Hi I was wondering if you could take a glider outside?

I take mine out ONLY if they are in a bonding pouch wish is tightly fastened. I wouldn't dare take them out any other way. If they were startled, they could take off and I don't know if I could find them. I would strongly advise against taking them out without being secured.

I've only done it once and it was in a parking lot with no place to jump to but me and the other person, and I only did it with my most bonded glider.

I really wouldn't recommend it. Sure you may think that you can trust your glider not to leave you, but all it takes is one thing to catch it's eye and it'll be off. worried

I let fuzzy out to play in the grass at my local park. He's super bonded to me. He loves to rol and play in the grass. smile If there is somethig to scare him, he jumps right to me. cloud9 There's never any dogs or kid's there. It's always so quiet and there's a ton of space for him to play. cloud9

I've taken mine out during the day...I used to have an awesome Arizona Ash tree in my backyard when I lived in Austin, & Noashi LOVED to play in that tree. Keep in mind, if they get spooked, they WILL bolt. Noashi & I are very close, but she got spooked by a truck & it took me over an hour to coax her out of that tree. ONLY ONLY ONLY do this if you are prepared to suffer the consequences of them getting loose...it's a lot different than Tent Time or Bathroom time.

I take fuzzy out in the day time. Normally about an hour or 2 before nightfall. It gives him more than enough time to play. ^_^

I know some people do it but it's very risky. I would say only with a glider you are very very bonded too. I have taken Cookie out a couple times but he runs right to me when he gets spooked by anything at all. And I make sure there are no trees or other things around for him to climb up in and get out of my reach.

I thought they weren't aloud in the sunlight? Or am I wrong?

Take them out IN the house several times under different circumstances before you try taking them outside. I have one that I am sure will come to me for protection but I still don't take my chances outside.

For me, NEVER outside unless completely secure in a bonding pouch. I have seen videos, but for me, it just is too big a risk. Once they are gone, the likelihood of getting them back are slim. Nope, def. not something I would ever do. JMHO.
