Consequences of Confrontational Parrot Training Methods
Science Daily (Feb.. 18, 2009) — In a new, year-long University of Pennsylvania survey of dog owners who use confrontational or aversive methods to train aggressive pets, veterinary researchers have found that most of these animals will continue to be aggressive unless training techniques are modified. The story went on to say that using non-aversive or neutral training methods such as additional exercise or rewards elicited very few aggressive responses.
Bird Training Take-Aways:
- Study Parrot Training Techniques from books or bird training DVD's
- "Force" training never works
