This article will talk about how to train a lovebird and 3 fun tricks you can teach your lovebird. There are a lot more tricks that you can teach them, but the tricks below are a few basic ones you can start with. Before starting your lovebird tricks training you will want to be comfortable handling your bird, especially if they have any behavioral issues, like biting or fearfulness; it is important to address these things before attempting to teach them the tricks below.

1. Wave: A lovebird can learn many tricks, but if you are just getting started you should start with something simple like the wave. To train them to do the wave, simply ask them to wave and help them hold their foot up. Reward their behavior and keep doing this until they have lifted it on their own. You can reward them with praise and/or treats, just remember to be consistent with the rewards and pretty soon all you will have to do is say the word “wave” and they will do it.

2. Spin: Once you have successfully taught them to wave, you can move on to doing a spin. To get them to spin, use something as a focal point, like a pencil, and have your bird follow the pencil around in a circle. As they turn, say the word “spin” and reward them after they have gone all of the way around. Do this many times until your bird starts to catch on and will do the spin on their own.

3. Flip: A flip may or may not be possible at first; some birds do them on the perch and others can do it while laying in your hand. If you use the hand technique, you will first have to get them lying comfortably on their back in the palm of your hand. To do this, start small and tilt your bird varying degrees with lots of love after each tilt. Once they are comfortable on their back, help them flip over by pushing gently on their tail. Say the word as they go over and reward with a treat each time. With a lot of practice, your bird will start doing this trick on their own when you say the word “flip”.

This article talked about how to train a lovebird and 3 tricks you can start to teach your lovebird today, provided that you have a bird that you can handle with confidence. Some lovebirds have issues that need to be dealt with before any tricks can be attempted; biting or aggressive behavior must be fixed first before tricks can be taught. Once you are comfortable with your bird, teaching them to wave, spin or even do a flip should be fairly easy to do.
