MELBOURNE September 2017:  Parrot Training and Behaviour Workshop
​​
In this one-day workshop we will begin by comparing wild and captive parrot behaviour, how to read it and how this applies to training and behaviour modification, and cover setting up for desired behaviour including diet, environment and interactions. Next we will dive into training core foundation behaviours, including fear-free handling, taming, crating, targeting,  recall, flight training and preparing for stress free medical procedures. We will practice shaping behaviour with demonstration parrots, and learn about common problem behaviours, and discuss how to assess and correct them.

This workshop is designed to suit a range of different skill levels—from first time companion parrot owners, to those who work with animals professionally such as behaviour consultants, keepers and those that work in the veterinary professions. If you want to broaden your understanding of parrot behaviour, learn how to train and correct problem behaviours, and participate in interactive training demonstrations with parrots, then this  workshop is for you!
