Take your hedgehog between the shoulder blades by the neck and gently lift.

I have seen this done and maybe it works for some people but I think if I ever did that with Dumbles he would give me the most serious stink eye ever! lol!

Just curious... but why would you ever need to scruff a hedgehog?

There are a few situations where scuffing is beneficial. For example, if you need to check something suspie on their underside, feet or legs.

Also place a hand on their rump to help support their weight.

Yeah, Reggie isn't a fan of it either. I generally try to avoid doing it as much as possible

I needed to clip her nails and this stubborn little girl hates it.

Thank you! Does it make them sort of immobile like it does for cats?
