    I have a guinea pig that I have tried to train to sit up. She is 3 years old now. Is she to old?

    I have tried to train her to sit up since I first got her. Is she to old or to weak to learn to sit up?

    It may be slightly harder than if you had a younger pig as when they get older, they are more set in their ways. However, repetition and positive reinforcement should probably do the trick for training her (pun intended.) I trained my guinea pigs when they were about 2.5 years old smile And no, she shouldn't be too weak to be taught, but they normally can't sit up for more than a few seconds. At least, my lazy pigs can't! smile Gotta love cavies. Hope this helped!
