Training pet parrots has benefits that extend well beyond the entertainment value of a parrot that can talk and do tricks. Training will strengthen the bond you have with your parrot, who will look forward to the one-on-one attention involved in training sessions, especially when success means lots of praise and attention along with favorite treats. In addition, teaching some simple commands will make handling your parrot easier.
The key to training your parrot is to keep the interaction positive. Three basic concepts provide the basis for parrot training:
Parrot does something good, give a treat.
Parrot does something undesirable, ignore it for a short period of time.
Never physically punish your parrot!
These training aids helps you and your parrot develop a stronger bond by making training sessions fun and enjoyable for both your parrots and yourself.
