The store is celebrating it’s 26th year in business. I took over the store in Feb. 2013 and changed the name from “Discount Bird and Pet supplies” to “Canoga Discount Birds”. The store use to sell reptiles, bunnies, cats, dogs, and hamsters. Later realized that being a bird store was more interesting than just being a pet store. We are also the largest retail bird store in southern cal.
I took over the store after buying a greenwing macaw from the previous owner. I knew nothing about birds and only had two weeks of training from the previous owner. In the year and a half I have been there we have totally changed the look of the store, got myself certified as a “Certified Avian Specialist” I have also taken and passed courses on Avian Disease, Breeding certified, and am starting a course to become a International Avian Trainer. We pride our self’s on matching companion birds to people and won’t sell a bird if we feel it would not be a good fit for the bird.
