Teaching your cockatiel clicker training. Before you can clicker train your bird, you must get your bird to recognize the clicker as a positive entity. To achieve this, it's necessary to go through a period of conditioning your bird to respond to the sound of the clicker.
To begin with your bird, simply repeat the following steps:
A. Click the clicker.
B. Immediately give your bird a treat. (Millet seeds works great)
Do small training sessions no more than 10 minutes, once a day (each step takes about 2-4 days to learn). Birds have excellent memory, you don't need to practice everyday, a bird will remember each step learned very well.
