  2. 2. How To Train Your Parrot To Talk We all want a talking parrot. A parrot who can talk around the house is a lot of fun. It is not only a charming thing, but makes a great companion. However, teaching your parrot to talk can be difficult or time consuming if you don't know how to do it properly. You will need an patience and some other traits that I will talk about in the following hub. Anyone looking to train their parrot to talk should heed the following advice: Start early- Teaching your parrot to talk should begin immediately. It will take a lot of time for him or her to learn how to talk, so be sure that you begin early. Be Consistent- train your parrot during the time time and days every week. However, be careful not to over train your parrot. If she is not that interested in being trained for that day or loses interest, you are better off quitting and coming back later or the next day. Give your parrot time to relax and understand what they've learn. And never force them to train when they are not in the mood. Positive Reinforcement- You should reward your parrot generously when he says what you want. Some rewards include treats, petting, or giving him his favorite toy along with pleasant praise. This will reinforce the behaviors you want from your bird. Doing so will also build a relationship between you and your parrot. Be loving- You want to be a personal tutor to your parrot, teaching him sayings and songs that you sing or speak to him.  Although there are great recordings out there, keep in mind  that it's not only about teaching him to speak. It's also about him feeling good about pleasing you. If your parrot feels great about pleasing you, then it becomes more interested in learning how to talk. Repetition Is Key- It will take some time for your bird to learn the words you speak to him, and you should say them even when you think he is not learning. When your parrot speaks about an object, bring that object to him so that he can understand it better.  Something that helps is to teach you about certain daily activities.  So that every time you have lunch or walk into the house you say "welcome!" or "lunch time".  This will help you to be consistent with your teaching.  Over time your bird will begin to say these things during the appropriate times. Enjoy the process- Don't stress yourself about your parrot not learning fast enough. Every parrot is different in how long it may take them to learn something and in personality.  If you think your bird is not learning fast enough, you should allow yourself to get angry.  Just be patient. Don't forget to take care of your parrot's health and keep its enclosure tidy. A healthy parrot will learn faster and be easier to teach. Visit Us At http://parrotandbirdtraining.com
  3. 3. How To Stop Your Parrot's Biting in 7 Days Does your parrot bite you often and aggressively? How would you like to learn some proven methods that will get your parrot to stop biting you? If so, you’re about to discover how to get rid of your parrot’s biting, using a strategy I learned called “Target Training”. If you have never heard of "Target Training", don't worry. Most parrot training experts have been standing on their pulpits screaming “if we just loved our parrots more, they’d start to be nice” – what a bunch of crap! What they're saying could not be farther from the truth. When you first bought your parrot, it was hand fed and was cute, cuddly, and not strong enough to bite. It may have even stayed that way for a few months or even years. But then it hit its "terrible twos" phase. This is a time where your parrot wanted to test its limits and see how far it could go. It's also a time of puberty for your bird, and its hormones are on a rampage. It wants a mate, and just like your teens it can be hard to handle all at once. Instead of wishing for a magic pill for the behavior to go away, you should concentrate on strengthening the level of communication with your bird. And “Target Training” focuses on building the level of communication between you and your parrot. It develops a level of communication with your parrot that both of you can understand. This is how it works. Using cues, you train your parrot to obey simple commands from you. You then reward your parrot after he follows these cues, and he quickly learns that if he wants a treat he'll follow the cues. The more cues, or commands, you teach to your parrot, the deeper the level of communication and the more your parrot will bond with you, and stop biting you. The first step in "Target Training" is teaching your parrot to touch the end of a small wooden stick, or wooden dowel. You then reward your parrot every time it touches the end of the stick by giving him a tasty treat. Over time, your parrot will realize that you’re in charge, and that you’re building a new level of communication to him that he never knew existed. He’ll start to acknowledge that if he follows your orders, and steps on the the end of the dowel like you’ve asked him to, that you’ll reward him generously.

  4. 4. How To Stop Your Parrot From Screaming For thousands of years parrots have used screaming as means of communication over large distances. If you've ever seen a documentary about the jungle, you've no doubt heard the scream and calls of parrots and other birds in the forest. So it should come as no surprise, although it is irritating, when the parrot performs the same behavior in your living room...at 5 in the morning. Screaming is normal behavior, excessive screaming is not. A parrot with a screaming problem who lives with you can be an absolute nightmare. And if you live in an apartment, it can be difficult for your neighbors as well. You may even be evicted or forced to giveaway your parrot. So, there is no doubt that a screaming parrot is a BIG problem for many owners. Some parrots may scream in the mornings as a cry for food, and in the evenings to be fed as well. While other parrots scream because they do not like the company in the room, and only shut up when the person is gone. When this happens the parrot is learning that screaming is a method that it can use to get what it wants. If it screams it gets fed, you come into the room, you "call" back so that it knows its flock is in the other room, or gets that person or object that scares it out of the room. This learned behavior of screaming to get what it wants will continue to happen until the parrot learns that excessive screaming only leads to bad consequences. The trick to stopping a screaming parrot is to teach it that it will be better rewarded by staying quiet. You should reward good behavior and ignore the bad behavior. Sounds simple enough, but it takes a little dedication to get it to work and patience, lots of it. The first step in the process is to identify what you are doing or what is happening when the parrot starts screaming. Does someone you know, another pet, or a stranger walk into the room and gets the parrot screaming? Do you go back into the room when the parrot screams? Do you approach the bird and give him a treat so he can be quiet? Or take him out of his cage? Are you covering the bird cage when he screams? What about playing with the bird? These are all perceived as rewards by the bird. So stop doing that when he is screaming! You'll want to ignore your parrot when they are screaming or performing any undesirable behaviors. Step three is to pick a sound you like: talking, whistling, or anything think is your bird can do and be rewarded for. When your parrot makes that particular sound, you reward it with a treat. When you hear it give your bird a treat and verbally praise your pet. You are making that noise far more rewarding than screaming. Not long after you consistently reward the good behavior, they will quit their screaming. Along with rewarding your parrot when it makes desirable sounds and ignoring the screaming, you want to make sure your parrot has plenty to do. Offer plenty of bird toys and foraging toys to stimulate both the bird's brain and trim its beak. Also make sure your parrot has plenty of time out of his bird cage and time on a parrot play gym and with you. Need more help with this method? Get step-by-step instructions and video here.
