Flip is using the bathroom all on his own currently. glad of that yet wondering if tbelow is some sort of strategy to gain them to pee in one location on a file towel or newspaper. i have checked out others on here say theirs does it and also was trained to execute it. How would you train them? occasionally he pees in the very same spot and also occasionally he pees on certain points in the cage but now always . Suggestions?

Re: feasible potty training?


Hi! I do not know what others have actually done, however I can tell you what I did and what operated for me. Basically I used the exact same values you would certainly to a dog or cat that you are potty training. Positive re-enforcement! If the squirrel pees or poops in his cage, wbelow you want him to, go "Good boy! Good boy!" in a very soothing and encouraging tone. Then when he is done, provide him a treat.This functioned for our Souther Flying Squirrel and she greatly potties in her cage currently. We continue to do the "good girl!" pep talk and provide her a little treat whenever we watch her "go" in her cage. "Accidents" are few and much between

Well, the previous 3 days have made me also even more interested in the training lol. Flip has actually been peeing all over the location. Normally as soon as he wakes up , I give him time in his cage to relocate roughly, acquire some water , go pee and also poop ( if he demands too). This was working excellent until lately. he"s been going when he gets up yet reportedly not as a lot as he has to. He waits till he gets out of his cage... if it"s time to eat, he eats then roams roughly a bit and also pee"s on me or the couch or wherever before. He peed on me twice yesterday like this and also when i put him over on my husband also that he appears to favor also, he pooped on him nearly as soon as he obtained on him. I store putting him ago in his cage when he does it so he can go, he appears to go however when he comes earlier out , he"s not shy about peeing, mainly on ME , aobtain lol.
