So, I'm currently working on teaching my budgie to 'step-up.' She's understood the basic concept of it, and will step up, then get rewarded with a treat. On a day when I don't have school - weekends, for example - i'll usually wait at least an hour before starting another training session, especially if we're learning a new concept (Our training sessions usually last half and hour - shorter if she gets bored, agitated or isn't hungry anymore.) But after this period of time, it's like she forgets everything we've worked on. For example, if she was happily stepping up in our first session, she'll be reluctant to place more than one foot on my finger in our second, and that's only if i show her the treat in my hand. I have to re-teach the concept again. And again, and again, with new methods and each of them having the same or no result. This has been going on for about two and a half months now, and as you can imagine, it's become slightly frustrating. I feel this would be easier if she had a treat she was especially crazy for, like most budgies with millet, but so far, she hasn't taken to any 'treat' other than seed, which we already feed her on a daily basis. Any advice (other than find a new, better treat, which we are already trying to do) would be incredibly appreciated!
