For all those restaurants and councils struggling with a seagull problem, there could be a work around in the form of six figure canine solution. 

The Sydney Opera House has just renewed a contract with a border collie and kelpie dog training company after four years running along the restaurant strip to scare away seagulls.  

The contract is worth a bit more than $375,000. 

Oamaru have had a seagull problem for years now and they've tried everything from spikes, laser cannons and raptor noise devices but nothing has worked.  

Waitaki mayor Gary Kircher joined Mike Hosking.
