Dear Parrot Lover,
The Secrets to Training Your Bird
The two most important starting parts of training
ďWhatís wrong with my bird?Ē you might think from time to time. Why does he scream or bite or just plain not listen? Training a pet parrot can feel like a mystery, especially if itís your first time with a bird. They arenít exactly like working with a dog, but they are very intelligent.
Intelligence is the first key part to training anyone whether itís a bird, dog, or yes, even a human. The smarter the student is the easier it is to train them. With animals itís easiest to train skills that follow the animalís instincts and donít go against something that would be foreign for them. That means you can pretty easily train a bird to use his beak in a number of tricks because birds are inclined to use their beak naturally.
Establishing a good bond and relationship is the next important part of training your bird. We all prefer to learn from teachers we have a good relationship with, and itís no different for the bird. If the bird is new to you, take quality time to build up a positive association between you and the time spent with the bird. He is more inclined to want to learn from you if he feels affectionate towards you.
How to do I get my bird to do what I want?
You also need to understand what comes naturally to your bird. Parrots are very vocal animals and like to use their voices to communicate with birds in their flock. This means he will want to use his voice with you too. It can become a bird who screams if youíre not careful. Birds can also be territorial or easily threatened by novel or new people or things. That means screaming or biting at new people is not an unusual occurrence. Evaluate what bad behaviors you see in your bird and how it might relate to something instinctual for him.
You want to reward the behavior you want to encourage in your bird. Positive reinforcement is the best route to go with your bird. Clickers are an excellent tool for training a parrot or any animal. It lets the bird know what behavior you like and what behavior is rewarded. You can teach new skills, tricks, or even work on bad behaviors you donít like.
