Is this pampered guy dictating that you not pick him up yet or did I misunderstand ?

Oh , good job getting in the sneak peek ! But you really need to handle him, the sooner the better. Maybe you were following that misinformation about not handling them for a week or 2 as a baby [ which is not true, sad that it's getting passed around ] So now he's a bit of a bossy pants. But you just pick this guy right up....gloves + long sleeves if needed ....and hold him to your chest while near his tank, you can sit down of course. All done, calmly + gently. Hold him for 10 minutes a day, after a few days walk around while holding him to your body. This usually calms them right down as they are a bit shocked but realize no harm is being done.

Hey, that sounds like a plan....hmmm, I wonder what he's gonna think about that, LOL?

After a while he'll realize that it can lead to a new adventure. :) But yeah, just think of a kid who doesn't want to go to his first day of school, sometimes you just have to be very firm although still gentle + showing support.

Did you get him out at all ? What happened ? Don't let him determine the handling, you have to do this before he becomes an adult. Don't worry if he's not happy, just pick him right up + hold him firmly on your chest. He'll get used to it. :)

That's good, just stick to it and he'll get used to it after a while. Before you know it you'll have him sitting on your lap. :)

I had a family emergency yesterday and, didn't get home till after lights out.
Today when I got home I took him out again. Well, It went a little better "Hey,did you know that dragon can cuss?", me neither!!! Held him loosely once he settled down,(though it only lasted for a minute or 2), it didn't last as long as I wanted it to but, it lasted longer than he wanted, LOL!!!

We will try again tomorrow!!!
