not sure if this is the right are to be posting a question on licensing or not?
but i was wondering how does it work, do you only buy gliders from a licensed breeder or is only suggested?
any and all info greatly appreciated

It depends, if they are usda licensed you know they have been checked out as far as their gliders health and housing etc...but you can only get a USDA license if you have 3 or more breeding females...So there are plenty of good breeders out there that arent licensed as well, they are only small scale or hobby breeders and dont have 4+ breeding female animals.

The best way to check and make sure you are buying from a good breeder is to ask lots of questions...the good breeders wont mind at all answering them all and would be glad to help, since they want their joeys to go to good homes smile

Ok so what I get confused about is...

A) Can you have 3 breeding pairs without being licensed? Or would that require a license?

B) Is it just your females you are keeping for breeding that count or any females you have?

I apologize, I'm sleepy lol! It's all going up and over tounge tried looking online but nothing is registering.

Here we go:


"Sec. 2.1 Requirements and application.

(a) * * *
(3) * * *

(iii) Any person who maintains a total of three (3) or fewer breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals, such as hedgehogs, degus, spiny mice, prairie dogs, flying squirrels, and jerboas, and who sells only the offspring of these dogs, cats, or small exotic or wild mammals, which were born and raised on his or her premises, for pets or exhibition, and is not otherwise required to obtain a license. This exemption does not extend to any person residing in a household that collectively maintains a total of more than three breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals, regardless of ownership, nor to any person maintaining breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals on premises on which more than three breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals are maintained, nor to any person acting in concert with others where they collectively maintain a total of more than three breeding female dogs, cats, and/or small exotic or wild mammals regardless of ownership;"

Thanks Meghan for posting that. I wonder if they changed it or if I was misinformed. When I called I was told 3 or more but I guess it is really 4 or more. Thanks for the correct info and link.

Thanks smile I probably wouldn't even do 3 pairs, maybe 2 we'll see lol!

But that still leaves me wondering cause from the sounds of it on that link.. unless they're purposely being kept to breed, then they don't count towards the 3 breeding females?? I got 4 females right from the get go in a non breeding colony, since then I've got another with her neutered cagemate.. I won't have my breeding female til around Christmas. This is all going up and over lol!

When I first read about this I must have found some outdated information (back in January.) Cause I had read any female that is able to reproduce counts, so at that point my dog and all 4 female gliders counted? It's so confusing lmao!

The law as written is "more than three BREEDING females".

How that is interpreted by your local inspector is up for grabs. Some say it is more than three BREEDABLE females because you can always switch their cage mates. My local office says it is "actively breeding females".

It has been said that is more than three breeding females OF ANY species (regulated by the USDA) in the house but I've not seen that written in the law.

Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.
