New service:
Board and Train: As a Certified Professional Bird Trainer, I can work on any training goals you may have for your bird, whether it is to decrease biting, increase step ups, teach them to recall to you, learn tricks (like ring toss, etc…), learn to accept grooming without restraint, learn to be comfortable being restrained, diet changes, and more. Just ask and we will come up with a training plan together to achieve your goals. This service can be added on for a daily fee. This training is above and beyond the basic training I do with all client birds for management and safety purposes. I also offer private bird training consults in your home or mine, and skype consults as well.
