    Someone recently told me that there was only one trainer on the internet that had free training advice. This is, quite simply, false. This “trainer” they spoke of is an amateur that has taken advice from salesmen who market themselves as bird trainers. Not to say that they don't enjoy helping people connect, or even reconnect, with their birds, simply that they [the salesmen and amateur trainer] still have a lot to learn when it comes to animal behaviors and training.

    In response, I put this list together that has a ton of resources for free information! And if you need more personal advice, you can set up a skype call, webinar or otherwise with some of these behaviorists and trainers for more one on one information!

    This is *SOUND* advice from people who truly understand the science of behavior! :D I have also included some additional links with great advice!

    Although not about training animals, Temple Grandin has a great book about understanding
    how animals think! Definitely worth a read if you want to better understand your companions! The book I’ve read is Animals in Translation.

    You should watch the free one.


    I'd say yes, definitely they are! But watch the free one first so you get an idea of what they are like. It is in the very first link, #8! :)
