My husband and I adopted a pair of two year old long haired guinea pigs last week, they have gotten a bit more confidant with us and will eat out of our hands and let us touch their heads. But when we try and brush them they really don't like it. My husband managed to trap them in a big box to give them a little brush and I managed to snip a deadlock off of one of them in the cage (she was quite upset about it). I want to trim the hair around their bottoms shorter but they do run away. How can I get them to stay still? should I try getting them in a shoe box/washing up bowl so they cant run away. Some videos I watched had the pigs on a table or plinth while they were groomed, if I put them on a table will they run off and get hurt or do they instinctively know not to jump off a table?
