Cooper is trained to run toward geese and scare them off before they can be-fowl (hehehe) the area. Snatching food from golf carts is something he taught himself.
Cooper, an important golf course staff member, belongs to Dan Trubisky, the club’s athletic grounds specialist.
Before Cooper came, some of the areas were covered with goose poop making a very messy situation. Golfers had to walk around it and putt through it. “Cooper has really solved the problem,” according to one golfer.
Ducks and swans also inhabit the golf course, but Cooper leaves them alone. He has learned to distinguish other waterfowl from geese and concentrates only on the messy geese. Cooper doesn’t actually catch them. He just scares them away when they land.
Cooper rarely interferes with golfers, except for the occasional sniffing out food from golf bags thing. But even then the golfers don’t seem to mind.
"I got him for the geese, but I also really wanted a dog," Trubisky said. "It's nice to be able to bring him to work, and the golfers seem to love him." Source
