Basic Skills To Teach Your Pig

There are a few basic skills to teach your pig so that you may have a well-mannered, easy to control pet.

Teaching your pig commands, tricks, and basic skills at a very young age will set him or her up for success. You are teaching them the things that you will need from them to keep them safe and happy and in effect keeping the family proud and in control. Pigs are highly motivated by food.

Teaching tricks and skills are simple with as mall, easy to handle, and quick to eat rewards such as air-popped non-salted,non-buttered popcorn, cheerios, shredded wheat, a small bite of an apple, quartered or halved grape. Pigs thrive on routine. Training time should be a specific time every day when your pig seems most focused. Not before mealtime or when your pig is hungry. Training sessions before bedtime give your pig a great physical and mental workout for a restful night of sleep.
