Clicker Training for Birds helps you
Many newcomers to companion parrots don't realize how intelligent these birds are and, consequently, how much mental stimulation they require to prevent boredom, a primary cause of behavioral problems. Bored birds develop behavior problems such as screaming, feather picking, biting and regurgitating that often leads to re-homing.
Clicker Bird Training techniques have helped many companion parrot owners tame their birds and learn important social skills like how to play, trust and love people again. But, more than that, Clicker Training for Birds is crammed full of proven techniques to train parrots to play games and perform tricks. Mentally stimulated parrots tend to seek out ways to please you instead of engaging in problem behaviors such as screaming and biting.

Clicker Training for Birds is not just about teaching parrot tricks, it gives YOU parrot training skills to use so that you can build trust with a scared or overly independent bir., Even un socialized or second hand birds respond to Clicker Training for Birds and become good birds. The more you work on gaining your parrots trust, the fewer parrot behavior problems you'll have with your parrot. Problem behaviors such as biting, screaming and feather picking fade away. As your parrot learns what you want it to do, it will feel a stronger bond with you. It will trust you more. The trust and confidence in you lets the bird pursue behaviors that get rewards rather than problem behaviors that are not rewarded.
Bird training is especially important for parrots who are left alone during the day while you are at work. Since parrots are sensitive, flock oriented animals they become lonely and bored when left alone in a cage all day. Loneliness and boredom lead to parrot behavior and emotional problems. Left to their own devices, without the stimulation of bird toys, proper parrot training and socialization or "company," a parrot may ventilate frustration by screaming, feather picking or self-mutilation and biting. Even parakeets require company and mental stimulation each day.
Bird training is even more critical with parrots that are left alone for a good part of their day. Why? Because positive bird training provides mental stimulation and socialization for all parrots. Parrots love to practice some of the skills that they learned in parrot training when you are not watching - so parrot training actually gives your parrot something to thing about during the day while you are gone.
