Where Guinea Pigs Like to Live
Guinea Pigs can be kept indoors or outdoors. Because of their large size, they will need a large cage or hutch, which will be at least four times their adult size, with a separate space to allow your Guinea Pig to exercise.
If your Guinea Pig is to live outside, choose a hutch which is fully waterproof, draught free and be raised from the ground to help protect from predators. During the winter it is recommended that you take your Guinea Pigs hutch into a shed or provide extra shelter such as a hutch cover to protect them against the harsh weather conditions.
If living indoors, choose a cage which has been specifically designed for indoor use. Your Guinea Pigs cage should be positioned away from radiators or direct sunlight and clear of any draughts.
Exercise & Play for Guinea Pigs
Guinea pigs are curious animals that will be active during the day, and will become bored if they toys are not available for them. They love to chew so chew blocks and gnaw sticks should be provided at all times.
Your Guinea Pig will also need space to run and jump around, so you will need to give them space to do this every day.
