A common complaint heard in the world of parrot training is that the bird is not interested in any food treats. This can be a challenge when trying to train a parrot. How can you train if your parrot won’t take treats? Fortunately there are some tools and techniques that can be used to help increase a parrot’s motivation for treats. These methods don’t have to involve restricting food or putting birds on any special training diet. In addition food is only one type of reinforcer. There are many other types of reinforcers parrot caregivers can use to train their birds.

In this Ebook professional bird trainer Barbara Heidenreich shares a variety of methods parrot caregivers can use to create motivation for reinforcers so that a parrot will be an eager participant in training sessions. She provides solutions to the problem of parrots that won’t take treats. She also demonstrates how non reinforcers can be powerful training tools. You don’t have to rely on food if you don’t want to. You will also learn how motivation is also influenced by a number of different factors, including your training strategy. This Ebook is packed with written information as well as a 42 minute video and two audio presentations. If lack of motivation is putting a stop to your parrot training success, give this Ebook a try.
