    Has anyone purchased chet womach's training video?

    I am just curious if this is a scam or legitimate. I googled him and got mixed reviews. I am curious if anyone has tried his techniques and/or if they were ripped off. I knew if anyone could answer the question it would be here. Thank you for your help....Kevin

    Most of us here absolutely abhor Chet and his whole realm of training videos and terrible advice.

    I would not recommend wasting your money on this persons very bad, money craving products.
    Within all of us is a varying amount of space lint and star dust, the residue from our creation. Most are too busy to notice it, and it is stronger in some than others. It is strongest in those of us who fly and is responsible for an unconscious, subtle desire to slip into some wings and try for the elusive boundaries of our origin. ~K.O.

    On the other hand, I would recommend these training DVDs:

    I am glad that I asked the question here. I knew I could get some mixed results, however, from doing some research on the internet, reading my replies and having been burned once by a person named Wayne (I ordered a bottle brush tree to the tune of $362.00 sixteen months ago that never came) I will forgo this training video. Thank you all for your valuable input. I appreciate your taking the time to write down your opinions to me.
    Sincerely,
    Kevin

    Kevin: I lost one of my posts to you, anyway, welcome to this forum - we are both new. Just read, read, read to learn from so many of these knowledgable, experienced bird owners on this forum. I have learned so much from reading these interesting threads. My CAG is 8 mo. old and it has been a learning experience. He seems to be a biter and has been from the beginning 4 mos. ago. My husband has a better bond with him, even tho I feed him and am with him all day every day. I am leary of him and he probably knows it. He is not noisy, sleeps well, plays alone alot, interacts with us, and is all around a great bird from some of things I read. Good luck with your bird - keep posting and learning. Donna

    "Chet Womach"

    Check this out... apparently he is involved in the parenting video business as well, only under a different name, "Mac Strider". So he purports to be an experienced parrot trainer, dog trainer, and now, apparently, is an authority on child rearing. Only, he's doing that under a different name. This counts among "things that make you go hmm..."

    Check out this video, he's wearing the same t-shirt, is behind the same table, and the camera is at the same angle as in a parrot-training video. This is disturbing to me. I've posted both videos here:

    http://www.betterparenting.com/when-do-babies-sit-up/

    http://www.birdtricks.com/blog/shower-speech-training/

    I'm willing to bet he made both videos on the same occasion. This guy gives me the creeps. I wouldn't buy anything from either "Chet Womach" or "Mac Strider".

    Whah, I just sent the Legacy Publishing Company a little email enquiring about this dual personality. No doubt it's Chet's twin brother right?
