Many parrot and other pet owners have rather mixed feelings when it comes to new year’s and other public celebrations. Of course any party is great. But fireworks can be really scary to our beloved animals. They could be stressed or even injure themselves in panic. Fireworks parrot training is the solution.

Greenwing Macaws Bathing

When greenwing macaw Jack first came to live with me he hated bathing. Hard to imagine when you see him in this video, isn’t it?

Being a parrot trainer, I taught him to take showers in many little training steps that were strung together after he learned each one of them.

Now, he loves bathing…

If you would like to learn how to teach your parrots with clicker training – please read my books.

Dremeling the Beak

Jack, my Greenwing Macaw, has lost a large part of his upper beak as a baby. Because of this, his lower beak grows “wild” and needs to be trimmed regularly. After a harrowing experience at the vets where Jack collapsed from stress, I decided, “never again”. I used clicker training to teach Jack to allow me to dremel his beak without stress.

The "Come" Command

In this video, my Greenwing Macaw Lizzie is trained to “come” to me when called. This is another basic obedience lesson that all parrot trainers should teach their students.

Enjoy and have fun training,

The "Up" & "Down" Commands

The bird school | 6. The "up" & "down" commands

In this video, my Greenwing Macaw Lizzie trains her first basic obedience exercises: The “Up” and “Down” commands. Any parrot trainer ought to know how to teach his feathered students at least some basic well-behaved-parrot exercises, such as these.

For more details please refer to my book: The Bird School. Clicker Training for Parrots and Other Birds.

The Obstacle Course

In this video, my Greenwing Macaw Lizzie is taught to run through an obstacle course. This is an important lesson for parrot trainers who are training with birds that are easily scared. It allows especially the more sensitive parrot types such as Budgerigars and African Greys to lose their fear of new objects more swiftly.

For more details please refer to my book: The Bird School. Clicker Training for Parrots and Other Birds.

Enjoy and have fun training,

Treat Testing for Clicker Training

In this video, my Greenwing Macaw hen Ms. Lizzie shows the treat testing exercise. This is an important prerequisite to clicker training. All parrot trainers should take this step before starting with the actual training.

Lizzie joined out flock in late November, 2010. Being busy, I have not had the time to start training with her. But this weekend I decided that it would be fun to tape her training efforts and share them with you. We had our first session today and Lizzie did really well. So, here is the first video I made: Testing Lizzie’s favourite treat.
