Lee Stone, CPDT-KA, FFCP (Trainer)
Operations Manager and Avian Behaviour and Training Consultant
Lee comes to Parrot Life® from a background in dog training and behaviour consulting. Lee worked with Urban Dog Training in Brisbane between 2010- 2014 under the close guidance of her mentors, award winning trainers Danielle and Paul Shelbourne. She then moved to Port Hedland in Western Australia, opening her own dog training and behaviour consulting business, in May 2014. Her business provides group classes, private training and behaviour modification consultations for canines.
In September 2015 Lee achieved her CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer Knowledge Assessed) through the Certification Council of Professional Dog Trainers. When Lee added an Eclectus parrot to her growing family of animals in 2016 she became hooked on parrot behaviour and training. This led to her attending Parrot Life®’s Parrot Training Academy series, and we were so impressed we invited her to join Parrot Life® as an Intern to expand her knowledge of parrot behaviour, health, nutrition and enrichment. Lee has proven exceptional addition to the team as her passion lies in helping people build, improve and develop their relationships with their companion animals through better communication and by providing clients with a clearer understanding of how to interact successfully in partnership with their animals. This is achieved through the use of modern, science-based training techniques with an emphasis on reinforcement based methods. Through the use of Applied Behaviour Analysis techniques, Lee works with each individual animal to ensure that her clients are receiving the best training advice for their situation. Lee has now returned to Brisbane, and contracts to Parrot Life® through her business Animal Haus Behaviour and Training.

Jasmine’s passion for parrots started at the tender of age of 14 when she got her first parrot, a Cockatiel, named Jay Jay. Sadly, Jay Jay passed away and it was some time before Jasmine decided to add another parrot to her family, a Green Cheek Conure named Lola! Her love and passion for parrots grew naturally and along with it her flock.
Jasmine pursued her passion through the breeding and handrearing of parrots, and took it upon herself to learn all about nutrition and training as well. Over the past 4 years Jasmine has bred and handraised a variety of parrots including Lovebirds, Conures, Ringnecks, Quakers, Eclectus, Amazons and Macaws. Jasmine regularly takes on needy/abandoned baby parrots to raise and rehome, she also occasionally takes on older parrots in need to re-train and rehome.
Jasmine has a background in Early Childhood education, the skills and experience she gained in this field are incredibly valuable and we know these will serve her well as she deep dives into the world of animal behaviour and training.
Jasmine currently shares her home (and most everything else she owns) with her flock of 9 parrots including 2 Blue-Front Amazons, 2 Green Cheek Conures, 2 Sun Conures, 2 Quaker Parrots and her young Blue and Gold Macaw, Luna!
