We love pets, although to enjoy their love and loyalty, we must take care of our pets and treat them as they deserve. However, many times situations arise that we do not know how to control and we must turn to an expert. For example, when our friendly parrot has a bad behavior and it bites us. What can we do then? Don’t worry, because we explain how to make my parrot not bite.

Steps to follow:

1. Educating an animal is not an easy task, as it requires patience, perseverance and discipline. In this case, to ensure that a parrot does not bite, we must first earn its trust. And how is this done? Basically, with the daily care we provide the parrot, that is, when we feed it every day, when we clean its cage, when we offer it a toy, when we interact with it. In this way, the animal understands that you are the owner and its welfare depends on you, therefore, it must respect you.

2. Another important detail that we must take into account is that parrots are wild animals and can react aggressively to certain stimuli in their environment that they are not able to understand or control. In other words, parrots bite when they feel threatened and when they are scared because they are not able to understand what is going on around them or because they are not yet familiar with their environment. But also when their hormonal activity is increasing, something that happens during the mating season which is usually in spring and autumn.

3. To prevent the parrot from biting, we can follow a series of guidelines ourselves that will help us correct this behaviour. In this sense, experts recommend us to make gentle movements and slowly approach our pet. The first contacts are very important, to make sure that you start to trust us. As we mentioned before, we must earn their trust and try to create an environment in which our pet feels comfortable and relaxed.

4. Another good idea to control an aggressive parrot is to encourage good behaviour with a treat. But you must also remember that parrots sting more when they are close to their territory, that is, their cage. So do not forget to keep him away from this environment so that he does not appear so aggressive.

5. Other times, however, despite all our efforts and attempts, we are not able to get the parrot to stop biting. Do not worry because there may be many other causes that we do not see, unless we are veterinarians. For example, perhaps the animal is stressed because its cage is too small or because it has some physical discomfort that we are not able to perceive. In these cases, if the behavior is increasingly aggressive and worrying, it will be better to consult an expert.
