10 Tricks To Train Your Rat/Mouse First – Mini Tutorials

Funny Hamsters Video Information:

An updated video on what trick’s I’d recommend training your rats first. The first few (spin, paw, come, jump through a hoop, jump to hand) are confidence building tricks, with come possibly being the most important “trick” you can train your rat.

Target, backup, and pull a string are also pretty easy to train, and have the added bonus of being the basis for many more complex tricks.

Finally, fetch and basketball can be considered a bit harder to teach, but are the basis and groundwork for just about every item-based trick out there. I recommend training your rat(s) tricks in this order as well, so by the time you get to fetch and basketball, your rat will already understand that their actions influence if they get a reward or not and you will know how your rat learns, and thus be able to train them more effectively.

Anyway, have fun training, and if you have any questions, feel free to comment them down below.

  2. Oh god i cant wait to get rats! This makes me so happy- i have mice right now but oh my god!! im in love! I've already taught one "Twist" (spin) and im so excited to see if he learns the rest!

  3. I got 3 new rats all age 1 1/2 year. Is it too late to train them? How long should I want to them to get use to the place before train them?

  4. Just curious but will i have to keep rewarding them when they obey the "come" cue. I mainly want to teach it to my rat just in case he scurries off and i need to find him. And im just worried that if after he learns it and i dont give him treats will he just start ignoring it. And also what treats do you recomend for training?
