Re: Ducorp's Cockatoo Fearful Behavior

Hello fellow Marylander!

You’re approach is going to be about 20% forced, 80% trained for now. Forced only in the sense that there will simply be times you need her to do something now and don’t have time to work through it. It sounds like with her you have some leeway for minor coersion when needed. It’s not like she’s ripping your hand apart.

To use targeting, you simply target her in the direction of your hand. Eventually, target her onto the hand. More specifically, she will have to step onto your hand to touch the target.

Make sense?
