There is a wide variety of parrots available to choose to own as pets. However, many choose parrots specifically for their ability to mimic, speak, and accomplish tricks. To best entertain, choosing the right breed of parrot, providing that parrot with a loving, stable environment, and keeping trick training sessions short, but routine will allow parrot owners to make their parrots the best trick performers they can be.
When teaching a parrot owners need to keep the training sessions short. They do not want to tire the parrot out and cause the session to be a negative experience for the bird. Owners also keep their training sessions positive and do not start a training session until they are both ready. Training in a quiet and a room free of distractions will only increase the chances of success. Another good tip is to make sure that the room is well lit and that your parrot is comfortable in that room. Owners need to be stress free when starting to train parrots. Not having enough patience with the parrot will affect the way the parrot learns.
It's also important when purchasing a parrot to choose one that has been hand reared by a reputable breeder. Hand rearing allows for routine owner and parrot contact to occur from birth. This routine contact while feeding will ensure that the parrot you purchase will have been used to being held, handled, and touched. A parrot must trust their owner enough to take food directly out of an owner's hand. A parrot must be tame and ready to be handled before any trick training routine can commence.
Next, it is necessary to establish a trick training room. The trick training room must be a room that the parrot has previously been allowed to explore, a room the parrot feels comfortable in. This room must be a quiet room, free from distractions such as other parrots, children, television, or phones. A room that is quiet and comfortable is important. When trick training, an owner will need their parrot's complete attention. Eliminating stress like excessive noise will aid in having the parrot's complete trick learning attention.
Trick training sessions should be kept short. Parrots are curious creatures that can bore easily. Keeping trick training at a routine time, for a short period of time, will increase success rates. It will also decrease the risk of frustration for both parrot and owner. Tricks such as "Step Up", "Turn Around", and "Bow" are basic tricks that can be learned quickly. There are many comprehensive videos, CDs, and books available to assist in the trick
As with training ayn pet, you have to remember that consitency is what will pay off in the end. Do not give up and abandon the training and even worde, do not lose your temper with your parrot companion. Taking the effort to properly train the parrot wiill result in a long happy and fulfilling relationship with your parrot.
