I agree with Wyrinth honestly, but like I said, the bird wins in that case. Unfortunately, with dogs in the house, its just not viable to leave him on the floor for a period of time. When they're locked outside, sure, but they usually aren't. I could explain every reason that it is a non issue with the dogs for the past 8 years and that we take so many precautions, but I would still be judged regardless so not going to attempt it. No offense guys.
Are there other ways to discourage being on the floor without me become the 'trained' species in the scenario when I have to pick him up? If not, extra care can be taken that when he gets into one of those moods, he just stays in my room. He can be on the floor there and do as he pleases. So far, thats been the only solution I've found. This isn't a constant thing either, just more there are periods of time that he is incredibly insistent on it, and couldn't care less about the floor the rest of the day.
