Hi,
Often, when I’m having lap time with my oldest guy, he seems to go crazy and starts « attacking » my face. He wheeks and comes running toward my face and tries to bite me. He always did that eversince he is young but I never understood why. I don’t think he hates me, because he will come see me when I approach him and is often laying on his side when he is on my lap. Please tell me what you think this behaviour means.

Also the guides on piggy whispering, and establishing with your guinea pig who is the boss- cant link them from my phone, but Piggle used to be an attack pig when she was a youngster- gently biting and pulling on their ears when they overstep the boundaries is a great way to let them know that you want them in your herd and love them very much, but you are the boss pig :)

Is this why Bernie nibbles Dots ears? I started doing the same to dot, because she's a bit of a nipper. Sounds discusting, but she doesn't nip me when I do it, she just let's you. But still nips if you touch near her cheeks by mistake
