Harness Training
« on: September 26, 2011, 06:54:43 PM »

trying to harness train georgie one of my cockatoos
he loves going out but i want him to be safe so decided
to TRY and train him first of all you need 6 pairs of hands to get the
harness on avoiding the beak but once its over his head
he then calms down so harness on just got to decide on
where he wants to sit arm shoulder neck or head after trying all these positions
he settled for my shoulder so  out we go thought just a little walk up and down the street to start with everthing goes very well untill we see a cat to wich georgie starts barking at now bearing in mind we have a bull mastiff  so its a real deep bark the cat runs infront of a car the car brakes but the one behind did not cat keeps running georgie still barking two angry motorists and me tring to get up the ally without being noticed we are going to wait a few days before we go out again  :bounce:

i've tried to train my gizzy. She bit the harness in half! she loves going outside but she just gets stiff and falls over with a harness on. then she proceeds to destroy it  :blow: wish i could figured out how to get her to be confortable with one one. she is so tiny though. it breaks my heart to see her in so much stress!

If she is in that much distress then I wouldn't try and force her, it sounds like a very extreme reaction. If she enjoys being outside in her travel cage then that is great. She is getting all the benefits of being outside  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Maybe leave the broken harness around and let her play with it so she sees that it isn't all that scary  :thumbsup:

just a warning to be careful with these harnesses .. i add some friends from knaresbrough come to visit me yesterday. and there brought there timmy grey with them . and there had him on one of these harnesses it is made from thin leather material. now there did say he as only had it on a couple of times when i saw him him he didn't look very comfortable with it on but there said the birds get use to them the more there have them on.  anyway after a little bit of saying our hello's and what havya's  we decided to put him in my spare cage.  well when there decided to leave for home we went to get charlie out of the cage we noticed he add managed to bite through the harness which made me think it was lucky he was in a cage and not outside were he could have got away..

so if any of you do have your birds on harnesses just be careful because there can chew through them. i know its winter now but in the summer time if you put your birds outside be careful.
