How Do We Know Guinea Pigs Bond With Each Other? Watch them at all times and look for positive signs such as popcorning or gentle sniffs of each other. They may even groom or relax together. Guinea pigs may display signs of dominant behavior such as rumble strutting, mounting, or teeth chatter. This is all normal behavior as they work out their relationship.
How long does it take for guinea pigs to bond with each other? Have patience, take your time, always do this on neutral territory, and don’t give up too soon. Bonding may happen in one afternoon or it may take months. What you don’t want to do is plop the new guinea pig into your existing guinea pig’s cage. Never try to introduce guinea pigs in one of their cages.
How do guinea pigs show affection to each other? Most guinea pigs don’t like to get wet. A guinea pig might also lick their person’s fingers/hand, which can be a sign of affection — after all, that’s how guinea pigs show affection to one another. Or the guinea pig might just like the taste of a person’s skin.
