Breeds like the Texel and Teddy guinea pigs get comfortable easily. They will start playing and cuddling the soft toys as soon as they get them.

Hollow tubes. The PVC or hay pipes can be constructed to make long holes where your pet can enjoy hiding. Only the ends should be smooth enough so that they do not have any sharp edges. They shouldn’t be very deep. These tubes can be stuffed with hay so that they can rest in them.

Stuffed tubes. Small and thin stuffed tubes are amazing for your pet to chew and take round the house. They can be washed from time to time and so are non-toxic and hygienic. You can also wrap some hay or veggie leaves around them for your guinea’s appetite.

Paper bags. While you market, the paper bags are plenty and handy at home. The guineas really enjoy the crackling sound of the papers. In these paper bags, they can hide and also hide their feed for later consumption.

Cardboard maze. Cardboard mazes and hidden food in them can also keep your pet captivated and busy. By instilling food-seeking habits, games like this can make your cutie smart and busy looking for food.
