BTT: How to Discipline Your Pet Parrot

Pretty sure my goal next week is that Dave is the screen capture picture…

Anyway! Happy Tuesday, everyone!

This week’s Tuesday video is on the topic of the best discipline to use for your parrot(s). We got asked a ton of stuff this week about how to get your bird to not destroy this, not do that, not be mean to this, not go over there, not get into that…

So we thought we’d conquer the area of discipline for parrots.

We were pretty much kicked out of the theater this week because of a new cast install but in the future we will be able to show you examples in training our birds live – and demonstrate more of what we mean with our methods. We had intended to do so this week and just couldn’t get the theater time before upload day!

Also, my phone broke so our behind the scenes clips were few and far between because we hadn’t realized till we tried to import the footage and it was dark and fuzzy! Boo. New iPhone for me soon!

Congrats to Brenda Martin! Her question was actually emailed into us ( and was about how to safely and effectively socialize her bird with her dogs (her bird has attacked her dogs before and luckily they did nothing about it!) I couldn’t screen capture her email but I did screen capture her follow up comment on our blog – she’s the winner for being so engaged, and so aware of the danger yet ability to work through this issue with both animals. I really applaud how she had safety as her number one, but that she also wants everyone to live under the same roof confidently like many people can relate to. I thought her questions and concerns were valid and that that many people could relate to needing to work through something similar. Thanks, Brenda!

Please leave your comments below. Next week’s video is likely going to be on the topic of flight, flight training, free flight, and how to keep a flighted bird’s attention so it doesn’t fly off during training. Please post related questions to this in the comments so we can make sure to answer yours!



First of all, NO creature should be referred to as an “IT”. All creatures are individuals. Second, creatures do not belong in theaters, magic acts, circuses or any other situation where they are being exploited. Humans have no right to enslave other creatures and use them for any reason. They belong in their own habitat and should only be given medical care and/or safety if needed until they can be reintroduced to their environment. What kind of perversion is this? Do you really think a creature with wings or any creature belongs in a cage or a basement or a house? Do you want to spend your life in a cage? Would you want your wings clipped if you had them? If you could fly all over the earth would you want to be stuck inside? In a cage? Do you want to be told what to do, where to go, what to eat, who to live with and what conditions to live under your entire lives? They are no different. Other creatures have much to teach us but we have nothing to teach them especially not our foul language. We should look to them as powers of example. We have nothing to teach but greed and destruction. What a plague the human race is upon the earth.


I love your video’s. Now if I can get my bird ’Mr T" to eat fruits & vegies.
