Toy Stories

When selecting toys for the cage, encourage owners to keep in mind the bird’s species, size, interests and personality.

Deep Cleaning

Birds have a sensitive respiratory system that is susceptible to air quality, so owners and retailers need to act with care when cleaning their cages.

Bird Keeping Dos (and Don’ts)

Retailers who educate their customers on the basic dos and don’ts of bird keeping will help ensure that both bird and owner are happy.

Taking a Stand

Play stands are necessary items for birds, as they provide space to let loose with toys and climbing items that are different from those in the cage.

Old Habits Die Hard

Pet owners and retailers must stay open to incorporating new knowledge into our pet care programs so we can keep pets healthy in the store and at home.

The Art of Matchmaking

Pairing potential owners with birds that complement their lifestyles will result in happy customers who will return to the store for years to come.

Going Wild

Wild bird feeding is a popular hobby amongst pet owners, and retailers can entice this group into the store by offering good food and quality equipment.

Keeping it Clean

A cage is a bird’s home, so the cleaner it is kept, the happier and healthier the bird will be.

Lessons in Livestock

Stocking a variety of birds, including new species and color varieties, will keep customers coming back to the store time and again.

That’ll Teach ‘Em

Like humans, parrots are a learning species, which means they need to be taught how to be well-behaved pet birds.

Birds at Play

It’s a very exciting time for bird toys, as manufacturers are producing creative products that really take into account what a bird needs to stay mentally stimulated.

Home Improvement
