Tent time -how to leave/end? #1017216

Just did my first tent time last night. I want to know when tent time is over how to get them back to the cage without stressing them out. I lucked out with one - he ran into his pouch and I took him to his cage. But the other refused to stand still. I don't want to ruin any progress I have made by chasing them around, but I had to corner the other one and cup him with the pouch to catch him.( I tried treats but he took them and ran.) It took about five mins with him running around - he didn't seem too stressed, he might have enjoyed being chased- but I would hate to have to chase them every night. Thanks.

Treats are still your best bet if they aren't completely bonded with you yet. Instead of handing him treats, put them at the edge or even IN the pouch. You may have to show him first...then kind of toss them in there. smile You're right, you don't want to chase him if you can help it, this will only back things up for you so try the treats...all different kinds. One other thought...put a treat on the palm of your hand so he can climb up to get it and you can then place him in the pouch. This will also help to show him that your hands are good and they produce yummy things! smile

Mine pretty much know when I shake the mealie container that it is time to hit the sleeping pouch for the ride back to the cage. LOL Bribery... it works every time!

None of mine will willingly give up tent time without a treat. I let them see and smell a mealie or small yoggie and lead them with it to the pouch, then throw the treat in. Many times, I've gotten ready to get out of the tent with gliders hanging onto me, only to have them jump right back in as I'm climbing through the zippered door! Not fun when your tent is 7' square!

I spend a great amount of time with mine in the glider room, and when it's time to go to the cage, they all hitch a ride on me. It's another story to get them in the cages though. shakehead

My girls are sooooo good.
I call them to me, they jump on me, when I leave the room they know its time to go back in the cage and they go to my hands and wait there as I walk to the cage.
when i get to it, I put my hands in, they jump off and turn towards me and just wait for their treat.

one night when I wasnt feeling good and fell asleep early, my hubby figured he'd take care of feeding the gliders for me.

he was amazed at how good my girls are. when he tries to feed his boys he says its a fight to keep them from leaving the cage (I always put the food in while they are still sleeping, as that solves THAT problem) so he thought he would have the same problem with my girls (ha foolish mortal) he says to me the next day "I unlocked the cage door and they are both sitting there, they PUSHED the door open but sat there and waited for the food!"

I will say that when I take them out to play they do the same thing, they jump to me to come out when I call them.
