DISTANCE Consulting for the parrot owner

Not in Southern Arizona? Do you think that your bird would learn better without a stranger in your home? Speak face to face with a certified animal behavior consultant about concerns with your birds. Schedule a video consultation and I can help you reach your training goals from the comfort and safety of your home.  Video consultations allow me to speak with you and help create a behavior modification program through correspondence training. This program evolves with you and your bird as you progress to allow you to find the results you want. Video consultation packages consist of two sessions.
