Training pet parrots has a lot of benefits like. Teaching some simple commands to handle your parrot easier and strengthening the bond  with your parrot. It is not only the entertainment when a parrot   can talk and do tricks.  Of course the success of training parrots process means lots of praise and attention together with favorite treats.

Keep it Positive
It is very important for the success. There are three principles for parrot training:

  1. If your parrot does something well–> give him a reward
  2. If he  does something unwell–> ignore it
  3. Never punish your parrot

In training parrots process your goal is simple- if your parrot behaves the proper way, give him a reward   like a favorite food treat or a play session and ignore for bad things.   Also even a simple praise or a treasured toy are good motivation for some birds. Do not forget to ignore the bird if the parrot is doing something undesirable. A negative reaction is also attention so if your parrot desires your attention he will accept it as  a reward  . He may think that negative attention is better than no attention. Ignoring is much better decision and  the undesirable behavior will   stop soon. This bellow is what your approach training has to be in order to keep the process positive:

  • Train  your bird only when you feel relaxed because the  training takes patience!
  • Choose a time when your bird is attentive and not distracted by preening, eating, or household activities.
  • Short, frequent training sessions like a few minutes at a time divided into several times a day are more effective.
  • Pick a particularly  favorite reward
  • When your bird does something well, don’t give a treat every time otherwise your bird will do it if   you have a treat handy.
  • End every session on a positive way like giving a treat for a good try or  a successful attempt, and move on to something else.
  • Training sessions should be funny for your bird.

Very Basic Training Parrots: Step Up and Step Down
Choose one or  two things to teach your parrot.  They could be training your parrot to step up onto your wrist or finger or even a perch which you are holding in your hand on command, and then he has to step back off again. These are   easy but  important skills to teach. Stepping up on command is generally easy  to train as it is  a natural movement for a bird   (stepping down is a bit more difficult  to teach). If you teach your bird to step up and step down on command it will make handling much easier and   you will be able to set some boundaries for your bird. Then  you can   return  the bird back to its playgym or cageor  remove  him easily   from areas of  home that are not bird-proofed .Even if you have a baby bird to start early with the step up and step down commands is still a good idea .  It allows you to give lots of positive reinforcement and it is a good foundation for training your parrots into more skills to in the future.
