- Stop stressful aggressive behavior
- Bring relief from feather plucking, picking, and self-mutilation
About Private Pet Bird Training
Learn how to train your bird like a pro
Though no longer legally wild-caught, parrots are technically tamed wild animals. Most species are only a few generations removed from their natural habitat and are still learning to adapt to ours.
Our in-home bird training program focuses on helping your bird live happily and successfully in your home. You’ll learn how to stop unwanted bird behavior, replace it with behavior you enjoy, and keep your bird’s brain occupied and out of trouble.
If you’re like most of our clients, you’ll also catch the bird training bug. (Say that 5 times fast!) Your new training skills can be put to all kinds of use, like training groovy bird tricks to impress your dinner guests.
But first, let’s get your bird problems solved and restore peace to your household.
Private bird training details
- All bird training begins with an initial in-home assessment to set goals and design your customized bird training plan.
- 60-90 minute Initial Consultation fee: $250
- Due to an increase in no-call, no-shows during the era of COVID, 1/2 of the consult fee will be due when you make your appointment. Thank you for your consideration of other pet owners who would like that appointment spot.
Please note that private bird training has gone virtual due to COVID-19, unless your parrot would be comfortable visiting us at our training center. This actually works better in many cases, since birds often tend to become shy when the trainer comes over anyway. We may ask you to take video of your bird’s unwanted behavior when you make your appointment.
“With Joanna’s help Butters calmed down…”
“When I rescued an unruly Quaker parakeet I had my work cut out for me. I was fortunate to meet Joanna of Fur and Feather Works. With Joanna’s help Butters calmed down and would let people sit peacefully in the same room without eating them. I definitely recommend anyone who has a bird or who is interested in getting a bird talk to Joanna.” – Butters’ mom Ruby, condensed from her Yelp review
