Throw it with a string on it , tease the dog, make it fun. Jealousy works wonders. Take an expweienced dog and throw a goose for it. Keep the other two on a leash. Make a big deal of the other dog when it brings the goose in. Do this a couple of times. Now keep the other dog at heel, throw the goose, and turn one or BOTH of the others loose and see what happens.
A goose is a large and intimidating bird. Don't get upset. Take it easy and let nature take it's course.
