In our opinion anyone who said that a border collie is supposed to resemble an arctic fox is only a dog breeder trying to sell an $8,000 dog.
Municipals, school districts, corporate building, golf courses, etc. pay millions of $$$ for a service that in most eyes, don't work!
Reason for this is that a border collie (dog) is not a natural predator to birds.
Border collies must run multiple times a day as geese return as soon as the handler leaves the property and this leads to droppings, a method that can get quite expensive and still leaving you with a mess.
Dogs are just a nuisance to geese; they can easily fly away when the dog comes close.
This is not a real threat.
Border Collies are also ineffective against seagulls and brands (smaller goose).
Dogs can't be used year round (molting season).
To remove geese from water, the handler must put the dog in a boat with a life vest, then paddle out, chase after the geese hoping the dog barks.
This is very ridiculous, time consuming and also very dangerous.
Unfortunately, a few years ago, a handler lost his life when his boat overturned.
If you own a dog, you know what the price of food is costing you today not counting vet bills, grooming and don't forget the baby sitting time.
Average use of a working dog is only three years!
Geesebusters "animal scaring device" blows-out birds for 1/4-1/2 mile radius and further.
It's a threat that flies into the air, which is equal to a bird!
Since birds are territorial they leave the area because of our eagle.
Border collies can never cover the ground that we can!
Running dogs is now an outdated method!
Our method controls nuisance birds throughout the year and we're the only company to control geese during the molt.
