Sounds like Toothless doesn’t like to be handled much. She could change her mind, eventually. Handling twice a week is not too much, although if it seems to be stressful for her, only handle her after she’s had a couple of days off. That way any unusual cortisol spike from a stress-related response will be long gone. It also gives her a chance to mentally process the experience after she’s decompressed from a cortisol high, and realize that no harm occurred. Expect this to take many weeks, but eventually, I think you will find you have a much friendlier beardie.
