Canadian Geese: beautiful, and one of your biggest nuisances - but one that can be mitigated, thanks to Kuykendall's Border Collies.
Border Collies are being used for the control of nuisance Canada geese throughout North America and Canada. Since this amazing breed actively herds the geese, they are perceived as predators - an area where mechanical devices fail.
The result? A clean, attractive environment, free from the vegetation damage that geese create.
You can achieve this, too. Kuykendall Border Collies are successfully working at golf courses, business parks, and educational establishments all over the US, helping manage and control these beautiful but nuisance birds.
We begin the training for our Goose Control Dogs by careful selection; if the raw material isn't right, the end product won't be, either.
It is essential that these dogs come from strong working lines with an exceptional work ethic. They also must have temprements that make them easy for an average, non-dog person to handle and work.
All of our Goose Dogs are strong and seasoned swimmers, since geese will often avoid a dog by heading into the water. With our dogs, that's not a problem.
Contrary to many goose dog providers, we provide a solid foundation of actual herding training. This includes general obedience, and livestock work - on land as well as in the water.
Why? Dogs trained strictly "on the goose job" degenerate into chasing behavior; and that is, quite simply, bad form. It's bad for your customers to see, it's bad for the dog's long term working ability, and it's bad for maintaining control over the dog.
But, dogs with a solid foundation training in herding have learned to do the job right and to be self-reward by doing the job right; and that professionalism carries through.

What Clients Say
Westport, CT Parks and Recreation Department: "Kate has been a wonderful asset to our operation..... As you know, we needed to purchase a dog that was able to perform in a variety of situations, from golf course, to park, to beach. The dog had to be good with children, had to be able to work in water as well as out, had to be no older than two and had to be a female. This was seemingly a tall order, that you were able to fill in a short amount of time..... Nearly as important as Kate's ability was my ability to handle her properly. You have been a great help, both for the time I spent on your farm being trained to handler Kate, and for all the help you've given me along the way."
Colonial Country Club, Thomasville, NC: "The Border Collies got the job done!"
Geese Relief, LLC, Greenwich, CT: "Kent and Gwen have gone above and beyond their contract. I would recommend anyone to buy a Border Collie from Kent and Gwen Kuykendall, whether it be for Canada goose control, farm work, field trials, or just as a household pet."
Star Hill Golf Club, Cape Carteret, NC: "Nick is doing fine and has been completely successful at elimating geese from our property. I followed your advice, and each step led to success. The video tape was espcially helpful."
Thornberry Creek Country Club, Green Bay, WI: "Simply put, Hank is one of our better investments and business decisions we have ever made... Yesterday, eight construction workers witnessed (his work) and gave Hank a standing ovation. If you need recommendations, have them call - or better yet, send them over!"
