So I have NO IDEA how to train my baby Little-Guy to do all the fantastic things I've read about...

I'm starting with his name (Little-Guy), and then I wanted him to fetch...

I don't even know how to get started in training him!

Any ideas? Any advice?

HELP!

(PS: is popcorn okay for rats?)

i have the same problem..everyone tells me you have to do a lot of trust training until the rat actually comes to you. Try handling it for 20minutes 2-3 times a day until the rat gets use to you. Then after it trust you and comes when you call its name you can start training it.

the name thing is easy. every time you say his name give him a treat. eventually he'll conect the two and when you're a little ways away and call his name he'll come looking for the treat. the other tricks are bit different and i'm not sure i how i managed to train pocket to roll over but it was the same principle. gave her treats when she did the desired trick.
