There is seriously so many articles/videos on this that I can't link them all.I am sure you mean to help. I am also sure that there are many solutions to one problem. But I mean to help too. So if we think differently, I would appreciate a link to studies or articles that proof your point. Instead of simply saying it exists. Help me get more clever, won't you?
My Emerald stop responding to commands when perched higher than my eye level. (Perhaps she read these myth on the internet ) Height dominance is recognized by many reputable sources too. And in the end it is just another way that might help. What is there to loose to try out this method? This theory only requires a move of perches to below eye level. If it works, problem solved....have a happy day....
Height dominance in pet birds can be an issue with a poorly trained pet bird or dominant pet bird. Birds that are allowed on shoulders or top of cages can be aggressive and nippy if not trained to "Step-up" on command. Proper training and socialization are essential to allow birds to perch...vcahospitals.com
I read about height dominace in birds.....a lot....I tried it on my sweet baby birds...and it worked for me. So I just share what works for me.
I am sure there is no right or wrong options (at least until you try it under your own circumstances.) What did not work for you, might work for me.....can we agree to disagree?
StormyPica alreay linked most of them but I'll send them anyway(thanks ollie, lol)
Here they are:
Almost all parrot owners have heard that they should not allow their parrots to be higher than them, or above their eye level, because it brings out in them an innate need to express their dominance over us, and that we should never keep a large parrot on our shoulders for this same reason. I...
This is what I could find.
Ok, we can agree to disagree. If that is what you believe, fine. But also keep in mind just because it worked with your bird, doesn't mean it will work with others. My cockatiel isn't aggressive when she is high. Sometimes birds think they have more control over you when up high, but it isn't really dominance.
Could you link the blogs/articles/videos that say height dominance exists?
