    Wonderful Training Book for Parrot People This book offers feasible, effective methods of dealing with many of the problems that are common in companion parrots. It describes the problem, possible causes, and then clearly outlines options for dealing with them. The book is short and gets to the point. It is very well worth the $15!Barbara Heidenreich has years of experience as a free flight educational trainer in zoological settings, and continues to train for shows and programs in the US and beyond! I’ve taken one of her seminars and it, too, was very worthwhile.

    Great Advice for a Great Price! This book does a superb job of addressing many of the common problems that people create or encounter with companion parrots. These are the very issues which cause birds to lose their homes, and are most often simply the result of how people act or react. It is WONDERFUL to see POSITIVE reinforcement techniques in print in a book that is perfect for many on-the-go households. Unfortunately, many stores still recommend horrible, ineffective, and negative punishing type responses. Perhaps this manageable book will put a stop to such unsound advice. Great price for great advice, and we will definitely recommend it to our Phoenix Landing membership in the Washington DC area! ([…]

    Excellent book for problem behaviors and positive reinforcement When your bird is screaming, or biting, or pulling feathers, you’re looking for an effective and easy way to understand the problem and work with it.With an easy-to-read format and easy-to-understand writing style, this book is a MUST have for companion parrot owners, and the people that work with them. Excellent easy reference for veterinary staff and shelter workers. It’s a great place to get hooked on positive reinforcement as a teaching/training technique. And, contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to get bitten when you are working with your bird!The ideas presented are straight forward, and realistic to implement. I reccomend this book to my students, and most of my behavior clients as a great place to get started.
