Sugar Glider taming, and barking?

Question by Erin: Sugar Glider taming, and barking?
I just bought a little sugar glider about 2 weeks ago. She would crab, and bite me. Now she is coming around, and only crabs when I disturb her sleep which I was told would happen. But I was wondering how I could tame her more, and a lot quicker. She lets me pet her in the cage but when I try to hold her she freaks out. I know it takes some time for that but she is so adorable, and I just want to love her up. I also heard her barking this morning? Which I was told it’s her way of calling me. I bought her a bonding pouch, leash, and sleeping pouch for her cage. Should I just stick to this method until she is more trusting of me. I speak very softly to her, and constantly call her name so she learns it. I would just like some advice from current, or previous sugar glider owners. She is definitely a good pet so far. Also should I buy her a companion now while she is only about 16 weeks old? Thanks in advance, and rude comments should just be kept to yourself!!!!

Put her in your pouch each day & let her sleep there for a few hours. This should help you two bond. Also, try feeding her some treats by hand (mealworms, crickets, marshmellows, bananas).
Hope this helps!
