Hi again. I have yet another question. I was wondering...should I have both gliders in the same bonding pouch? I have been carrying them both around in the same pouch, but just read that I should not due that. They each should have their own pouch to not bond to much to each other but more to you. Plus...I did try it tonight, and working with them was a little easier than trying to juggle both during bonding time. Baloo seemed more focused on the bonding lesson.

as long as they live together, they can bond together!

If they're living together, you should definitely have them together in a bonding pouch whenever possible. bonding with two is no harder or different than bonding with one. thumb

Here is the information I found while browsing, that is why I am asking. Information from Sun Coast Gliders site.

"Daytime is the best time to bond. Remember that we said bonding is about trust. If you can handle your babies one at a time and get them to go back to sleep (which is exactly what they are inclined to do during the day), then there builds the trust. Overly frightened babies will not want to go back to sleep. Babies who feel safe and secure will go back to sleep. And that is what your job entails. Try to get your joeys to go back to sleep and know that you are taking great steps toward bonding.

With more than one glider (and you really should have more than one), work with each one individually. This is very important. If you are bonding with multiple sugar gliders at one time, then physically separate them. They can live in the same cage, but when working on bonding time, physically separate them. You can, of course, carry them at the same time, just do so in separate bonding pouches, pockets, or one in your cupped hands and one in a pouch. If you keep them together in the same pouch, they are likely to cling to each other to feel safe and secure. You want them to learn that you are safe and their cage is safe. This will incline them to seek one of these two places if startled."

Wow what a great subject for debate this one is roflmao
I will talk about my duck for a minute...

We had 2 ducks. While they both bonded to us, they certainly were each other's first choice for companionship. When we began to get complaints about the female (wouldnt shut up..go figure)we knew we had to get rid of her. The relationship with the other duck and us blossomed like crazy!

I have always told my husband that one is better as they will get attached to you as opposed to each other.

HOWEVER! And that is a big however....From the experience of the hundreds of people I have met on this forum, it seems as though gliders have such deep personalities that you can indeed bond with 2 at the same time. If you plan on carrying 2 together what is the difference anyway? If you PLAN on carrying only one at a time then I would say to do that so they get used to being separated, but its not necessarily a bond to you type thing.

I experienced this with my ferret, Baby. We had 2 ferrets and they were always together, but when given a choice of staying with his ferret companion or me, he would choose me (he adored me).

My gliders, Arwen and Gizmo I sometimes carry together, sometimes separate. Gizmo doesnt like to travel with me, Arwen does. I dont think in their case it has anything to do with being carried together or not. Even when I bring them out together, Gizmo lets me know she isnt real happy.

I think it is up to the individual glider how well they bond to you. My girls like the alone time, my hubby's gliders like to go together.

So to sum it up. I think Lisa at Suncoast may be right but IN PART. I also believe all the other glider owners that you can still successfully bond with 2. Look at it this way, 2 together feel safe, and they make you a part of that, so THEY feel safe together and with you!
