Clicker Training Parrots: Bird Clickers

Clicker training your parrot is a great activity that provides mental enrichment, teaches problem solving skills and can help solve a parrot’s behavioral problems. A clicker is a device that makes a distinct click sound, which marks a specific behavior and serves as a “bridge” to the reward. In other words, you click to mark the behavior at the exact time it occurs and signal to the bird that his treat is coming right up. To learn more about how clicker training works and the purpose of the clicker, please get the book Clicker Training for Birds by Melinda Johnson.
