Meetings and Events


July 14: Guest Speaker Emily Strong

Speaker: Emily Strong, Animal Behavior Consultant
Topic:  Grooming

Most people think of grooming sessions and vet visits as being unavoidably unpleasant, but that doesn’t have to be the case! We can train our birds to not only tolerate but actively participate in their own husbandry practices, which makes grooming and veterinary visits both safer and less stressful. In this presentation we’ll discuss the broad strokes of how to accomplish this, as well as the common training mistakes people make which leads so many people to believe it’s impossible.
