Ducks to help them spot Canada geese and intimidate them to fly away to another location.
Every Border Collie you buy from Goose Dogs For Sale includes handler training of your new dog and a 6-month warranty.
When you buy a dog from us, we will send you videos of the training of your new dog in progress to keep you up to speed at all times. You will also receive a free lifetime consultation on top of the 6-month warranty. Owner Cathy Benedict has over 20 years of experience in this field.
