As title says. Not sure why she is doing this.
Try covering the glass or using a tint film on it so the little guy can distinguish between glass, which it can't get out, and an open space, which it can. It may also be that it can see a reflection but it's more likely that it wants to explore as it can see out.
In my opinion it's not that they want out for cuddles or food or anything like that. It's purely down to the fact that they can't get their little heads around the invisible force that is stopping them from exploring.
To relieve your lizard of stress. To halt/prevent 'nose-rub'. To stop irritating scratching noises. To stop your glass being scratched. To stop your lizard wearing it's claws away. But I suppose none of these are concerning.but seriously why bother.
It won't stay in because YOU let it out, to no benefit to the Dragon. Maybe if you tried to cover up the glass it would stay in it's vivarium and not constantly want out to sit on the sofa.My beardie WON'T stay in his viv, yes his temps are fine, he has space and a place to hide.
Why bother was in relation to this particular beardie, which I'm assuming is captive bred, I wasn't refering to your collection as I have no idea what you have, except they are mostly wild caught. Mine goes in on his own accord. Why should he be restricted to his viv if he wants to come out. Australia is a little bigger than my viv, not much I grant you, but a little, and a bit more interesting. Wearing his claws away? no more so than walking on sand rock or wood, oh and by the way, they need to wear a bit or they get deformed from being too long. No benefit to the dragon? In who's eyes? Yes wild caught will be more skittish because their not in their natural environment, so it's to be expected, and in this instance then by all means cover the glass so they can't see out, but then you can't see in, so whats the point of having them, may as well leave them where they were to enjoy a stress free life, except for worrying when the next person was going to try and catch them to be put in a dark Viv. Small lizards generally do move quickly, they have to to avoid predation, I have some dwarf day geckos in a glass viv (sorry) whilst they are small, I'm not sure how small in relation to an owls penis never having seen one, they hide only when I open the viv doors to put the food in, but as soon as they hear the latch click they are on the hunt.To relieve your lizard of stress.

Also it ain't always as easy saying just let it out and then pop it back in. Certainly not in my case. Many of my animals that scratch at the glass and 'window surf' are wild caught. So are very skittish, extremely fast and many are smaller than an owl's penis. It's one of the reasons I'm not a fan of complete glass and plastic vivariums. Covering, as opposed to opening, the vivarium doors is a must with many nervous WC, and sometimes CB, species.
Mine is only out if i'm around. i have no children at home anymore, this may give a indication of my age. I am fully aware about his need for heat and UVB and he's only ever out for 20mins max per time. When and if he slows down and stops I pick him up (unless he's on the sofa) and put him back where he basks and warms up, but most of the time I'll put him back if I think he's been out long enough and getting cool (unless he's basking in full sunlight (rare in this country admitted) then I'll leave him to benefit from the suns rays).I think someone here is missing the point... yes its fine to let the beardie out for a bit but it needs the heat and light in its viv. Also it may not be practical to have it out all the time, pets children, work... the list of reasons goes on.
I think in any case that we should all be able to agree that a reptile should have almost all of its needs met and be able to be content within its enclosure. If covering the glass temporarily helps them to adjust then there is every point in using the method.
