Guinea Pig Habitats & Cage Extensions

When shopping for a guinea pig habitat, you'll want to consider the specific habits and needs of these active, friendly creatures. Chewy offers lots of great guinea pig habitats for sale, including large guinea pig habitats, smaller enclosures, guinea pig habitat expansions and more. Here are a few things to consider before picking out a new guinea pig cage for your pets.

Guinea pigs need a lot of space to run around in, as well as an adequately tall cage since they sometimes like to stand on their back legs. A minimum of 7.5 square feet of floor space is recommended for one or two guinea pigs, along with a height of 12 to 18 inches for adequate head space. Single-level cages are usually best, since guinea pigs prefer flat, open spaces and tend not to like heights. The best guinea pig habitats will be much bigger than the minimum and have a deep, solid floor pan, with chew-proof wire sides spaced closely enough to prevent escapes. A deep, solid pan allows for lots of fresh bedding at the bottom and protects sensitive guinea pig feet from injury.

Be sure to choose a well-ventilated cage to avoid humidity, mold growth and odor build up. Terrariums and the like tend not to have enough airflow for guinea pigs, but you may be able to build or modify a cool DIY habitat for your guinea pig using appropriate materials and online tutorials. Rabbit habitats can also work well for guinea pigs if you make sure they meet certain size, material and comfort requirements.

Once you've chosen a suitable habitat, complete it with guinea pig hideouts and guinea pig beds for rest and privacy and provide lots of fresh guinea pig bedding for burrowing and elimination. You'll want to give your piggies lots of guinea pig toys to keep them entertained and of course provide a guinea pig water bottle and a few guinea pig food bowls for hydration and fuel. Some people like to get a playpen for extra exercise or attach a guinea pig habitat extension to the cage, so their pets have extra room to run around. Whatever guinea pig supplies you need to keep your little pets happy and healthy, you can find them at Chewy.com. Shop for the perfect guinea pig habitats on our site and get everything you need to make them an ideal home!

Frequently Asked Questions about Guinea Pig Habitats & Cage Extensions

What is the best habitat for a guinea pig?

The best habitat for a guinea pig will be a single-level enclosure with ample space for running around. Guinea pigs are afraid of heights and may hurt themselves in a cage with ramps and platforms, and they need at least 7.5 square feet of floor space for health and happiness. Wire bars and a solid floor work well for guinea pigs, and a bigger cage is always better if you have a choice.

What size habitat does a guinea pig need?

A guinea pig needs a habitat that has a minimum of 7.5 square feet of floor space. That usually means a cage that measures roughly 30 x 36 inches. Guinea pig habitats for two or more guinea pigs should be closer to 10.5 square feet. Look for cages with a height of 12-18 inches and avoid multi-level cages to avoid the risk of injury from falls. You should always get the biggest cage you can reasonably manage to ensure the mental and physical health of your guinea pigs.

Where do you put a guinea pig habitat?

Put your guinea pig habitat in an area that stays between 65-70 degrees. and isn't too humid, that gets natural indirect light, and is away from too much noise or traffic. It's a good idea to put your habitat in an area where you can interact with your pets frequently; a family room or living room may be best; but avoid areas where there's lots of disturbance or where small children may disturb them. Elevating the cage will make your guinea pigs feel more secure and help avoid drafts and vibrations, too.
