The previously uncontrolled beaches were now controlled by dogs.
After noticing a pattern of when gulls arrived on beaches, Alm and Gehring changed their method in the second summer. In , dogs controlled beaches seven days a week from dusk until dawn, Alm said. She and Gehring noticed birds arriving after sunrise and returning before sunset.
The next year, they had dogs control beaches only at peak arrival times to harass them in larger abundance, Alm said. The researchers positioned themselves in the central section of beaches while keeping the dogs under voice and whistle command, Gehring said.

Because of their natural instinct to prey on gulls, minimal training is needed for collies, said Shayna Taylor, kennel manager and staff biologist at Wild Goose Chase , a goose and pest control business. Dogs making eye contact with gulls scares them away, Taylor said. The act of staring down gulls and slowly creeping toward them will make them feel like they're about to be hunted.
In the beginning of training, collies are on a foot leash, Taylor said. Once a dog has been fully trained and trusted to come back, they roam free.
In Wisconsin, the Milwaukee County Parks Department has experienced better water quality due to collies controlling gulls for 30 hours each week, according to TMJ4 Milwaukee. The third bedroom is located on the top floor in the former attic space: a wonderful dual-aspect room which offers views to the harbour at one end and to the breakwater from the other.
There is a double bed in this room, as well as a seating area in front of one of the windows, and a TV. Across the landing is the master bathroom which, again, has a shower-over-bath and WC.
