Hi. We're new to our glider, but always hear how important it is to keep their minds challenged. To that end, what training or "tricks" have other gliders learned (such as one would teach a dog/cat/horse, etc.?

Mine come to their names.

jump on command

"wait" (like stay)

"stand" (up on hind feet and not allowed to grab for treat)

Once on my hand, if I stretch my arm out to the side, they will dash up to my shoulder. If Sal is standing there, they jump to him. They know the sound of shaky treats too. smile

Yin and Yang both wink on command and come when I call them. Yin will glide at any distance to me if I tell her to too.

But, one thing I made sure to teach all of mine was to get used to the sound of the yogie container being shaken and to come to me when they hear it. It was probably the easiest trick ever to teach and comes in handy the most. ^^

Blink on command! That is so cute!

I also shake my yogie container for them! Even my bunny comes to that!

Thanks for all your advice on tricks. So far our K.C. has learned the sound of shaking the tin can of nuts and yogie container. He jumps on command, also stands up for a treat, and when I am just holding him on my chest and talking softly, I can get a couple of winks out of him on command. All for a treat, of course. Once he's done with treats, he's on to his own jumping, climbing and exploring games. Hope our next glider will learn as quickly and easily : )

I've clicker trained many of my previous pets (including mice!) so I assume that gliders would be able to learn simple commands as well.
