Arthur and Rudolph Valonen, will attempt to use trained dogs to keep birds out of blueberry plantings on their pick-your-own farm. The goal is to find a lower-cost effective alternative to netting, which can cost more than $3,000 an acre. The Valonen’s will determine which breed of dog is most suited to this work.
