Aggressive bird? Or just scared? You want to love your bird but he doesn't seem interested in getting close enough for you to touch him.
Train your pet to behave with positive reinforcement! Clicker training is a proven way to strengthen the bond between you and your pet, as well as teach them how to behave properly. And, it's so fun because birds learn so fast. You'll never regret teaching them how to behave properly, especially when they make you feel like the best parent in the world!
Clicker training is based on positive reinforcement, which means that you will only reward good behaviors, rather than punish bad ones. As time goes on, new behaviors will become more frequent until they become natural responses.
One-person birds warm up to others.
Scared birds learn to cooperate more.
Challenging behaviors like screaming & biting fade away.
Baby birds grow up to be outstanding companions.
Rescued & older birds learn to trust, love, & play.
Clicker training is easy and fun! Just follow the simple guidelines in this book. You'll learn to communicate with your bird - and teach your bird to communicate with you - in ways that you never imagined.
Amazing! My Congo grey female is 17 years old and seldom, if ever, would step up from the top of her cage. 3 hours with the clicker training and she is ready to almost jump off when I say “Step Up!” Thanks so much, great program.
I’ll be brief…. I raised a now 12 yo Catalina Macaw. I had to towel him one day. The next day he was quite angry. And since the incident around 6-7 years ago he bacame a very dangerous bird. His daily goal was to find a way to eat me! I could not handle him, take him out of his cage, shower him, feed him fruits and veggies, provide enrichment of any kind. I couldn’t hang toys in his cage. Naturally, he became impossible to handle. I read Melinda Johnson’s book on clicker training a week or two ago. I got him to gently take an almond from my fingers! I let him out for the first time in years. There was zero effort to attack me. He’s happy again, and I’m thrilled! The next step is to be able to treat him while he’s out of his cage. I do not trust him yet. Then I need to be able to get him on my hand without eating me. I’m not sure to to begin this second phase of training. Thanks for “ listening “! Eric S.
