Parrots are very smart and can be taught a huge variety of bird tricks. Well socialized parrots enjoy bird training sessions and find the interaction, itself, to be a “reward.” Some birds need more coaxing to engage or trust in bird training sessions. Bird training treats are an proven way to coax reluctant birds, accelerate the learning process and increase positive behavior.

Insure Bird Treats are Viewed As “Special”
Choose a bird treat that your bird has a passion for and use it exclusively for bird training. Popular bird treats are nuts and fruits, however, some birds love a particular seed.  Once you discover what treat your bird is passionate about, keep it “special” by storing it in a special container and in an area that you’ve designated as your Bird Training Area.  Only show it to your bird during bird training sessions. Your goal is to insure that your bird becomes passionate about bird training. The bird treats container will serve as a visual reminder of positive, fun training.  Seeing the bird treat container will create a sense of eager enthusiasm and attention.
