Secret No. 1 To A Happy Pet CockatooFoster Trust-Building Interactions With Your Cockatoo, Not Trust-Destroying Interactions
No matter how frustrated you become with your pet cockatoo, keep your cool. Slowing down your energy can make a big difference if your pet cockatoo is in overload behavior mode. Pet cockatoos are quite empathic, and a few deep breaths to relax ourselves often calms down pet birds in the throes of overload behavior. Punishment is trust-destroying and usually increases negative pet bird behaviors. Cockatoos thrive on positive attention and praise.
