Here at The Pet Glider, we’re dedicated to providing our sugar gliders with the best care possible. It should come as no surprise, then, that glider health is high on our list of priorities. Since the beginning, we’ve advocated feeding gliders nothing but fresh fruit and vegetables and plenty of protein. This led to our development of The Pet Glider Nutrition System, which is based around The Pet Glider Fresh Diet, and of healthy treats, nutritional packages, and other sugar glider supplies owners can obtain from us.

In The Pet Glider's "Posts from the Pouch," you'll find a wide variety of information and news about sugar gliders, their care, videos, updates on our available gliders, and much more!
A lovable pet that brings owners unending enjoyment deserves to be provided the best home possible. At The Pet Glider, we strive to make that a reality for every sugar glider owner we encounter by stocking great sugar glider cages for sale we know from experience your adorable furry friends will enjoy living in.
The ideal home for a pet sugar glider is one that provides enough space for short glides and has vertical room for it to climb as it would in the wild. At minimum, the cage should be 2.5 feet wide and three feet tall, with vertical bards that are spaced no wider than half an inch apart. Finally, a suggie cage should not be finished in galvanized steel, which can be toxic for sugar gliders.

Houston, Texas (July 25, 2014) – There’s a lot of fun things to do in Austin: looking at cool graffiti on Baylor Street, taking a stroll on Zilker Park, and attending hip music festivals like SXSW, just to name a few. Of course, enjoyable experiences are made even better with a good buddy on hand. It’s not only people who need pals, though—sugar gliders need them, too! That’s why The Pet Glider is offering a special promo on sugar gliders for sale to Austin, TX residents.
Houston, Texas (July 24, 2014) – For all their cuteness and the hours of quality bonding time they provide, sugar gliders deserve all the care they can get from their humans.

“A sugar glider by any other name would be as sweet…”
-Probably not William Shakespeare
Chances are good that, if you’ve brought home a sugar glider from The Pet Glider, that little bundle of furry joy had a name. As the primary person in charge of showcasing our gliders on the website, most of those names are picked by yours truly, the author. Oddly enough, that process can be a surprisingly time-consuming one, and often the most difficult part of actually presenting a glider to the world at large. The methods can include researching lists of baby names around the world, plays on the parents names or physical traits, gut feelings (“This one looks like Erasmus…”), and quick polls of other Pet Glider staff (“Doesn’t he look like an Erasmus?”). Everything else is fairly elementary when posting a glider...after all, it *is* a certain color, and it *has* an out of pouch date. But *who* is this glider? There, my friends, is the rub.
Of course, all of this is done with the expectation that you, the new sugar glider parent, will be changing that name almost immediately.
While there are certainly far more important aspects of sugar glider care such as what diet you should feed your glider, what toys to have in the cage, and how to bond with your glider, the name that you give your new friend can be the first step in that long-lasting link between human and animal. As a quick wander through the Pedigree Program will show, there are an incredibly wide variety of glider names out there from the cute and quirky to the surprisingly formal. For some, picking that perfect name is a breeze, but for others, such as myself from time to time, it can be quite the challenge. That’s why I’d like to offer a few of the resources and methodology behind the naming of gliders here at The Pet Glider.
Both our Tall and Luxury sugar glider cages for sale have become integral parts when it comes to optimum sugar glider care. Not only do they serve as excellent habitats for your cute little pets, they also keep them safe and protected whenever they are away from your loving arms. To ensure that your cuddly pets will have an even grander time, we offer our new cage sets that will further enhance your sugar gliders' cage experience.
There’s nothing more rewarding about owning a pet than getting to spend time together learning about each other, and slowly adapting to each other’s ways. Not only does it benefit us as pet owners to be able to enjoy our pets in this way, our pets themselves experience the benefit of finding someone they can trust to take care of and protect them. It is for precisely this reason that we started a promotion last May to give away a free bonding kit, and the best part is, it’s been extended to August 31st!
Here at The Pet Glider, we know that big love comes in small packages—just look at our charming gliders as proof! To deepen the bond with your furry pal, though, you have to spend quality time with them. Fortunately, we’ve made this easier with our special promo. When you buy a glider at our Houston location from May 15 to July 31, 2014, you also get a bonding kit absolutely free!
