There are so many fun and creative tricks you can teach your guinea pig to improve the bond between the two of you and enrich your piggy's life. Some are ideal beginner friendly tricks, such as circle, paws up, or pushing a ball around. There are also some that require a bit more time and practice, but are so much fun to teach, such as basketball, weaving through your legs as you walk, waving their paw, and playing fetch like a dog. The video below shows some examples of what you can teach your guinea pig with a little bit of patience (and lots of veggies!)
All the tutorials shown above can be found on this website (guineapigtricks.com) with detailed step by step instructions and training tips for each trick. The tricks under the Starting Tricks tab are best for beginners, with more trick tutorials like basketball and weave walking also available once your piggy masters the basics. Below is a list of all the tutorials in the video above. Click the links to visit each trick tutorial page and see more information about that particular trick.
Tricks can range from as simple as putting their front paws up on a low object, to more challenging tricks like shooting hoops.
