There's Always a Solution for Every Challenge!

Small steps, clear guidance, and tangible results!
(Don't forget the yummy treats 😁 )

Parrots are capable of such affection and brilliance, almost nothing is as heartbreaking as when our birds are frustrated or hurting. 

We also know there are answers to behavior challenges.  We’ll create gentle, attainable solutions for you and your bird with lots of rewarding ways to fix problems small or large!

Cassie Malina, CPBT-KA has been successfully empowering caregivers and training parrots worldwide for over 20 years. With clear and supportive guidance, she will help you develop short-term and long-term goals. Together, you’ll create easy to follow training plans. Then you’ll video record your training sessions and review them together via video conference. Cassie will also do live coaching together with you and your bird on the video consultations.

There are effective solutions for behavior challenges, and Cassie will help you create a fuller, happier, healthier life for your parrot and your family. 

Most program packages are comprised of six (60 minute) sessions designed to help you achieve your short term goals and build the skills and tools necessary to achieve your long term goals as well. Yep, we can solve that problem!

We Believe In
