Postby ParrotsForLife » Wed Jun 03, 2015 7:10 am

Any of you know how to get a bird to fly a little gap im trying to teach Rocko flight recall but he tries to find a way across but he wont fly across a little gap but he can fly around the room I want him to know flight recall because it will be useful when we go to the park.

While it seems like you have it worked out I'm just curious if you were using a target stick. If not, you might want to go back and try it that way. I've found the target stick to be invaluable in all training.
