Parrot’s unique personality and elegant look is what attracts people to make it as pet. This bird pet is an intelligent creature and trainable. The joy that an owner can get in having a parrot pet is when this bird interacts with its owner during playtime and training or bonding moment. The presence of the parrot in the owner’s life can be fully appreciated by the latter if both spend quality time with each other especially during the training session.

It’s a known fact that parrots are capable of talking and doing tricks, if trained to do so. That’s why excited novice owners are always looking forward on teaching their new pets do some tricks.

The advantage of training your parrot to talk or do tricks is not just limited to the entertainment value that it will show you or your friends.

Training Considerations

When training a parrot, always approach it in a positive way. You need to give rewards for its accomplishment in responding to your training instructions. This act will strongly reinforce the training session you have. Keep in mind though that if the parrot does something undesirable or is not responsive to what you want it to do, you can just ignore it. Don’t punish it and avoid showing any negative reaction to what it did. Just have patience and continue the training. It will surely be able to absorb what you’re teaching in due time.
