I had a gaggle of geese, but Aflac I named after obviously the commercial. He tended to have mood swings that jolted his head and made him jump just like the Aflac goose in the commercial. He was more of a loner. Most of the time the rest of the gaggle followed him. This was most likely due to the dominance he drew from the rest of the gaggle. Seeing that I was also a dominant Alpha male, I had to assume my boundaries over him. This gave me authority and the ability to take control of him rather than him taking control of me. These are hard animals to train especially when they are part of their gaggle. Most of it is behavioral and knowing how to do what you need by making the right steps.
