Screamer Turned Charmer
« on: December 08, 2013, 02:19:07 PM »
As some know Charlie screamed a lot in his first 4 months with me. Today I chuckle. I was upstairs taking a nap. And I heard in the distance Charlie charlie is a good bird whatcha doung Charlie good bird. It's happened repetitively. I apparently did not respond to Charlie. He tried speaking again. And then gave one bark. Then I heard him speaking again. I called Charlie Charlie the good bird. He got very happy I went downstairs and gave him a cashew. My house is  quiet and it makes me chuckle to think I had a screamer.

The power of positive reinforcement. Charlie knows he gets a treat if he speaks and does not scream
