Harness Training

Postby Cockatielsongs » Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:07 pm

Okay, so I'm planning on training my baby Galah to wear a harness. My question is how do you avoid having your bird jerk to a stop and come crashing down once it flies the leash's full length (if that makes sense :? )

The aviator harness has an elasticated leash to prevent that. I don't know of any other harness which has that feature.
