James Webb, the founder of Mad Dogs & Englishmen, trains these good boys and good girls for the "seagull patrol dog" gig. During the January trial at the Opera House, 1-2 dogs worked from 12-4pm daily. The seagulls became aware of the dogs' presence after a few weeks, and only one dog is in action at a time now.
“Initially, our dogs had to be everywhere, actively chasing birds away from diners," Webb told BuzzFeed News.
"Now we are in the final weeks of our trial, the birds know they can’t help themselves to food, and it only takes one dog sitting in the shade and coming out to scare away the odd rogue seagull to remind them the seagull patrol is still here.”
