Playing with Parrots in Towels

Published on Aug 17, 2014
I often hear people say you should just “play” with your bird in a towel to help them become accustomed to restraint in a towel for veterinary care. However it is very important hat your bird is actually having fun in the towel. This means not forcing the towel on the bird or chasing. Make sure your bird is having a good time and you will make towels something to enjoy instead of fear. In this clip you can see my macaw Blu Lu thinks towels are a blast thanks to force free animal training. You can learn more on how to train your bird to be comfortable with towel restraint, allow nail trims, get on a scale and more in the DVD Train Your Parrot for the Veterinary Exam available at this link…
