I found this excellent trainer on YouTube just thought I would share https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=DwW5Fn-JFp8. His video on flight training/ recall over wing clipping is also very good.

I did similar with Jasper and took her around different rooms and tapped the windows so she was aware of them, very good advice there. Thankyou  :thumbsup:

I like how gentle he is with his parrot, like teaching to step up and not pushing against it's chest forcing her to step up all just done with treats and positive reinforcement. I have watched and read loads of training tips in preparation for when I get mine and his way of doing things really stands head and shoulders above a lot of the others. Does anyone else have any good links to videos/tips on training?
