Re: Getting Perry into his house?

Perry was a gentleman today and stepped up on the stick and instead of attacking it today he put his head down to block it from going to his belly. feeling pretty good tonight we conquer the boogey man

Re: Getting Perry into his house?

Got home from work today and Perry didn’t want to step up on to the stick but he’s super smart. I ask him to come to the front perch door of his house and he comes right on over. Took a bit of back and forth kind of following him around to get the first step up but the second like I was saying he came right over to the perch door and stepped right up. Thanks for the help again guys patience and back to the basics. He also seemed a little less agitated when I came home today he hasn’t gone after Bella my dog yet knock on wood.

Re: Getting Perry into his house?

Pretty awesome stuff today. Perry went into his house tonight to sleep no problem. I felt bad he dropped his treat when he saw the doors closing. Also just before bed he had a feather stuck to his peak so i was asking him if i could grab it for him and holy cow he bowed his head and let me scritch him. It was awesome I felt bad that as a reward he got to go inside his house. He also followed me upstairs today twice and around the house. He let me pick him up and walked around on my shoulder for a little bit. Pretty excited. I hope he’s not po’d in the am.

Re: Getting Perry into his house?

This morning I didn’t have to use the wooden dowel Perry stepped right up onto my finger for his treat. Pretty awesome.

I always believe the bird trains you, not the other way around.

Re: Getting Perry into his house?

Oh yes Perry is working on training me alright. My finger is a wee bit sore. But nothing serious. He’s quite the character. He’s doing well getting in and out of his house knock on wood. Stepping up pretty well except when he tricks me and picks up his foot for a ride then realizes I don’t have a treat on me an promptly declines the ride with a chomp to the finger in warning of making this error again. However now I can distract him with my treat hand now.
