I also have parrots ( 1 amazon, 1 blue and gold, 1 quaker, 1 canary and 1 budgie) and have found that I feel more comfortable that my dogs are afraid of the birds.
Would you want to take the chance? I also have to make sure my birds won't harm my puppies (I.E. Amazon & Blue &Gold) :yikes
In our house we keep seperate time for the birds and the dogs. I always go back to " it is better to error on the safe side".
If my puppies are sulking I just talk to them so they don't feel as bad and know they aren't being punished. Maybe give him a special treat or favorite toy during the time you have Ruby out.

I have to say where the video is very cute... it scares the **** out of me. Several times the cavalier but its body over the bird (side comment :this bird is a endangered species) and could've suffocated the bird ...laid on its wing ...could've broke the wing...mouthed the birds head :yikes :yikes

Birds are so fragile ..for that matter so are the dogs (eyes) :yikes
Many times that dog was very vulnerable and if the bird choose to it could have caused serious damage.

Again ...Maybe this is different ..but ..in my dealings with animals ..Horses , birds , cats, dogs.

Instinct comes into play and they may be the best of friends for years then one day the play may become harmful/deadly. To one or both.

My bird almost broke my hand in one of those instant ...you touched me wrong moments.


Just for kicks I am posting this video to our Bird club to see what reactions come back.
