Subtitle: The positive guide to solving biting, screaming, fearfulness and feather picking
Author: Clara Hollins
Book Dimensions: 6 x 9 in.
This is a detailed but light-hearted book aimed at mostly middle-aged women who love their pet parrots. Note that “parrots” cover a wide range of species including budgies, cockatiels, macaws, cockatoos, parakeets, conures, quakers, caiques, Indian ringnecks, Amazons, African greys, lorikeets, lovebirds, eclectus, alexandrines, etc.
My book dispels the abundance of training myths and current practices and teaches a more effective and less intrusive approach to training parrots using positive reinforcement, shaping and changing their environment (methods based on science, not hearsay). There are four parts to the book: first the basics and learning how to think like a bird, then brainstorming, then taking action and retraining, and then finally taking your parrot to a new level of care and refinement that you only see in the most well-behaved of birds.
I would love an attention-grabbing cover. I don’t have anything particular in mind so you are free to be creative.
The book also comes with 5 bonus chapters on proper parrot care (Choosing a Parrot, Cage and Environment, Feeding Your Parrot, Enrichment, Health and Care). I would like this mentioned on either the front or back cover.
Can't wait to see what you guys come up with! Thanks!
