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 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! Gotta love cavies. Hope this helped!
