I actually had a past experience, I just got the dove, I was arrogant so I put the dove in the show immediately! The audience wasn't expecting a live animal in the show, the dove appeared out of the pan. he flew down towards the ground and walked to the exit! He knew where he was going...HOME!

Proves what we are saying, doesn't it?

That may have been a long time ago but your post yesterday indicated you didn't want to spend a lot of time training since you are only going to use a dove pan.

That is correct, I was just recalling a memory. I think my dove is half way there to being trained to perch, nothing can get it off my finger. he was resting on the computer desk just a second ago before I began typing, he is awake now.

That's a good step but perching is not training. Birds will naturally perch, it's a matter of how long and through what circumstances. I don't know your dove but the next time it is just sitting on the computer desk, make a sudden movement like getting up quickly and see if it stays there. That's what the training is for.

If you produce your dove from a dove pan and he doesn't fly off, then you have accomplished your goal and that's the important thing.

I just made a few sudden moves, the dove was startled but he didn't fly off. I will do it again in a few more minutes to make sure the reaction will be the same.
