Skateboarder Parrot Helps Owner's Mental Health

Brat the Parrot entertains visitors to Pier Plaza and is a service animal for his owner.

Along Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach, or other parts of San Diego, you may run into the animated duo Brat the Parrot and his owner Greg Jagow. 

Brat loves to eat ice cream but he's more than just a pretty, talking bird. He can skateboard, play hide-and-go seek, and for Jagow, Brat is a service animal.

Jagow is bipolar and schizophrenic. Sometimes Brat keeps him company, and sometimes he helps Jagow decipher what's real and what's not.

I met Greg and Brat at the beach benches outside from the Plank. Brat does a radical, flying 360 and my young boys loved the show.

Greg is kind, gentle and all heart. He and Brat are an entertaining and endearing team. Brat has even been known to parasail and surf on occasion.
