Dear Catherine and Mitch, I just wanted to let you know how thrilled I am with the flight suit and leash I purchased from your company. When my cockatiel’s cage mate died, I wanted to find a way that I could spend more time with my remaining cockatiel tiel (Rai).
I saw the flight suit on your site and watched your video. So, although I was skeptical, I decided to give it a shot. My cockatiel is a 7-year-old bird with a feisty personality.
I followed the instructions, took two weeks just showing it to her, placing her favorite treats on it, hanging it in her cage, etc.
At the end of two weeks, when she seemed comfortable with it, I placed her in it (just like the video) and it took seconds.
She wasn’t happy at first but soon settled down.
Each time I wanted her to put the suit onI would show it to her so she wouldn’t be surprised or lose trust in me. She would look at it, scream at it, then come over and put it on.
Now, she comes to it (without the scream) and goes on 3-hour hikes with me! She loves it and I couldn’t be happier. Well, I guess you can teach an old dog (I mean bird) new tricks 🙂 Thank you, Roberta and Om Shanti,
