He was not tame when I took him in. But we have worked through head scratches and kisses. But no step up.
We play games like soccer on the playtop cage and clang the pots and pans on top. But what I want more than anything, is for him to step up. So after reading several other books and watching endless videos, I decided to give this a try. I have read Rebecca's Parrot For Life, which is a wonderful book, full of practical ideas and interesting techniques.
The Perfectly Trained Parrot was the book I had been waiting for. I needed inspiration and no nonsense approaches to have more fun with my Otis. Within reading the first 20 or so pages and taking the time to digest information, Otis is now stepping up on a stick from inside his cage. I huge step for him and me. A little bit of training each and everyday, I am confident that someday soon, I shall be able to get him on the stick and out his door. He does get plenty out of his cage time.
I keep finding helpful tidbits that hopefully will have him and myself more confident in his development.
Thank you Rebecca for writing a great training tool book. I am sure that within a few months I will have a perfectly trained gentleman. Otis thanks you too
