Good Bird Inc. was started by Barbara Heidenreich to address the growing interest in positive reinforcement training with Parrots. Fostering the human-animal bond with positive reinforcement is the company’s tag line and it really expresses their goal.
Their mission is to give you the tools and information to enable you to; be kinder and gentler with your Parrot; build a relationship based on trust; solve behaviour problems using the least intrusive methods; and experience the amazing relationship one can have with a Parrot when you train with positive reinforcement.
In 1982 Barbara Heidenreich secured her first job working with animals in a veterinary hospital. In 1990 after exploring various animal related professions, she entered the world of animal training and has been a professional trainer ever since.
To enable Barbara to share her knowledge and help other Parrot keepers enjoy their lives with their birds, she has written countless articles for many publications, she publishes Good Bird Magazine and has created a series of DVD’s on Parrot Behaviour and Training.
