You Do You Get Your Guinea Pig To Trust You?

I just bought a guinea pig, she's 3 weeks old and is very timid, how can I get her to like me? And I will get another one to keep her company.

Well,my sister's ones died (OF OLD AGE, I HAVE GOOD ADVISE) but handle them, also, hand-feeding helps too, try to spend as much personal time with him as possible without doing it 24/7!

I dont know too much, like many other people. but I would suggest being gentle, not pushy. Give it space, don't suffocate it.

I know alot about Guinea-pigs,i'm sort of an animal expert, my advice is to get another guinea-pig (they don't do well on their own) I have two sisters and they get along just fine I called them Pip and Squeak!

Hand feed her, at first just watch and give her pats. Eventually you can pick em up

I have one guinea pig. It takes time for them to like you, but I took her out of her cage to pet her, and fed her occasional treats and she eventually liked me. Guinea pigs are happier with a another guinea pig in the cage, so it might help you a little bit.

Hmmmm.. I have 5 guinea pigs and they run from me a bit but they just dont like being pecked up. Anyway what i would say is give them a nice large cage if they dont have one yet, also the piggie will want a friend i know you said you were getting more, also taking them out of the cage every day and given them FOOD will make them happy and love you! and talking while feeding them is very nice and they will get used to your voice. AND (sorry this is getting really long) when See More▼

give your guinea pig lots of attention. put him/her in your room or wherever you are most so that they get to see you a lot give them some free time every day give them a toy or two and don't hurt them or ignore them.
