Re: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust

The clicker serves as a "bridge" between your bird's correct behavior and the treat received for said correct behavior. Basically, you're not always going to have a treat on hand to pop into the bird's mouth the instant he does something you like. So having a bridge that your bird associates with the coming treat lets him know straight away that he's done something great and is about to be rewarded.

With a parrot, feedback has to come right away for him to properly associate the act with the reward. Take too long, and the treat either reinforces nothing or worse, unintentionally reinforces something else.

Personally, though I started with a clicker I eventually dropped it and just used verbal praise as the training bridge instead. Why? Because I'm absent-minded at times and kept losing the clicker. But I rarely lose my voice. Lol!

Re: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust

Believe it or not, clicker apps are available for smartphones! Plenty of choices under the guise of "Dog Clickers."

Re: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust

Um so does that mean it worked? Is the user who posted this thread on here anymore? How did they get banned?

I am actually curious as to how he/she was banned as well (tried to look back at old posts, but most recent seemed okay...I am guessing the posts that lead to this were deleted, but what does it take to get banned? I am just curious, as I would hate to end up banned myself!)

Yeah yikes. I'm guessing that's what happens when you have a really old account that's not active. They made a nice post I mean what would they get banned for? I wonder if any moderators know.
Or maybe may second guess a person did something wrong with a bird and they cussed them out, but that's just my wild wild guess.
Maybe they disobeyed the rules? I really want to know what happened too. I wouldn't want to get banned either but they can always make another account right? They just probably have to use a different email or something. I wonder how the banning thing works.

Guess you're referring to "Delfin?" Happened before I became a moderator, and it would betray confidentiality to research and report.

Banning:

We actually ban a fair number of folks, but not for the reasons you may imagine. They are overwhelmingly new members who join for mischievous reasons. Every candidate is vetted through our own data base and an external site to identify spammers. Repeat offenders are classified as "registered spammers" and immediately banned by us and reported as such. Moderators cannot be everywhere, and when a eagle-eyed member suspects foul play, they can "report" a post to the moderator forum. The first available mod researches and takes action.

Existing members can be banned for repeated actions contrary to forum rules. Bans can range from temporary to permanent. Almost nobody is summarily banned, mods attempt to work with members and give warnings as needed. It is a very rare occurrence!!

Re: Tips for Bonding and Building Trust

I fully agree with Scott’s explanation on Bannings.

I think it’s only fair to mention that this particular thread on bonding was originally posted by a long time contributing member. Check out the long list of thank you’s at the bottom of the original post. The thread was made a sticky by a unanimous vote as all sticky’s are, the thread is one of my personal favorites, I use the link often and I’m grateful to Delfin for sharing the wisdom. As Scott mentioned, bannings are confidential, thank you for understanding. Our current mod team has a very positive approach toward our community and members. In other words once you get past the gates we hope you’ll have a pleasant stay.

I'm guessing they mean to say rip to their account because it's banned, and they probably will appear elsewhere like on another parrot forum I guess.

I have a morning ritual with Consuela, my QP. When I get up I put a clicker in my pocket along with some safflower seeds in my pocket. First thing that I give her to eat is her pellets. I hands-free her 6 to 8 pellets and tell her how pretty and smart she is. Then come the rest of the pellets, the veggies, and the grape (Ah, the grape, sliced in halves!). She has a flat-topped cage. Her food goes on an 1/8" piece of plywood. Not exactly foraging, but mixed and scattered. Because my desk is beside her cage, I am talking to her all day long. She is out of her cage all day.
We work on tricks for dedicated 15min. periods several times a day. That is where the seeds and clicker in my pocket pay dividends. I am her trusted source of food, water, and mental stimulation.
Yeah, we are buddies. We are bonded. It is that simple. It just takes time, lots of it.
