I am getting two gliders on May 8th. I was wondering if there was any articles that people have or any caresheet kinda thing or videos that people have. I don't know the bonding basics and how to "train" the gliders or bond to them. Does anyone have any good information?

Thanks,
Josh

Those articles that Connie gave you are great!

bonding with sugar gliders is working on their time and their terms. The basics of bonding is time, patience and consistency. This is what they need to learn to trust you. Animals can sense fear. If you show any sign of fear and anxiety, your sugar gliders will accordingly feel senses of fear or anxiety as well.

I play soft instrumentals 24 hours a day 7 days a week, I believe that soothing music plays a big part in the calmness in both you and your sugar glider.

Gliders will crab whenever they are afraid. At first when you bring them home is when your bonding starts. Every second from there on counts as bonding. Let them get used to their environment first, sit back talk or sing to them. Most importantly, learn their body language and get to know them. Don't rush anything.

If you can understand how they think and feel, what makes them afraid, and respect that, you will have the most fulfilling journey of your life.

After a few days you can remove their pouch from the cage during the day while they are sleeping. If you hear a crab or two, it's alright, they will crab to anything that is unknown to them or make them feel insecure. I personally slide the pouch inside my shirt in the beginning, this way the new glider can get accustomed to your motions, voice and scent.

As soon as they are comfortable with being in the pouch in your shirt, you can start to pet then gently from the outside of the pouch and speak to them in soothing voice. I drop a piece of apple into the bonding pouch to prevent dehydration. As they get used to and accepting you petting them through the pouch, you can gently slide your hand in the bonding pouch and start to pet them.

Gliders bond by scent and by leaving pieces of fleece with your scent on them in their pouch, will help with the bonding process.

The more time you can spend with your glider, the closer your bonds will be.

Be calm and confident when approaching new sugar gliders. If you are determined and understanding combined with patience, any sugar glider young or old can be bonded.

Hope this helped. thumb

Also you need to always be aware that you need to accept them as an individual. Not every glider bonds the same as another.

Please do not be disappointed if they dont act like the gliders of someone else.

Visit the "my gliders" link in my signature, I have written a few bonding "articles" as well you may enjoy.
