My favorite pets are parrot and dog. Parrot can talk human language so I like this bird and dog is faithful and the watchman of our home/house. Well I love other animals also but prefer to keep these two with our family members.
I like dogs; however, I prefer birds. I learned from a huber, that they're easy to carry and cheap to maintain. What Human language is a parrot able to talk? Do they really talk or they just repeat words.
They can say basic words like hello they can learn to imitate a humans laugh and telephone ring even. You can't teach it to speak sentances but its cool when they learn little stuff. I know our answers got deleted but make sure it's tame very vital.
That means that they can learn spanish, too. I think I will enjoy having a bird that I can teach a few words. I deleted them by accident jackoburn. I'm keeping my part of our conversation. I wish I had not deleted them. Your answers were very informa
Yes it does. they learn basic words commonly used however not all birds are able to do this. parrots definetly can but even try to find a smaller bird with these abilities if you want as the are easier to maintain.
Yes, that's what I'm looking. A pet that I can maintain. Do they need vaccinations often?
I don't think very often I'm not sure though. Just make sure to cut its wings often so it cant fly away, and that its tame so it can go out of the cage. Do you know what I mean by tame?
Yes, they're domesticated. They have adapted to live with humans, so as to stay close to them and don't cause harm. Some animals can even protect their owners. I used to think of a dog for that, but I think I'll try a bird. I like the chirp sound the
just making sure just cause it's so important because you'll enjoy having a tame bird much more because it can roam outside the cage even in your backyard once its familiar with it and not fly away. Although clip its wings just in case. they're great
Your experience with birds is broadening my understanding about them. I'm very lucky to have met you before buying my first bird pet. How long do birds live?
They live at least 10 years it depends on the bird.
my favorite memory of my cockatiel was I could sit in my backyard and wistle for him and he'd hear it and walk over to me definetly research which birds you can buy that you can teach
Yes, I would like to learn how to train my bird. I have read of birds that people used before the advent of mail for that purpose. Good tip! I will do research.
Yeah research ways to teach it stuff and how to reward it.
For me, when I taught my bird something new I would give him a treat. Hopefully you get a playful bird, if you do it'll be a lot of fun.
Yes. It'll be fun to have a bird that can come to me at the sound of a whistle.
Dogs!!!!! I like dogs because they are loyal and they love you unconditionally.
I don't have a pet these days, but I have a dream pet. My dream pet is a pet that responds to me and I think most dogs fit the bill. However, I believe there are also other animals that may, at times, also fit the bill, e.g. a trained monkey or a cat.
When I was young, I took one of the chicken that my mother reared, as my pet. The chicken never did recognize me, even though I go daily to cuddle and talk to it.

If your dog or cat needed a limb amputated would you keep the pet or put it to sleep?For the record I have seen loads of dogs and cats with three, (even two) legs survive perfectly well, but likewise I have seen owners faced with this choice say that either they don't think it is fair to have a...
