    How do I stop my guinea pig from peeing and pooing on me?

    Having to change my clothes after only two or three minutes of holding my piggy is getting frustrating!
    Is there a way to teach them to go only in their cage???
    Thanks.

    In a word, no. But many pigs will signal you when they want to go back to their cage by gently nipping at you or your clothes. The best thing to do is to have several small pads handy, and always put a pad under your pig when you're holding it.

    Agreed. Mine have no problem doing their business wherever they feel like it. I always hold them in a waterproof bed or lap pad.

    exactly as bpatters stated, there is no stopping them but they will either do a "potty dance" or nip at you when they need to go. I justt keep a towel on my lap while I hold mine and they just go on it but it rarely ever gets on my clothes

    Domino used to pee on me a lot and then I thought I should buy a lap pad and then I did and he had learned to hold his pee in by then.
    Just today he held his pee for about half an hour when we were driving him somewhere. I didnt teach him, I guess he just realized that as soon as he pees on his Mum then cuddle time would be over!
    But I always put a lap pad under me just in case.

    Alright, thanks. I didn't know that nipping clothes meant that. Now that I think about it, she was biting my clothes.
    Thanks again for your time.
