TRAINED GOOSE DOGS Nearly every Border Collie will chase geese, but few meet the specialized requirements for a career as a successful goose dog. What should a well trained goose dog be able to do? A well trained goose dog is the product careful selection followed by months of highly skilled training. Here are just a few of the basics.
  • A goose dog works at a distance from the handler, typically in unfenced areas. Solid, well-proofed obedience training is a must!
  • Like a sheepdog, a goose dog needs voice or whistle commands to direct it right, left, farther out -- wherever the geese are!
  • Beyond basic sheepdog training, a goose dog must be willing to swim out after the birds, and must take direction in the water. Attitude is important! A goose dog must not be intimidated by angry or aggressive geese, and at the same time should seek to herd, not harm them.
  • More specialized skills for goose dogs include riding on golf carts, greeting the public appropriately, ignoring noise or livestock, and other needs peculiar to individual sites. If you are looking for the perfect Border Collie for goose management, sheepdog trials or farm work, we have a selection of quality dogs at various ages and levels of training -- from just-started one year olds to mature, experienced stock, trial or goose control dogs. In general, an older dog with more advanced training is more settled and will find it easier to make a smooth transition to your routines. Such a dog is, of course, pricier than a younger dog, but is well worth the extra cost.
