I'm not new to keeping and raising geese, but I am new to the concept of training and imprinting. I know it's very possible to train geese to be friendly, do tricks and follow simple commands. There are videos on YouTube. There is even a video of a woman agility training a duck like a dog. I was wondering if there were any tips and tricks to training geese. We're getting a few Sebastopol goslings in the spring, and I would like to walk them on a leash, diaper train them (like Oliver the Goose on YouTube), and socialize them around people, as we do own a home business where strangers come in and out of the yard. The last thing I want is for someone, or even myself, to be attacked. Has anyone had any experience with geese and what are some things I could try?
They will also be exposed to dogs, cats, and a flock of ducks.
