Deter Geese with Coroplast Watchdog Decoys

Coroplast Dog Cutout

Got geese?

Many of us do, year-round. Thousands of them live in the Chicagoland area, where they roam golf courses, parks, corporate campuses, schools and neighborhoods. Their droppings litter the ground and they can be aggressive to both children and adults. And they can be a real challenge to chase off your property. But we’ve got a creative “kill two birds with one stone” answer for deterring them: coroplast dog decoys custom-printed with your logo. Geese see the coroplast dogs as threats and leave areas where the decoy dogs are “on patrol.” You’ll make your property more welcoming as well as reduce the chance of being a public health hazard. After all, who wants to walk through where geese have left their droppings, tracking them inside your home or business?  

If you’re interested in using coroplast dogs on your goose problem, here are a few tips:

  • Scare off geese before you install your new decoys.
  • Place your decoys with the feet three to four inches off the ground so that the dogs look realistic.
  • Move your decoys every few days so geese don’t get used to their locations.

Coroplast dog decoys can also be effective in deterring deer, rabbits, and other animals.

Best of all, coroplast decoy dogs offer a prime marketing opportunity. Sometimes the most effective marketing is the most unexpected, because your message can connect with someone when he or she is least expecting it. Including your logo on your coroplast dog decoys is a great way to build awareness for your brand. Customized coroplast dogs are cut for a crisp, realistic silhouette. They’re made of durable weather-resistant corrugated plastic, which stands up to wind, rain, hail, sleet, snow, sun and anything else Mother Nature can throw at us. With proper care, your coroplast dog decoys can last several seasons. The number of coroplast dog decoys you’ll need depends on the size of your property. As a rule of thumb, you’ll need 3-5 dogs for an area the size of a football field. If you have a pond or pool, you’ll probably need three, no matter the size of your property.
