target training

Hello all
Well me and marley done our first TT. Sitting I think it went well he is still abit unsure of the touch command but will do it after the 10 attempts at it each time he don st touch I just stop and turn away until he wants more attention lol which is about 30 seconds I done this with him for about 20 mins and left him wanting more. Just got a few Qs about it
1, How long should each sitting last
2 any tips or advise would be very welcome I'm just abit unsure how long to do each training with him how many times a day ect.

Re: target training

Hi there,
You can do multiple simple tricks at the same training session, such as targeting, step up, wave, shake and turn around. You don't need to train the bird too much every day. Once a day is perfect. Twice is at most. Every training session doesn't need to be long. 10-15 minutes is a good start. However, if the birds still show interest in what you are teaching, you can extend the training period. Usually, they will not focus any more after half an hour.
You'd better train parrot in the evening because they can pay more attention after sunset.
Plus, do not repeat the learned trick too much. Parrot will be bored and lose interest very soon in that way. You just need to refresh old tricks like 3 times and go on teaching new tricks. Just remember, keep training session fun for parrot.
In most cases, you parrot can easily learn these 5 trick in 2 days.

If any more questions, just ask me. I am pretty good at trick training.
