    "Cute, Wild."
    Pros - can be trained, cute,
    Cons - flys away and breaks your heart.Plus the goslings when they are older, are UGLY
    I do not personally own Canada Geese, though the wild geese will come into my yard and we will feed them apples. They are Cute, but i would never trap them, because i can't keep them. If i had a license i would totally buy some, they would be good flock protectors. Their wings must be clipped when they are young if you don't want them to fly away with the migratory flocks. Many geese have come for generations, all cute and friendly :)

    Some pictures of them:
