▶️ Bend Park & Rec seeks dog/owner volunteers for Canada Goose hazing


Bend Park and Recreation District says it’s looking for well-trained dogs and their owners to help out with Canada Goose hazing. BPRD says hazing means chasing geese out of the parks.

Dogs must be able to reliably respond to voice commands and have excellent recall when working off-leash.

BPRD says dog-owner teams will participate with a trainer before being accepted to volunteer.

According to the BPRD website, the district’s Canada Goose Management plan is aimed at reducing damage in parks. 

The district urges the public not to feed geese or ducks, let BPRD know if you spot a goose nest. 

The goal of the District’s Canada Goose Management Plan is to reduce the damage in the parks.  Resident Canada geese spend considerable time in the parks year round and are most associated with park damage.
