Try a live wire, earthed & insulated, to see if geese will cross it.
Some creatures see a field around the wire & won't cross it. Some do.
Of course you can always use a tiny electric fence if they cannot see
the field then, once trained, turn the electric off. However, it does
not escape my attention that geese fly & many fluffy bunny brigade types
would flame me for even mentioning electric fences. Enjoy!
