MandyG wrote:Is there any way that you can clear a path from perch to perch where the cord won't get tangled? Or perhaps you could try 6 foot recalls just to start getting her used to it? Are you wanting to fly her outside with it and get a longer leash for outside flight or are you primarily using it just so you can take her out with you and you'll hold onto the 6ft cord?

It's not possible for me to let him chew on it so he realizes he can't get it off, he'll definitely be able to chew through it. He won't even take treats from me when he has it on now. I don't know what happened that he's decided he hates it so much . It's going to take a lot of work to get him used to it by the time it warms up enough for him to go outside.

Michael wrote:By the way, it is recommended NOT to hold the end of the leash like in your picture. It should at minimum be strapped around your wrist if not clipped to your belt. People have definitely lost their parrots that way. I only hold it like that inside cause it's not a big deal if she gets out.
