Go'in to the beach

Im taking my severe Pepper to the beach to show her the ocean. We already have harness training down cold but I was looking for any other lessons learned from anyone else who may have tried this.

Re: Go'in to the beach

What a good idea!

After having harness training down, you shouldn't really have to worry about anything. I don't see any reason for further training.

Good luck, and have fun.

I've been around but mostly from my work pc which is why i don't log in but i keep up with the threads. Pepper turned a year old back in June she getting big and filling out. I let her grow out her flight feathers. She's still kind of a clumsy flier but getting the hang of things, like descending. Going up easy for her but she doesn't get that she can coast or come down. We're working on it.

Re: Go'in to the beach

That sounds like sooo much fun!

I cant give advice about a parrot but I can tell you that the ocean scared the living daylights out of my iguana! I think the waves (I dont know if you have waves) and the amount of water was too much for him. He did however love the lagoons and I had to run after him and dived in with him - he was on a leash. My husband had to retrieve us with a row boat.

Please remember to take some photos and enjoy it!

Re: Go'in to the beach

As you can see by my avatar I take my Greenwing to the beach all the time. I live in Fl. so its 12 months a year. As a matter of fact we just got back from the Jupiter Inlet. Lots of surfers thanks to Earl. My advice would be not to take him if its too windy and don't go too close to the water. Auggie (my Greenwing) flew all the way back to the parking lot the first time i walked down to the water. Now he's OK with being near the water if its very calm. I love taking both Auggie and my CAG to the beach we go about 6 to 7 days a week. I have become some what of a local celebrity down here, its really a lot of fun. Good luck.

Hie-hie of course not! I did not take my boy in either, we were about 5 meters away from the water.

Willist, that sounds like sooo much fun, you must please share some photos with us.

Re: Go'in to the beach

Just got back this morning. Had a great vacation. Took a lot of nature walks and walks around town with Pepper. When we were at the beach i walked too close to the water and Pepper flew back toward the shore. She let out a little yelp as she left my shoulder which got the attention of all the gulls and sand pipers who quickly came over to investigate. Spent alot of quality time with Pep and it seemed to really strengthen our parrot/person relationship. For some reason the URL's for my flickr page aren't linking the pics so i'll just link the site. Feel free to check out all the pics which are from the last year or so.
