The Aviator Bird Harness for parrots combines a harness with a leash. The Aviator attaches with a single – no buckles, no clips, no snaps, or heavy hardware for a secure fit. Made from sturdy nylon strapping, the Aviator Bird Harness is flexible enough to be comfortable. The leash allows for some flight and the length can be increased by adding a flight line or even a retractable leash – giving them even more flight distance.
Why We Recommend the Aviator Bird Harness
Most bird harnesses have several buckles and clips making them difficult to figure out how to use. The Aviator Bird Harness has 4 basic steps to putting it on your parrot and nothing requires fastening hooks. The Aviator Bird Harness attaches by a pull tightening system, causing minimal stress during attachment. The design of the Aviator Bird Harness also makes it great for small birds where our bigger fingers make bird harness attachment difficult.
Buy a toy parrot like the one used in the video to learn to quickly put a bird harness on your parrot. The design of the Aviator Bird Harness is simple and the bird harness is easy to use, but practicing on something with moving wings is upsetting. After all, you want your parrot to quickly understand the reward of flight with the Aviator Bird Harness. The first time I put the Aviator Bird Harness on Mandy I was all fumble fingers because I knew theoretically how it went on but was really slow in actually fitting it to my bird. I’d watched the DVD of how to put it on, but I did not have the grace borne of experience those first few times. Mandy, my Orange Wing Amazon Parrot was not happy.
We associate putting the Aviatorbird harness on with outdoor “walk” time for birds or parrots. Once securely on, we always go immediately outside so that our parrots associate this bird harness with a fun outdoor activity including flight and socialization. Parrots quickly learn that they get to go outside when they see you get the Aviator Bird Harness on.
As a bird owner, I cannot say enough good things about the Aviator Bird Harness. This product is highly recommended as attested by the smiling feathers around Mandy and Peachy’s beaks.
