House guinea pigs - guinea pig proofing your home
Living with guinea pigs in the house can be extremely rewarding. But the process needs some preparation and thought to ensure the environment is both safe and suitable for the guinea pigs. Remember that chewing is a natural behaviour for guinea pigs and if they don't have appropriate items to aim this behaviour at they generally aren't fussy about what they test their teeth on, so it is up to you to ensure your possessions are guinea pig proofed. You also need to ensure the guinea pigs cannot escape and become stuck behind furniture or potentially kitchen appliances, and when out and about, they do not accidently get trodden on.
