Salty has become very comfortable with our new training surface, so I decided that a new training video was in order. We did almost every single trick in the book, except for the card trick ( picking the Kings from a deck of cards),which is hard for him to do on the towel, and doing his little slide, which is usally our last trick of the session, but my boys decided at that point to come upstairs and Salty got way distracted. Salty created the tricks with the hoop, and singing with the piano and the xylophone.

My friend, What you have done with salty is just remarkable! Such a performer!!

Confession: I’m wildly jealous of people who do stuff like colors, anything that requires the bird to pick up and hold something. He just avoids the object or attacks it. I e tried to teach Parker to do this with targeting, but he hasn’t taken to it, blocking off a whole new avenue of training for him. And I have to blame myself obviously since I’m clearly doing something wrong. :(

RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
Truly phenomenal production!! Salty's attention span is amazing, thanks for the continuity of a lengthy video. More informative than small snippets of action.

While this session was almost perfect, some nights he is just not in the mood to do any tricks , or only some of them. Tonight;s session was an example - he refused several of the tricjs and was generally distracted. By what, who knows. I alwaus let him refuse a given trick, or even a whole session, Our traning sessions always begin and end with the same tricks (ones he loved to do) so we start and end on a positive note - thats important. He walks away knowing that he's a good bird, a good boy even if he refuses some tricks.
