Highland ... BEWARE
It is a mill
Reviewed on: Mar 11 2015 7:50PM
I've been researching these adorable creatures for over 10 years. I have contacted a lot of breeders and owners, vets and animal handlers and the one thing that I have heard most is ... DO NOT BUY FROM SOMEONE WHO WILL NOT LET YOU SEE THEIR GLIDERS. I emailed and asked to see the gliders and the email she sent was, "I have 40 breeding pairs and the females are all carrying joeys or have joeys. I don't bring people in to window shop because it stresses the moms out to have strangers around them. I do allow adoptive parents to come and handle their joeys, but I am not open to the shopping public" First of all, how can I choose my Joey's if I can't see them? I am buying to get a great pet not a designer one and I don't want to just look at pictures and choose from that. Second, 40 breeders???!!! That's too much unless you are a small group of breeders set up like a co-op. Third: ALL the moms are expecting or recently had Joey's? Forth: If having two strangers in their environment stresses them out, it's because they are not pets! They don't get the proper handling or attention and probably not the proper care either. I could see if they didn't want to just opened the doors and let tons of people in at the same time but two people should be able to come in and hold or at least see their babies without it stressing them out. This has all sorts of red flags popping up. I do see that they have a some positive reviews but a lot of people get friends and family to write reviews and some people get lucky and get really good pets. I really feel they are a mill and would not recommend buying from or supporting them... at all. If you do consider it, do some research and make sure to not just ask if they are USDA licensed but make sure you SEE their certificate as well. Sugar gliders are small enough that they could keep the expectant mothers in another room so that someone can come and look at the ones they have for sale. Check out mynasba.org it is a great site for information!

This breeder is very knowledgeable and respected in the glider community. She will answer any questions you may have but she seems to be on every single Facebook glider page and refused to sell to me because I asked for second opinions on one of these pages. If she thinks you aren't going to raise "her" joeys how she wants she will refuse to sell to you.
Note: While this particular breeder seems to know what she's doing, never accept anyone's word as law without doing your own research. There is a TON of conflicting info on gliders on the web so good luck!

I highly recommend this breeder. I have two from her and they are so sweet and docile. This is no coincidence. Highland Sugar Gliders breeds for docile temperament, as well as other traits such as genetic health and good body type. When I was still searching for a breeder to get mine from, I visited many of breeder web sties and gathered the impression that most of them just put male with female and assume they’re as good a pair as any. I appreciate that HSG embraces breeding goals, and carefully chooses pairs based on what desirable traits they have and the need for those traits to be passed on and improved upon in future generations. I hope other breeders follow their example.
In reference to the negative review below: I have read that gliders can catch human illnesses, and if there was a bug going around, it makes sense that they didn’t want too many people going into their facility. I don’t know the details here, so I can only speak for my own experience, and it was a great one. There was great communication, prompt follow ups - everything was handled in a very orderly, professional manner. I have two joeys that are dear to me, and when I decide to add on to my colony, I will get the third from them as well.

Very sweet glider
Reviewed on: Oct 1 2013 3:38PM
I got a male glider from them and he is super sweet! He was obviously scared the fist few days but he was never aggressive. He has never bitten hard and has only crabbed (and not for a long time) around three times for the three weeks we've had him. He loves getting attention and already grooms me. Definitely will consider Highland Sugar Gliders when I want another glider. :D

My boyfriend and I just brought home a female wf joey and she is so sweet and social. She gets along great with my other female and comes out of her pouch to visit us when we go near her cage. She is doing great! When we went to pick her up, we were given a full tour of the breeding facility which is amazing, very clean and all of the gliders we met were very friendly. It was a great experience and I would definitely come back here for another glider.
