A properly trained parrot is a wonderful pet—and a poorly trained parrot can be a feathered monster. Rebecca K. O'Connor addresses many more topics Pet Parents will find useful, including behavioral enrichment and training a parrot to tolerate—or even participate in—nail trimming, wing clipping, wearing a harness, and riding in a carrier. Rebecca writes about everything you need to know to obtain a Perfectly Trained Parrot.
