This forum is so educational and full of knowledge that I know there must be a post about this somewhere but I just can't find it. So... can anyone tell me how to go about training my piggers to go "potty" in a specific spot? I have just made the move to fleece and would be very happy if they pee'd in a tray or something.

Thanks in advance ;)

The pigs will typically choose their corner and you're meant to put the litter pan there.

Ahhh... I hope it's that easy. Looks like my piggies chose every corner including the center lol

Mine poo every where, but they pee in specific areas & I believe it's like that for most people. I don't think they can help if a poo slips out! :expressio

Mine just poops whenever she is in a hidey house or blanket, or some where in her hay area.

Is it true that guinea pigs poop when they eat?

They aren't always eating when they poop, but they do a lot of it while they're grazing. In one end and out the other!

You will find most of the potty training threads here in the About Cages forum where your thread has been moved. Do a forum search for "potty training" or "litter training" and I bet tons will show up.

You can't train a pig really, they have to have the want to use a certain area or pan themselves.
