    taming and training

    i have had my budgie for nearly 5 years now and he is quite tame but i feel that he doesn't trust. for example. he hates being caught for check ups and nail clipping. its actually getting very hard to catch him as he has learnt all the tricks i use!
    anyway i was wandering if there is anything i can do to help him trust me more and i would also like to train him (i want to be an animal trainer so the practice would be good!)

    so any ideas?

    You could try giving him a favorite treat or something after you've caught him cnad clipped him... and then let him stay out of his cage for a while, making sure clipping ends on a positive note instead of a negative one. He'll learn with time that if he behaves and puts up with clipping, vet visits, etc. that he'll get something out of it in the end, like some millet or veggies.

    he stays out all day but the treats are a good idea.
