If you already own a pet hamster or plan to get one, you've already discovered that hamsters are fascinating and intelligent creatures. This book will advise you on virtually all aspects of caging, feeding, training, and general hamster care. You'll find lots of do-it-yourself ideas on ways to improve commercially available pet enclosures plus specific hamster-training instructions. Once owners teach their hamster to welcome their touch, training can go on to include many games with widely available cage toys, as well as litter training, and even leash-walking. Titles in this series will be much appreciated by owners who don't know how to get started training caged pets, but want to learn. Correct training begins with having the right kind of housing and equipment, then getting all members of the family acquainted with the newly arrived animal. Training Your Pet books feature full-color photos on nearly every page, tips for hassle-free travel with a pet, advice on managing behavior problems, and a selection of games that owners can teach their pets to play.
