From Parrots to Ponies…it’s all Positive!

What can training parrots teach you about training horses? Typically, parrots are considered to need to be dominated and physically controlled. Dr Susan Friedman has been systematically challenging these myths for many years, bringing in science and ethology to the world of parrots. This has extended to her offering great training for all animal owners, vets, behaviour consultants and animal trainers. Her work is a wonderful blend of art and science and we’re delighted that she has accepted our invitation to join our On-Line Conference.

In this deceptively simple video, she explains all the components that need to be in place for great training. It’s easy to watch this and think “yeah, yeah, I know” but why not grab a cup of coffee and spend some time watching it, rewind it, taking notes and really getting it?

Everything you need to know is in these 5 minutes!
