Very easy to train. She knew her name and how to sit the day we got her, and it takes only minutes for them to learn things.Hm, I seen them trained but how easy are they to train? Like, you train them like a dog?? Or clicker train?? Is food the only reward? Can she play with toys?? How would she interact with other pets in the house??
They can be when bored. They like to rip things up, newspaper keeps her occupied but I've also read about pigs rooting up carpet or chewing drywall for fun. She makes a great housepet though. She enjoys sleeping on the couch and is quite the cuddler. Very big, but loves to lay in your lap and have her belly rubbedAren't pigs destructive? That is what I have heard/read.
Personally I would never have one in the house.
15-20 years. She will probably outlive every other animal in my house.How old is she and how long do they typically live?
She does great on the carpets. It allows her to jump up on the couch to go to sleep. If she comes in muddy I'm sure she would grind some dirt in, but her hooves stay very clean. It's her hair that holds the dirt under. But it rarely falls off if she is dirty.very cute! How does she do on the carpets in the house? I would think the hooves would do damage and grind dirt into them. I would love to have one, but dont think the significant other would be as welcoming to one :/
