Muffin and Tauzer are two of our seagull-chasing superstars. They are successfully removing seagulls from the Sydney Opera House, a problem that has plagued diners for decades.

Our trained dogs and handlers understand the behaviour of the seagulls, and know exactly what to do to keep them away. Our dogs are trained specifically to chase seagulls and are super social with people.

Reasons to use Seagull Patrol

  • Reduce the amount of refunds due to seagulls knocking over glasses and stealing customers food.
  • Increase Revenue - Ornithophobia is a fear of birds and is something 1% of the population suffer from and the 16th biggest phobia on the planet! Imagine that one person in a hundred not bringing their family to your restaurant! We get people telling us right through the day how grateful they are we are there and how scared they are of birds.
  • Novelty Value! People love seeing the dogs at work, and we can't go five minutes without people coming up to ask us about the dogs or take a photo! Also, while the seagulls are away, we are happy for the public to give them a pat. 
  • At the Opera House there have numerous attempts to scare the birds away, including mechanical hawks and food covers. Nothing worked until Mad Dogs & Englishmen arrived with Muffin and Tauzer.
