How to Train Your Parrot with Michael Sazhin

Learn about Michael Sazhin, aka the Parrot Wizard, in this Howcast video.

I’m Michael Sazhin, the Parrot Wizard. These are my parrots, Kili and Truman. Kili is a five-year old female Senegal parrot and Truman is a three-year old male Cape parrot.

Everything that I’m sharing with you I’ve learned with them. We’ve been on a training journey together for the last five years. I’ve been on "America’s Got Talent", "The Steve Harvey Show", and "The Late Show with David Letterman" with Kili, who is a very famous trick performing parrot.

I recently completed my new book, "The Parrot Wizard’s Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots". It is a 296-page book in ten chapters that goes from how to pick a parrot from the very beginning, how to bring it home, how to get it out of the cage for the very first time, how to set up your training routine, how to start teaching the parrot tricks and good behaviors. All in all, this book is a complete approach from start to finish about keeping well-behaved parrots in your home.

You can purchase the book on Amazon or visit ParrotWizard.com to get your copy. Also, visit my blog, Trainedparrot.com, for lots of free training articles about how to teach parrots.

So, I hope these videos help encourage you to start a training process with your bird, hope that this shows you that you can achieve a lot with your own pet. You don’t have to be a professional trainer to get to have a loving, bonded relationship with you bird and have a good time in the process, have a healthy companion bird in return. And I encourage you to buy my book, "Parrot Wizard’s Guide to Well-Behaved Parrots", to be able to get the in-depth information about establishing a complete approach to owning parrots.
