1-on-1 Coaching for Parrot Owners & Parrots with Extreme Problem Behaviours
Parrots are essentially wild animals and not particularly suited to life in our living rooms. Because of their intelligence they are able to adapt to situations and become charming pets especially whilst they are still sexually immature. This is what most owners envisage when they embark on sharing their life with parrots.
However, the reality often turns out to be quite different. Hand reared parrots show a significant propensity for problem behaviour which typically begins to manifest as the animals approach maturity. Combined with keeping conditions that do not fulfill the birds most basic social or physical needs parrots often show extreme problem behaviour.
This can be resolved. However it requires the owners' willingness for deep change. Resolving problem behaviour is not just a matter of training, If that approach is taken, some improvement may initially occur. However, the animal will eventually revert back to problem behaviour, in particular when the training stops. To achieve long term resolution, the bird's total keeping conditions must be addressed.
Coaching is not a magic wand. It requires your work to implement my guidance. In almost twenty years of successfully working with aggressive and screaming parrots I have seen two types of owners:
The type A parrot owners are not willing to do the work or get out of their comfort zones. They expects a done-for-you service. They are mainly interested in their own wants and needs, not the birds. That does not really work. Behaviour does not occur in a vacuum, but is largely determined be the bird's keeping conditions and your behaviour.
If you are not willing to put in the work, please stop reading now. I will not coach you, because doing so would waste your money and my very limited time.
The type B parrot owners view their parrots as family members - as their feathered kids. They are willing to take full responsibility. Their birds' well being is what is most important to them. These owners are willing and able with my help to implement the required changes to shift the entire situation.
They will change the birds' keeping conditions, as required. They will also put in the behaviour modification work needed. These owners - guided by me step-by-step - manifest enormous transformations in their birds' behaviours and relationships with them.
If you are this type of owner, I would love to help you in resolving your parrot problems.
Your first step is to book a discovery call with me.
