How it works

Border Collies, unlike other breeds of herding dogs, use an intimidating stare (“the eye”) to influence the flock into flight or movement. The eye is similar to the stalking methods used by wolves and other canine predators. The Geese see the Border Collie as an active predator and are therefore less inclined to remain on your property.


We vary the time of day for our visits to make the Geese believe that there are multiple predators on your property. This causes them to decide to move on to another location where they may carry on their business without pressure from a perceived predator.


Our highly trained Border Collies are specially taught not to touch the geese. Rather their instincts are to find enjoyment from herding the animal and not catching them.  We use our boats to chase the birds when they seek the shelter of open water.  And our dogs love the water too.​

Our Experience

Backed by more than 25 years of Canada Goose control experience, Geese Police of Western PA knows what it takes to remove these problem animals from a variety of properties.  We have helped corporate centers, parks, playgrounds, schools, universities, cemeteries, municipalities, lakes, and more. 


Because Canada geese are protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, a statute that is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), it is illegal to kill, harass, harm, purchase, or sell Canada geese or to disturb their nests and eggs without a federal permit from the USFWS. Pennsylvania requires an additional permit from the Pennsylvania Game Authority. 


​We are also familiar with other control efforts that have limited or short term success.  These include goose-repellent chemicals, streamers, and other "goose-frightening" props that will alter the appearance of your property.

People and Eco Friendly

All of our techniques and services are ecologically green.  We use don't use chemicals, repellents, nor any site altering silhouettes or 3D decoys.

Ours is a natural, effective, and sustainable approach for Canada goose control and is approved by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), the US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Humane Society, and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

An Unpleasant Problem

Do you know that most geese in Western Pennsylvania do not migrate?  Geese must be taught the migratory flight path by their parents, so geese who fail to migrate will create further generations of non-migrating, or “resident,” geese. Geese remember their place of birth and return there to breed and rear their young. 


Since resident geese are not busy expending energy on migrating, they have more energy for activities that support population growth. Resulting in more geese on your property and even more nesting birds next year. Since ​man-made habitats are often devoid of natural predators, these allow the Canada Goose population to have growth rates of 15-19% annually. 

​What they leave behind can be surprising. A single Canada goose averages a pound to a pound and a half of droppings per day. Adult geese eat up to 3.5 pounds of grass daily! Estimates of the time it takes for the ingestion of this grass to complete and pass through the birds is only around 7 minutes.
