It's amazing that you guys have beardies that know their names and respond to them. :shock: Did you do anything special to get them to learn their names?

one way is to just call out their name every time you see them, and eventually they could learn their own name, but if you want your beardie to come when it's called, you can put them on a leash and probably a slippery floor like wood floors or tile, then call their name and pull them closer, and give it a treat, then repeat it until they walk on their own towards you.

Wow. They're not kidding when they say it's a dog in a lizard's body.

But our beardie is more like a cat in a lizard's body -- he's got a mind of his own. Maybe we should have named him after a cat. :wink:

I've noticed that lots of beardies end up with an opposite gender name. People don't know to begin with and by the time they find out, the name sticks. Our "Puff" could probably have worked for a boy or a girl, although the dragon in the song is a "he." We were already pretty sure he was a male when we named him. That's what they told us at the rescue where we got him, and the vet agreed. :)
