Frequently Asked Questions:

Do guinea pigs need a hideout?

Yes, guinea pigs need a hideout because it’s comforting for them to have a place to hide and feel safe. Some cages come with a built-in hiding area, generally under a loft. You can add your own hideaway if it doesn’t have one. They’re also important for use in playpens where your guinea pig may feel exposed. If you’d like another place for your buddy to lounge when in or out of her cage, consider adding a munchable guinea pig mat to the fun!

What size hideout do you need for a guinea pig?

The hideout size for a guinea pig doesn’t need to be large. That’s because your fur-iend goes inside to feel safe and cozy. She’ll likely want to curl up inside rather than stretch out, so it doesn’t even need to be as long as she is—and most guinea pigs are 8 inches to 12 inches long. While there are some guinea pig hideouts for sale that accommodate multiple friends, most hideaways are built for just one guinea pig occupant.
