Dear Parrot Lover,
Every parrot owner longs for the day when their parrot can talk back to them. And, contrary to popular belief, all parrots can indeed learn to talk. It simply requires plenty of patience and love. Parrots are very intelligent creatures, more so than dogs and cats. They are able to understand not only short commands, but also longer sentences as well. They can learn to mimic their owners and to use words and phrases at appropriate times as well.
When you begin to train your parrot to talk, you always start out with only one or two new words that you wish your parrot to learn. Try to clearly pronounce your words so that your parrot can easily pick up on the sounds as this will help them to learn faster.
Repeat these words aloud and use it in various sentences and phrases so that your parrot can hear the words being used in varying contexts. Soon your parrot will pick up on those first few words and will repeat them back to you. As soon as he or she does, you should immediately give them lots of praise. This type of encouragement will help to learn more words.
You can eventually progress into teaching your parrot a string of words and phrases, and then ultimately teach your parrot to use those words and phrases to respond to you when you ask him or her certain questions. Having a conversation with your parrot, can be a great conversation piece amongst your guests, not to mention being beneficial to your parrot as well as it will stimulate their minds.
The easiest things to talk about with your parrot are food, toys and treats. Teach your parrot to ask for his treats or toys by name, color or shape. Repeat the names of the treats or toys every time you and your parrot handle them. This will help reinforce the meanings behind the words to your parrot.
Once your parrot has got a good understanding of the words, you can then ask him or her a question, in which the word that your parrot has learnt, is the answer. Practice this type of training and you will soon find that you and your parrot will be having conversations around their toys and treats. Remember to always reward your parrot whenever he or she says the correct answer and give lots of praise.
