Training Made Easy

Dear Parrot Lover,

If your parrot exhibits any unwanted behaviors or has any bad habits, you will definitely need to train your parrot to obey you before those behaviors and habits spiral out of control. All bad behaviors and habits can be trained out of a parrot - all you need is the proper knowhow and plenty of patience.

Training Tips:

Because training a parrot requires patience, it is important for you to only begin a training session when you are calm and relaxed.

Make sure that neither you nor your parrot will be distracted by anything, such as the TV, cellphone and other family members or pets.

Learn to read you parrot’s body language so that you can more easily identify when your parrot is stressed, and also when to avoid a bite that may be imminent. Your parrot’s body language is the only way in which your parrot can truly communicate with you. And if your parrot is too stressed out, he will not learn anything during a training session as he will be too busy stressing and being scared. If you find that your parrot is stressing, try to calm him down by offering him his favorite treat.

Always use positive reinforcement when training your parrot. As soon as your parrot does obey your command or does something, you should immediately give him a treat or other type of reward, such as genuine praise. But if your parrot is misbehaving, it is best to simply ignore his antics. Your parrot desperately wants your undivided attention, and so he will quickly learn that certain behaviors grant your attention, whilst others do not - he’ll soon learn the difference.

Never, ever punish your parrot. Even negative attention, in the form of a punishment, is still considered by your parrot to be attention and punishing your parrots will make him get used to the negative attention which can cause your parrot to continue his naughty behavior.

Always keep your parrot’s training sessions short, sweet and to the point. This is just as much for your own sanity as it is for your parrots, as parrots have relatively short attention spans.

After the training session is done, allow your parrot to return to his cage or play stand for a few minutes of quiet playtime.

Always practice patience. Just like you, your parrot has a very unique personality and this will play a large part in their training. Do not become discouraged - it will take quite a few training sessions for your parrot to understand exactly what it is that you are training him to do.

Dear Parrot Lover,

Parrots spend a vast majority of their time standing on their feet; because of this, it is very important that your parrot has a variety of safe and comfortable perches in their cage.

The best perch for your parrot should be easy on their feet, fun for them to use, safe for them to chew on and preen, appropriately textured and, of course, very easy to clean. It is best to provide your parrot with an assortment of perches that are placed at various heights throughout their cage. It is also a very good idea to have these perches be of differing diameters and made of different materials as this helps to ensure proper exercise and foot health for your parrot.

At a bare minimum, there should be at least 3 perches in your parrot’s cage that each has a different diameter. These different diameters will help to relax and stretch your parrot’s feet. These three perches must also be created using diverse materials such as wood, concrete and rope.

Rope perches are a favorite of any parrot! Not only are you able to purchase them in varying diameters to fit any size parrot foot, but they can also be purchased in different shapes and overall lengths and sizes. Rope perches can easily be attached to almost any point inside your parrot’s cage; and with the bendable perches such as the bungee styles, you can actually change up the shape of the perch whenever you or your bird gets bored with its current shape.

Rope perches can often be used as a swing for parrots, provided that they are not the bungee style. You can even get creative and tie a few colorful pieces of cotton yarn or fleece at various intervals on the rope perch so that your parrot has something to preen.

When choosing a rope perch, buy one that is created using 100% cotton and that also has a relatively smooth surface without any loose ends or fibers. These can be dangerous for your parrot because they can get their toe stuck in the rope and they can hurt themselves if they were to panic.

The best thing about most rope perches is that when they get really soiled, you can simply place them in your washing machine or dishwasher to clean, making sure that you do not use any harmful detergent.

Have you ever tried to get inside your bird’s head and figure out what he is thinking?

It’s only human to try and guess what his squawks add up to! What I’ve noticed when watching birds is that they absolutely love to have new and interesting things to do. Why?

The answer is easy: birds are intelligent creatures! The more new or varied stuff, the better it is for their brains and bodies. And, it doesn’t have to be just toys jangling about the cage either.

Beyond the Toys

When we talk about bringing fun to your bird, everyone automatically thinks about toys. Toys are good, and they are vital, but it’s not the only choice.

Birds love to climb and use their feet. What is really interesting about perching birds is the way their feet work. If you watch closely, they are almost hand like. The bird uses them to climb, hold on, pick things up, etc. It’s this reason that perches are an integral part of your bird’s life.

We all know what the standard perch looks like that comes in the cage: just a bar to extend from one end to the other. Unfortunately, this doesn’t stimulate your bird’s desire to climb and roam at varying levels. But, if you use a bendable rope perch, it gives you the option to continually change it up. You can use more than one; you can bend and twist, or even intertwine them. Plus, the feel of the rope is a more natural texture for your bird’s feet to grab hold of.

Stimulate His Mind

We all know the saying ‘bird brain,’ and it is normally used in a not-so-positive way, but really we should think of being a ‘bird brain’ as a positive thing! These parrots are incredibly intelligent animals that get easily bored. This is why they often make up their own naughty entertainment.

Rope perches are an excellent way to help prevent boredom in your bird and allow him to use his mind. You can change the rope perches as often as you want to give him new ways to move and always keep his environment fresh for him.

This type of stimulation helps stave off behavior problems that can occur in captive birds due to boredom. Plus, these perches are appropriate for all sizes of birds from the small to the big so no one is left out!
