Nov 15th 2022 4pm – *Just in Time for Holidays!*  Introduce Your Bird(s) To People!

These brilliant, beautiful birds rely on me – for literally everything. I am responsible for their joy, for their quick minds and for their health.

I’m responsible for their happiness. And, of course, it is a job that brings me happiness I could never describe!

Aaaaand… I always look, too, at this: is their world getting smaller, or larger?  🙄

Are they (red flag!) spending more time in their cage because of behavior problems? Are they less able to visit with people because of behavior problems? 😳

Orrrrr… Is their world getting bigger? Are they meeting new people, interacting well with strangers and friends? Are they seeing new places, learning new things, expanding their experiences?

In this workshop we’re going to talk about EXPANDING their world! More experiences make for a richer, happier life – by learning to socialize with other people! ❤️

Sometimes we can’t know all the things, but that’s why there are experts, right? 🥰


I brought in the amazing Cassie Malina (a talented and experienced bird training expert, and our Parrot Kindergarten “School Counselor!”) to work with us and honestly…

She’s absolutely magical 😃

Like some fairy bird godmother she fixed us right up and we’ve literally been fine ever since. ❤️ Force free hand transfers right back to normal (whew!). No more pinches, either. (Also whew!)

So much gentleness 🙂 Happy bird and happy mama!!

(Yes yes yes you really can!)

In this workshop, our Parrot Kindergarten behavior trainer, Cassie Malina, CPBT-KA, CPBC will show you just how do to that – step-by-easy-step.
