I am really excited about this new blog series we are beginning, sharing the successes of others who have overcome behavioral problems using the Bird Tricks training program. I often see people on the Bird Tricks Facebook page who are still a bit skeptical as to whether or not they should invest in the training program. As we begin this series, I thought I would first share with you my own success story and what converted me into a Bird Tricks fan like yourself. THE PRODUCT: I desperately wanted to have a positive, loving, pet-like relationship with my Three-Cans. I initially purchased the appropriately-named Stop Biting Course in hopes that it would help me to convince Paco to stop biting me!
OBSTACLES I FACED: The main challenge I immediately ran into was that toucans are not parrots.
The Bird Tricks team was super helpful in answering any toucan-related questions I had, as Dave and Jamie also have experience with toucans too. The training program also gave me insight into their bird mindset and psychology and helped me to understand how they might be interpreting my actions. I have since added to my Bird Tricks training library, purchasing the monthly Parrot Magic program, the Spring Horror-mones DVD, as well as the Total Transformation package.
Thank you, I’m glad you like the blog, I’m excited about all of the fun stories ahead! For me, bird training is an on-going process and not something where results are always immediate.
And finally, I watched a video of a Senegal parrot that knows how to do lots of different tricks.
I am always enlivened by all of the great people in the Bird Tricks community who put in the effort to create a happy, healthy life for the companion birds in their care. And not because they paid me to say that, but because I am a proud customer myself who has had a lot of success applying what I have learned in my own situation. Having had no experience in training birds before, some might say that I was in a bit over my head in the beginning. And while I understood the basic principles of positive reinforcement animal training from my experience with dogs, I could tell immediately that birds were completely different in their psychology.


Like a lot of bird owners in this situation, I felt nothing short of desperate for help – and fast. I know – not a surprising revelation, but at first, it almost made me feel like I was set-up for failure because they are so different in behavior than the parrots featured in the training program.
I learned more about the ways I should be interacting with the Three-Cans that would move me towards, not away from, my goals of the relationship I so desired.
I am so satisfied with the quality of the information provided and continue to progress in my training prowess. You will also find videos on how to build trust with your bird (and more importantly, ways not to break the trust you’ve earned). Keep up your caring efforts in your training and the relationship with certainly develop with time. As far as helping your birds gain confidence to come out of the cage, I still think the Stop Biting course would be a great place to start.
Did you know that birds are highly intelligent creatures that can be trained to do all kinds of things?
I graduated college as a Vet Tech in 2007 and have worked with all kinds of animals including cats, dogs, birds, small mammals, and reptiles. I have had Ipo for about 6 mos, he has been at the rescue as I knew I was going to Alaska for a few months and didn't want to take him home and take him back. Find their favourite food that can be rewarded in small pieces then remove it from their dish entirely for 2-Weeks.
These are more of a guideline for when is best to teach certain birds behaviours and manners for life. They learn at the relative same rate throughout their entire lives (allowing for high mimicry in time), you could compare this to how humans learn vs. Cockatiels, Conures, Love Birds, and Macaws) have a window (Between 6 Months to 5 Years) where they learn MUCH more rapidly.
Beyond proper nutrition and veterinary care, I strongly believe that training is THE most important thing you can do to invest in the life of your bird. I found Bird Tricks on You Tube and knew right away that their down-to-earth, easy to understand approach was for me.


This excuse was tempting to give in to, but after realizing my only choice was to try or keep getting attacked, I decided to give the parrot program a go anyway. Touch training also helped me to redirect Paco’s aggression towards me and stop the cycle of his attacks, teaching him that interactions with me could be positive and not so filled with wild stress.
Not only was their behavior improved for the better (no more biting – YAY!!), they just seemed happier and more at peace. It sounds like you need to build a more trusting relationship and help them overcome some of their fears, which the course will definitely give you insight into. I think it's pretty cool how he is able to get his ball out from under the table all by himself. After its past they can still learn although it is much slower and they often return to old habit. The only catch is that YOU have to put in the effort and apply what you learn with your bird. It gives you a TON of great information on where to begin in your training and relationship building and did help me to forge a positive relationship with my formerly aggressive Can, Paco. I found that the root cause of a biting problem anyway is just fear and lack of trust, which will also apply to your situation. Now, I'm a Professional Pet Blogger sharing my adventures and knowledge at my blog, Pawsitively Pets. They are never too old to learn things, if you make them interested in learning, and make it fun & rewarding for them. The reason why Bird Tricks is one of the best out there is because they make it easy and accessible not just for people who have a knack for animal training, but literally ANYONE who tries it can do it. If a five-year-old can do it, if I can do it, then I’m certain you have it in you too.
