Guinea pigs are intelligent little animals that can actually be trained to do some basic actions. They’re not very flexible, so don’t expect your guinea pig to be able to do any tricks like cats and dogs, but they can often come when called and be trained to use a litter box. This section includes some help and advice for those who want to try training their pets, but bear in mind that some guinea pigs will be smarter than others, so don’t be cross with your pet if it never quite manages it.

Training your guinea pigs requires a lot of patience, but it's also a lot of fun! Collect some of your guinea pigs' favourite treats to give them a strong incentive to learn, and keep repeating the training for a few weeks to give your pets plenty of practise.
