Here at Parrot Kindergarten, we know vet visits can be very stressful. Sometimes Jen’s parrots are out of sorts for a few days after their checkups, too. 😳
We may not be able to make those important visits totally stress-free, but reducing the ways our birds are stressed – like helping them LOVE their carriers! – can go a long way to a MUCH easier experience!
Cassie Malina, CPBT-KA, CPBC has over 20 years’ experience working with parrots and formerly produced parrot shows across the country – and most primarily at Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
Cassie is our Parrot Kindergarten behavior trainer (aka school counselor)! 🥰 In this workshop, she will show you just how to teach your bird to go into their carriers and crates – super easy! 😎
