About Heart of Feathers Education & Training

Celebrating our 6th Anniversary in business (Tiny Companies Rule!)!!

On November 1, 2015, Heart of Feathers Education & Training started as a dream to assist people with companion birds.  Now six years later, Heart of Feathers Education & Training is going strong. We have assisted wonderful bird people on training new behaviors to redirecting undesired behavior.


Heart of Feathers Education & Training has helped those in our local area, across the U.S.A, and across the pond to the UK. (I guess that makes us international?!)

Thank you to all the referrals or just finding us on the web.  I really believe Bird Education/Training is just as important as Dog Education/Training. 


Heart of Feathers Education & Training's goal is to educate on compassion and cooperative companion bird behavior training for your individual bird.   

Patience, Planning, Practice


About Our Trainer

Our Senior Trainer, Sheila, is a professional IAABC Certified Parrot Behavior Consultant(CPBC)/Trainer.  She continues refreshing her education on the latest information on using proper methodology related to the Applied Behavior Analysis by attending credited colleges, and professional webinars/conferences.  Sheila just recently completed the requirements for her certificate from the University of Washington in Applied Animal Behavior.  She can carry the letters UW-AAB after her name to designate this.

Additionally, Sheila volunteers at local rescues. While working with the rescue, she may foster a companion bird with undesired behavior. Fostering assists with keeping her skills up to date through learning and hands on experience and will assist in improving the behavior of the bird to get adopted.

She passes her professional knowledge and experience to her clients (as well as relating to the client's situation).



We understand there are many articles and  videos can be found on social media.   

Heart of Feathers Education & Training recognizes and treats each bird as an individual. We work towards creating a unique a designed one on one session and a personal training plan for you and your bird. 

We use several training methodologies to assist with your needs: 

  • Force-Free/Choice Training (the training plan encourages and strengthens behavior).

  • Evidence Based Training (the training plan based on the individual prior knowledge level and pace)

  • LIMA - Less Intrusive, Minimal Aversive (the training plan reviews everything in the environment to set up successful training sessions)


These techniques can lead to a

mutual trust and a caring understanding bond.

"Every interaction with your bird is a training opportunity; Make your encounter a fun and positive moment."
