Parrots Need Training

parrotIf you adopt a puppy, training is probably the first thing on your mind. If a dog doesn’t walk right on his dog leash, it’s because he hasn’t been trained. It’s the same for parrots, maybe even more so. Training is a way that you learn to have a two way conversation with your parrot.

Spending some time to teach your parrot a few tricks like stepping up and going into his cage or carrier, gives you the opportunity to pay attention to your little birds body language. This is key. It helps birds learn how to learn. Parrots that understand that if they do something right, they will get a treat or get your attention. They will discover ways to get those treats. A parrot owner who trains their parrot is more mindful of rewarding for things your parrot enjoys rather then giving treats for behavior that they don’t enjoy. This makes for a pet bird that is not only a great companion, but a happy parrot that enjoys interacting with its household.
