How do I make my guinea pig more confident?

Answer

Be patient. Hold your guinea pig gently and hand feed it with grass. Talk quietly with it. Get it used to coming to you as you hold grass outstretched. I believe a guinea pig’s confidence is linked to an owner’s patience.

Maybe it needs a smaller home for a while, so it is not so easy to hide from you. Or perhaps it needs a friend. If you had another friendlier guinea pig, this one might follow its lead.
