I have just noticed that someone who has barely any experience in training flighted recall is now offering a course (video and ebook) on how to train your parrot, of any age and condition, to fly and do recall, flighted tricks, etc. With guaranteed results of course, in just X number of days, for any bird, no matter what. Sound familiar?
I think all I have to say at this point is to check out the authors’ actual credentials in the professional training world (not their sparkly photos which suggest that training skill is measured by your need to have your snapshot taken with a celebrity — I guess they’re supposed to be celebrities anyway) and decide for yourself if you want to send them your credit card information.
Apparently you have to train differently depending on your bird’s “personality type.” Zoo trainers should be thrilled to discover this important new information that amateurs were able to discern in a few weeks, in between their copious internet marketing pursuits.
Again, please see the Training Resources page if you want to see what real trainers are offering for companion parrot owners.
