So I know theres a thing called "tent time" and I've never heard of it before I joined this website. Do you use an actual tent? And what do you do?

Many of the users here have a Genji brand tent that they take their gliders into to play for a few hours. It gives the gliders more room to run around freely, jump and glide. They are also playing with the human, chasing feathers or climbing on and gliding from them. It's really fun.

You can also do "Tent time" in any glider safe environment. I personally don't have a tent and used a bathroom that we made sure was very safe for them.

For a bathroom, obviously make sure the toilet lid is down, and any drains are closed off. Gliders can get in to openings that are about 1/2 inch big, so also look for cracks and or openings between walls and cabinets that they could get in to, make sure they are all sealed off. Make sure the bottom of the door is also closed off.

The tent can be found on Amazon and other places. Here is one option:

Actually this is the one you'll want to order, the other only has 3 sides.

In our tent, we hung a braid of fleece from the top to the middle of the tent. They love climbing on it, like they are playing king of the mountain. We had a wheel w/us in their, also.
The more bonded they get to you, the more fun they are in the tent.

Most times bonding goes faster when you have a tent. We had room for our little hup tent in the living room. Our youngest son (now33) just shakes his head @ us whenever he would happen to stop by, & we're in the tent w/'em.

They need to learn that you are safe & good for them, & that will also take time.

We always have to go on their time to have the most bonded glider.
