About this title

Synopsis:

You love your pet bird, even when he misbehaves, but how can you train him with compassion? Birds off the Perch proves that rewarding good behavior is kinder and more effective than traditional discipline through punishment. This revolutionary approach combines the expertise of an animal behaviorist, a companion parrot consultant and a veterinarian who use "family therapy techniques" -- such as learning to respect the bird's boundaries and viewing sibling rivalry in a broad, environmental context -- to help you change the mischievous behavior of domesticated birds, including:
· Biting or aggression · Screaming · Sibling/bird rivalry
· Jealousy toward its human flock members, and · Feather plucking

With additional chapters on choosing the right species for your family, breeding behavior and the appropriate medical care for your bird, Birds off the Perch is the only guide you'll need to keep your pet birds healthy and happy.

About the Author:

Larry Lachman, Psy.D., is an animal behavior consultant specializing in dog, cat and pet bird behavior. He is the Social Cat Columnist for Cat Fancy and lives in Monterey, California.
