Check that link out. It was me talking to someone who bought a dove. Some of the stuff in there could be helpful to you. And seriously, doves should be bought in pairs.

As for routines... sorry can't tell you how to do any... that would be exposure, if you can't afford any material, then I don't know what to say. I think you should atleast save up for Marian Chavez Encyclopdia of Dove Magic (book), it has A LOT of tips, how to train, and tricks. And it isn't all that expensive.

Something you might want to do, might be a dove pan I guess.

It depends on your area, and your pet store. In my area they used to be around $20 each, and now they're about $35. But that is my area. It can vary.

Please don't get a dove and think all you have to do besides traing it is feed it. If you get a dove or any type of bird you need to take it out of it's cage at least 30 minutes per day or you are just torturing it. :( You can't get a bird and then forget about it when you aren't using it in your act, please remember that. It would not be fair to the bird to spend it's whole life in a cage. It is still a living creature and has feelings. Sorry if I sound like your mom but I have had a bird for about 9 years now and know the responsibility required. Congradulations on getting a dove btw. :D

Well i got my dove like two weeks ago and i am soon buying unmasks #1 to train my dove.........i made a mistake and bought only one but i take it out a lot and play with it and dont just ignore it.at first i was only buying the dove for magic but i was wrong it is my pet not a prop...i am devoted to take care of my dove.and it is true it is a big commitment just like a dog but if u can handle it they make great pets... i want to start doing an act with it after i train it i want to use my act for the magic castle but i cant use self working tricks so i dont kno what to do but i cant wait to train it to fly back to e instead of clipping its wings again. if u want to get a fdove consider that u have to spend atleast 30 minutes with it a day, u have to clean its cage daily, u have to train it which will take like 6 weeks, u have to fees it right and take care of it for a long time for they live for up to 20 years.....but do not consider getting a dove just for magic....consider getting a dove as a pet not prop. i hope this helps if u want to get doves and make sure u do RESEARCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
