Dominance Is this ok for male guinea pigs??

I've had 2 male piggies for about 2 years now, and trust me when I say the rumble strutting will never go away.

It's nothing to be worried about as long as the piggies are both healthy and eating, and neither is getting injured by the other, and they have a big enough cage (2x5+ is recommended for 2 boys). My boys will rumble strut in circles around their favorite hidey sometimes, even if the other one is on the other side of the cage paying no attention. Even some teeth chattering, chasing and mounting is normal after they have been introduced and living together for months, or years.

Leave them to sort themselves out. Only intervene if there is bloodshed.
 
Just leave them together. There is NO need to seperate unless one is losing weight from not getting enough food or there is bloodshed. They will work it out.

Try to relax! They sound like they are doing really well, that behaviour is considered mild especially for newly introduced pigs.

My two males are so confusing too! My 6 month old will rumble at my 9 week old and then popcorn. He will sometimes be rumbling and popcorning at the sametime! Then they will go sleep snuggled in the same hidey. :) I say leave them together.
