Lightbulb Clicker training has begun!

I have heard lots of great things from people on here about clicker training, so I decided to give it a try! I have always been skeptical of clicker training, but now that I've tried it, I see why so many people love it and recommend it!

Its amazing to see how a budgies behavior changes as they try to figure out which tricks give them rewards. You can really start to get a sense of how smart these little guys are.

So far, Alex has learned the command 'step up' and 'off', it's only been one night! She is also less spooked when I open my laptop or take the bottom tray out of her cage, two things which she was terrified of before. I am officially turned on to clicker training! I will try to get a video of her once my t perch arrives in the mail. I'm astounded at what a clever girl she is and how quickly she picked up on the clicker!

Was anyone else skeptical of clickers at first? I used to think that they were brainwashing the animal, but now I see how stimulating they actually are! My only problem is that she thinks the sound of me clicking my mouse and keyboard also means treats

Today is also going well! I still have to give most of my daily attention to the puppy, but Alex is now learning to follow my finger around the cage when I tap it on a perch

She's very clever, and soon I hope to have more time to spend with her

Today has been another great day! She was successfully out of the cage and didn't get frightened of any of my family members coming to see her. I have also been getting her to step up and allow me to place her back into her cage when playtime is over, which pleases me the most so far. I really want to get (or make) a playstand so that she can chill with me at my school computer once the next semester starts. I want something interesting for and portable, similar to this, but with more natural wood perches and toys.
