Have you ever done something _really_ stupid, well I did yesterday <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/needhug.gif" alt="" />,I went over to my boyfriend's new place where his roomate, has a huge dog... not really realizing this I brought Echo, my suggie. Well Echo smelt the dog before I knew he was there, and got on the sofa, well Echo is really good about coming back and checking in so I wasn't worried until the giant beast of a dog pounded towards my baby. Well The dog got right inbetween Echo and I. Wcho thankfully being really fast got away and into the kitchen while my boyfriend grabbed him by the chain collar he had on. I got Echo and put him in a carrying pounch I take with me. Here's my problem, I think Echo blames me for the dog scaring the [censored] out of him and almost having him for lunch... he's bit me twice to the point it's made me bleed, and won't let me come in his cage, touch him or his pouch without crabbing, I don't think Echo and I ever fully bonded yet, and now I think it's going to be really hard just because it's been a good day and he hasn't calmed down at all... I've only had him about 5-6 months. If anyone has some good suggestions on how to say I'm sorry to a sugar glider, or any way of picking up the bond I was already working on with him quicker than starting over it'd be really nice. I feel really guilty and am never taking him over there again... thanks guys <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/worried2.gif" alt="" />

Just give him some time to calm down and maybe some extra treats from you. My boys all got really mad at me when I had them neutered and they pouted for a day or two. Then all was forgiven.

I know how you feel. Just sit by his cage and talk to him. Have some treats ready for him and he will come around. They do have little attitudes sometimes! I don't think there is anything much more pathetic then a pouting glider.

Definately let him chill for a day or too. Pamper him, give him treats, like strawberry yogurt. What happened was you broke his trust. You become his protector. By letting him get scared he is probably just a lil mad. Trust takes time and patience. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

This may sound crazy, but I swear it works!

Apologize to Echo. Talk to him. Explain to him in a soothing voice that you won't ever let anything big and scary chase him again. I swear some animals can understand us (or at least our intentions).

I know it sounds silly, but I talk to all of gliders everyday. They get story time in the evening. They lay in their pouches on my belly or lap while I either tell them all about my day or actually read them part of a book or something. It seems to really calm them down.

Above all, don't lose hope. The first day I brought Spaz home, he leapt out of his pouch and onto the floor were my very curious dog came running! Cory wouldn't hurt a fly, but Spaz didn't know that. That poor suggie tried to climb the wall he was so scared. For two days, he wouldn't do anything but crab and bite. It was frustrating, but I still handled him in the pouch gently and talked to him softly and he is doing much better (no more biting!). Gliders are very social and want/crave companionship. Echo will forgive you in time!

Best of luck to you!

Wow,
To the above, Dude. I SING to my glider, I have'nt had her for long and I may not be able to keep her due to a move/job situation. (waiting to see)But ever since I've started singing to her, she stops crabbing and stairs at me the whole time watching me and listening.
So as for talking to them, I think it really works. I can actually pet her and rub her chest and stomach and she just stretches her hands out and lays her head back. Its real cute.
SO TALK OR SING TO EM! THEY LUV IT!
