Canada geese populations in Virginia have exploded in recent years with the proliferation of urban developments containing manicured landscaping close to ponds, providing an ideal habitat for these geese.
Canada geese can be aggressive to humans; they are loud and extremely messy, with each goose capable of producing over 2 pounds of droppings per day, on average pooping every 8 minutes. Not only is this waste unsightly, it can pose a health risk to humans and pets, containing E. coli, salmonella, giardia as well as parasites. The abundance of nitrogen in the poop can also cause an algae bloom in ponds, requiring chemical intervention to reverse.
With few natural predators, populations are increasing and the recent mild winters are extending breeding season. This problem cannot be ignored. Fortunately there is a solution.
Goose Rangers, LLC. uses specially trained Border Collies to frighten the geese into believing there are predators present. The Goose Rangers Border Collies have a unique wolf-like stalk and a mesmerizing "eye" that move the geese into movement and flight, Our properly trained Border Collies never touch or harm the geese; their intimidating presence is enough to convince the geese to move to a new home. All of our Border Collies swim after the geese as well during the warmer weather, which really gives the geese something to react to! Our methods are endorsed by the Humane Society of the United States, are cost effective, and proven to work.
