Pepper | The Goose Chasin' Border Collie
Pepper the Goose Dog was born on a ranch in Utah and in her early years was trained as a cattle dog. She then went to work with Tim Eubank's Denver-based Zero Geese company, and he fully trained her at her current occupation as a goose dog. She started her career at Pelican Lakes in 2016 and since then has been running approximately 10 miles a day. Several times a day, every day, Pepper sits shotgun in a cart with a golf course employee as they traverse the paths on our 27 holes. She only exits the cart when geese do not vacate the turf, and that's when her hunting skills fully kick in. When she's not goose chasing, Pepper is usually found behind the pro shop counter curled up in a ball, or begging to be pet. The next time you're in the pro shop, welcome Pepper to the family. She's by far our friendliest employee.
