Are Harnesses Bad For Guinea Pigs?


Guinea pigs are social creatures that love to play and explore their surroundings.

However they are also very delicate animals and their fragile bones and delicate skin can be easily injured.

For this reason many guinea pig owners choose to use a harness and leash to keep their pets safe while they enjoy some time outdoors.

While harnesses can be a great way to keep your guinea pig safe it’s important to make sure that you choose the right size and type of harness to avoid injuring your pet.

Additionally you’ll need to take some time to get your guinea pig used to wear a harness before taking them out for a walk.

With a little bit of care and preparation you can help your guinea pig enjoy a safe and fun time outdoors.
