Owning a small mammal as a pet can come with its own set of benefits but it can also come with its own set of difficulties and headaches. Some small mammals can have some very bad habits. It will be the responsibility of you, the owner, to curve these habits and find ways to redirect them. Some of these habits may include not using a litter box or chewing on wiring around the house. It is important to train any pet so that it understands what is expected of it from its new family. However, it is especially important to train smaller mammals, even more so if you plan on letting them out of their cages from time to time. Smaller mammals can be trained, despite many people’s believes. A lot of people feel as if smaller mammals are too small to be intelligent and therefore they believe they cannot be trained. This is nonsense and do not be one of the people who believe this. Smaller mammals may be small but they are still living mammals so therefore they may be trained. It will take time and effort but it is possible. There are different ways that you can train your small mammals and different animals may need different training approaches than others. It is important that you understand that the first method you try may not work. Do not give up hope and keep trying until you find something that works. Your hard work will surely pay in no time at all. Let Us Know What You Think!

“Compact, easy-to-care-for, and a bundle of fun” is how author Virginia Parker Guidry describes the irresistible guinea pig. Ideal pets for families with children, cavies (as they’re often called) are clean, odorless, gentle, loving, and entertaining. This Complete Care Made Easy Guinea Pigs encapsulates all the virtues of these perfect small mammals and gives new owners practical advice about how to care for them. In chapter one, “A Guinea What?” the author talks about the guinea pig’s natural history—they’re neither pigs nor from Guinea, but rather a rodent from Peru—and how scientists classify this very unique mammal. To decide whether the guinea pig is right for you, chapter two discusses who makes the ideal owner and presents thirteen popular breeds of longhaired and shorthaired guinea pigs and the colors available to pet owners today. The chapter “Finding a Healthy Guinea Pig” offers solid advice about selecting the right guinea pig, where to purchase or adopt, and the preferred sex. A complete chapter on preparing for the guinea pig offers the reader excellent advice about acclimating the new pet to the home, selecting the best cage and hutch, and pig-proofing the home. The subject of understanding guinea pig behavior is discussed in the chapter “Living with a Guinea Pig,” which also covers daily-care topics such as feeding, grooming, handling, exercise, and litter box training. Keeping the guinea pig healthy is discussed in “Staying Healthy,” a chapter that covers preventing illness, choosing a veterinarian, and common ailments. The final chapter “Just for the Fun of It!” explores games, toys, activities, and showing guinea pigs. The appendix includes lists of pig-specific clubs, organizations, and websites. Glossary of terms and index included.
