We take Charlie out every night for at least 2hrs, usually 3-4hrs. I know this is a lot more than most people, but I think she really enjoys it. She is a "house-hog" in that she has free range of our apartment except for the kitchen which we block her off from. I don't have any other pets or children, so I don't worry about her getting into any trouble. I've pretty much hog-proofed the house as well. We have a Japanese style bed which is very low on the floor and she loves to crawl up and cuddle with us! I think it is very important to spend time with your little one. The more you do, the more they'll get to know and love you!

I've been taking Pickles out around 3 times a day at least 30 minutes each time in his snuggle bag. If he's in there he's pretty relaxed and doesn't mind it since he can just sleep even after a couple of days of handling (I don't know how long it's been since his previous owners handled him) I can tell he's starting to realize I'm not a threat and uncurls a little more each day. I know it's not all hedgehogs, but mine is completely relaxed by water. He loves baths that's the only time I've been able to touch him without him curling up and huffing. Like everyone else has said you just have to make sure it's everyday if you can!
