Experience you can Trust

Gordon is the son of goose control industry pioneer, Barbara Ray, of Seclusival Farm and Kennel. During her career, Barbara has trained and sold hundreds of Goosedogs and helped organizations all over the U.S. rid themselves of nuisance goose populations. She has passed on her extensive skills and experience as a trainer and handler over to Gordon who brings them to bear on South East Michigan’s numerous goose control challenges.

Certified for success and safety

All of Goodbye Geese’s dogs and handlers are certified by the North American Goosedog Association (NAGA), the industry’s premier registration authority. With a seal of approval from NAGA, you can rest assured that your goose control problem is in capable hands. To learn more, visit the North American Goosedog Association’s website here.
