What is Parrot Academy?

Oftentimes new parrot owners or owners of a new parrot find themselves bogged down with information overload. We have found that when faced with this mountain of information, novice and even seasoned bird owners can become overwhelmed and lost. To address this situation Jess Euliano of Creative Behaviors Consulting and, Robin Sullivan of The Leather Elves have created an online course to walk you through owning a new bird. This online, 8-week course will cover basic ownership, supplies, and set up, creating a routine to optimize building the parrot/ human bond, understanding avian body language, basic and husbandry training techniques and tips, and creating an enrichment plan.

We will work with participants to formulate a personalized plan to meet their birds’ needs in their particular setting.  There will be homework to focus the plan on, addressing specifics in a comfortable group meeting. Each class will consist of a short presentation on the week’s topic and then an open forum to review details and give participants an opportunity to ask questions and share insights with fellow attendees. Each session will be recorded so that registered participants may review the content at their leisure for 4 months. We will review weekly homework so that we can better tailor the sessions to the group’s needs.

The cost to register is $50.00 USD (early bird pricing) until December 25th and then the cost moves to $60.00 USD. We highly suggest registering early as class size is limited and registering after the initial meeting could cause confusion while trying to get caught up.
