Litter box training a guinea pig?
« on: January 28, 2012, 05:07:38 PM »
So i have decided to litter box train my guinea pig (Star) I know she has hit sexual maturity because she has had two babies. But im not sure what her exact age is... :/...... So what kind of litter do i use? and how do i do it?

Did you have any luck with this? Was considering trying but not sure it's worth the effort.

Please let us know if it works out for you!
I have heard it can be done, and is quite easy to do, a lot of people on the guinea pig forums, use the C&C cages, and use part of it as the "kitchen" and it has mostly aspen bedding down for the flooring while the rest is fleece, and they use the aspen part as the litter box and most people are very successful with this!

LOL, sorry I could not help but laugh. I've had pigs for over 5 years and I tired that years ago and gave up. Guinea pigs as a norm, can not be litter trained. Some may but most wont. I've only had 1 pig (a foster) do it. I've had LOTS of personal pigs and foster pigs and he was the only one. Good luck.
