“What glider is the nicest”
Many adopters think that I am able to tell at the age of 4 weeks whether a glider is sweet and easy to handle. This is far from true. A glider can be calm and content and four weeks later the one with the most energy. Handling them means I am getting them used to people. I am making sure they are weaned from mom and eating well on their own. I am not able to make them perfect pets in a mere 6-8 weeks. When you adopt a 6 week old puppy you usually wouldn’t expect it to come potty trained and being able to sit, lay down, or roll over. While that would be great, it’s pretty unlikely. Bonding is a form of training. You will have to work with your glider continuously while it’s in your care. And much like, if you stop training a dog it will begin to have accidents, if you stop handling your glider it will become less and less handleable. The personality of your glider largely depends on the adopter. While some gliders may start out “nicer” than others, they will all take work to be great pets.
