Default Pooping

How do you potty train a hedgehog so it doesn't pee and poop on you when you hold it?

Default Re: Pooping

I tried by always putting him in the "litter box" area if he was about to go...however I wasn't able to successfully litter train mine. I've heard some are successful but many are not, depends on the hedgie. In his cage you can see if your hedgie tends to always go in the same place and then put the pan there. When I have Henry out I always keep a towel nearby and lay it down on the couch or bed if I am going to set him down. How old is your hedgie? Babies poop A LOT and that will get much better as they get a little older. When I first brought my hedgie home at 10wks he was a little poop machine and now thankfully I hardly ever get pooped on anymore!

She is 6 months old and I don't have her litter trained. I tried putting her in her litter box when she started pooping but she stopped when I set her down.

Just keep at it. Any time they poop put them and the poop in the tray. Pay attention to when they start making their poop stance, and get them in the tray. Or if that doesn't work, just put them in a small tub of warm water when you get them out, and they'll usually go before you get around to activities.
