Default hedgehog doesn't like running on wheel

so i just recently got a new hedgehog, and he does not like running on his wheel. i don't think his breeder had him use one because he seemed kind of confused at first. he has a lot energy and enjoys adventuring / exploring / running around, but i am concerned that he won't get as much exercise in because he doesn't like using a wheel. is there any alternatives to the wheel, or any ways to get him to start using it more often?

Some hedgehogs just like wheels more than others, as long as he is running around outside his cage, I do not think that you have to be concerned.

Try leaving treats on the wheel at night.
