Weave walking is one of my all time favourite guinea pig tricks. It tends to be a more advanced trick, and works best with guinea pigs that are more confident and outgoing. It takes a lot of trust on the part of the guinea pig, to be comfortable with you standing above them and walking so close to them. Many guinea pigs are not comfortable with this at all at first, so make sure your steps are slow and deliberate, with no fast, sudden movements. Go at your guinea pig's pace, whatever that may be, and be patient. Even if your guinea pig doesn't master this trick perfectly, it's still a good trick for confidence building and to teach your guinea pig that moving around them isn't such a scary thing.
If you think your guinea pig may need some work on the taming and confidence building part before attempting this trick (or if you're getting stuck while working on this trick) visit the guinea pig Taming and Bonding page for tips on helping your guinea pig learn to trust you more.
