Best Guinea Pig Tunnels

In the wild, guinea pigs are not ones to burrow tunnels but they love to seek shelter in burrows of other animals as well as in tunnels formed by vegetation.

As we want to mimic the natural behavior of our pets when captive, it is a very good idea to get tunnels, which your guinea pigs will love exploring.

There are quite a few options out there, but by far, our two favorite options are shown below.

Best Guinea Pig House

In general, guinea pigs are very social animals that love to spend time together with each other and their human owners.

However, like the rest of us, guinea pigs also need their private space from time to time. For that, guinea pig houses are great as they’ll provide your pig with some well-earned quiet time.

You should get at least one guinea pig house per guinea pig.

Here’s what to look for in a guinea pig house

Material: You can get many kinds of guinea pig houses. Some prefer soft material will others will prefer to sleep on the floor in a simple wooden or plastic structure.

Structure: You’ll need something with a solid top, and solid wall with one or two openings on the side.

Hay and bedding? There’s no need to put hay and bedding into the house – the guinea pig will take care of that if it needs it.

Below you can see our top three picks when it comes to guinea pig houses.

Best Guinea Pig Treats

Guinea Pig TreatsGuinea pigs are rodents and as such, they have ever-growing teeth. As they are not that good at handling a toothbrush, they constantly need something to chew on to keep their teeth short.

Having some good guinea pig hay goes a long way, as they’ll spend a lot of time chewing this, but for variety, a guinea pig also enjoys some treats.

Some of these, you’ll have around the house and include:

  • Kale
  • Celery
  • Green beans
  • Bell pepper

In general, try to feed them greens rather than fruits, which are high in sugar.

Besides the things you have around the house, a lot of guinea pigs enjoy treats that are specially made for them. Below we have collected our top 3 picks for guinea pig treats. These are all safe to feed and will keep your guinea pig occupied for some time.

Best Guinea Pig Chew Toys

Guinea Pig ToysIn addition to treats which your guinea pig will digest, it is a good idea to have some chew toys around the house.

You can easily find something in your home including cardboard to chew on. Usually, cereal boxes or toilet paper rolls are some good options for this purpose.

While these are often good and solid options, there is always the risk materials not labeled as pet-friendly can contain residual chemicals that are not good for your guinea pigs.

And that’s why we recommend getting guinea pig toys produced for pets (unless you are sure about your household items not containing anything that can be unhealthy for your guinea pig).
