All beardies love soft blankets and the four blankets included in this gift set are made from soft fleece. The 2 solid color blankets and 2 coordinating print blankets are sorted for a male set, a female set, or unisex set. These 12" square blankets are durable, usable, inexpensive, and machine washable. They are not fancy, so that you can use them, wash them, and trash them when they are no longer useful.
Also included in this Juvenile Beardie Gift Set is a copy of our recently published Beardie Care Guide, compiled by Sarah Southerland, owner of Sarah's Bearded Dragon Rescue.
A colorful Party hat for the beardie is also in the set. We recommend that beardies not be dressed in costumes until they are about 1 year old. However, these hats are easily worn and delightful to look at.
When a Bearded Dragon reaches the 'teenage phase', around 5 to 12 months old, they become hormonal, grouchy, unmanageable and easily stressed. This is when Beardie owners decide they really don't want them. And it's becoming a huge problem in the reptile rescue world...what to do with unwanted Juvenile beardies!
We are adamant about....Adopt, don't Shop....when you are looking for a beardie to own. This 'teenage' season will subside and with patience, and gentle persuasion, you'll have a beardie that will steal your heart and soul.
Developing trust with a newly acquired juvenile beardie has its challenges. Slow and careful interactions for the first few weeks while the beardie is settling in, is appropriate. Do not force interactions between you and the beardie.
Start stroking the top of its head and down the back. Be patient, yet consistent. By carefully observing your beardie, you'll begin to understand when the time is right to gently hold them. Once accustomed to their new surroundings, they'll love to snuggle and by doing so, it will further build trust and companionship between you and them.
All our beardie creations are uniquely made and one of a kind. Each one is a little different from the next one. The profits from these sales go to help Sarah's Bearded Dragon Rescue. We also often send money and products to other national rescues to help with their beardie (and reptile) rescues.
We would love to have photos of your Beardies in their costumes or snuggling in the blankets. We'll post them (or you post them) on our Pampered Beardies Facebook page, and Instagram!
