From Bored to Bliss: Unlock the Secrets to a Happy Guinea Pig
Transform Your Guinea Pig's World into a Piggies Paradise
Guinea pigs are intelligent, sociable and emotional animals. They require plenty of living space to socialise, run, hide, forage, dig and burrow safely as well as toys, puzzles and activities to prevent boredom and to improve their overall health and well-being - which is all any guinea pig parent wants for their furry friends. But, how do you create and maintain an environment that is stimulating and engaging enough for your guinea pig - where do you start?
Thankfully this is an easy one! You can find the answer to this and more in The Ultimate Guide To Guinea Pig Enrichment by Sarah-Jane White.

Whilst we have mostly shared our lives with cats and dogs, there is a special place in our hearts and home for the small furries - in our case hamsters. Our hamsters were called Frank, Finn, Spike and Bob and such was our determination to ensure that they had ample space to thrive, at one point their cages occupied over 80% of our office with the Good Vet & Pet Guide team consigned to a cramped corner of the room! So when we are invited to review Sarah-Jane White’s new book ‘Guinea Pig From Bored to Bliss’, we leapt at the chance!
Sarah is an experienced animal behaviourist and is the brains and driving force behind the award-winning Ruffle Snuffle range of enrichment toys. She is a firm believer in the importance of exercising our animals’ minds as much as their bodies and this shines through in her book.
Because Guinea Pigs spend the majority of their lives in a secure environment, it is doubly important to ensure that they not only receive the correct nutrition but also the proper amount of mental enrichment to ensure health and well-being. There is a welter of evidence proving that happy pets are healthier and a tonne of research demonstrating that regular interaction with animals can significantly reduce our stress levels.
Happy pets equal happy people - if it is good for them, it is good for us!
Why Choose This Book?
Sarah’s book is perfect for beginners and experienced owners alike. Sarah clearly sets out everything you need to know to care properly for your furry pal, whatever your level of experience. Without giving the game away (you’ll have to buy the book!)
