In the beginning, the geese may just fly away and return as soon as they think the area is safe. This is why it is necessary to continue randomly scheduled daily dog service visits until the geese learn that the area is not safe. Canada geese will become annoyed by the threat of being moved off by border collies and most likely choose another place to spend their time. Other Canada Geese may drop in but are easily moved because they don’t have a long-term connection to this property and will look for a safe location to feed and raise their young.
