How To Pick A Guinea Pig House

A guinea pig hut can play an important role in the day-to-day life of your guinea pig so it’s important to know what you’re buying, why it’s good or bad, and it’s generally good to know what should be your focus points when purchasing one. For that and other information, you can continue reading this buying guide.

New Guinea Pig Behavior – A guinea pig that you’ve just settled into their new forever home will commonly look for cover. One such cover is a hide house. It’s their instinct to do so since they’re fairly timid animals and run away for cover if they feel endangered. The process of your guinea pig settling in should take a few weeks or months.

Other Important Cage Parts – With the first thing mentioned, it’s easy to realize why guinea pigs need these houses but when they’re in the hiding process, it’s important to keep the hay you have fresh, have your chosen bedding in, and constantly keep fresh water out for them. Since they’re active both day and night, it will be fairly common for them to sneak out during the night to fulfill these needs.

Building Guinea Pig Confidence – You should talk a lot to your guinea pig when they’re in hiding and don’t feel as safe as you’d like them to just yet. It’s also a great idea to give them treats whilst doing so because it builds confidence and strengthens the bond between the two of you. When they’re in hiding, you shouldn’t interact with them all that much by stroking them, holding them ad picking them up.

House Materials – A Guinea pig house should be made with natural materials and you should also focus on giving them a non-toxic paints house and one that doesn’t feature screws or glue. This considers wooden houses which are more common but you can also choose to get fleece and soft fabric material hideouts and houses, plastic hideouts and houses, or even grass hideouts. The choice is really up to you.

Play Houses – Your guinea pig is more likely to use the hideout area of the house you get but you can get ones with 2nd levels which are a great confidence builder if your guinea pig is afraid of heights. Often, a 2 level guinea pig cage is convenient but is a point of fear for them so preparing them for that climb using the ramp of a house is a great starting point.

House Sizes – The size of your single guinea pig cage should be at least 7.5 square feet and although there is such thing as too small of a house for guinea pigs, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll get one just like that. What you should think about is how you’re going to save space even by having a hideout inside your cage. The way to do it is with corner houses or houses angled at a 90-degree angle that fit there.

To Sum Up

Depending on what you want your guinea pig house to look like inside your cage, how big your cage is, and what you want to achieve with the house, you should choose one on your own accordingly. These are an important part of a guinea pig’s life so make sure you get one, especially if you are a recent guinea pig owner. If you’re missing a cage, you can always read the article about outdoor guinea pig cages or indoor guinea pig cages. If you’d prefer to read about all of the guinea pig cage types and check out the best ones in each category, the article about guinea pig cages might satisfy you.
