I’m interested in clicker training my guinea pigs to teach them tricks. The problem is I don’t want a clicker that is too loud that it will scare them. Do you guys have any suggestions for clickers that I could buy online for them?

I’ve never heard of anyone using a clicker. It is possible to train using a specific sound your self.

I use a cat/dog clicker. There are even soft clickers available, their sound should be less loud. But a normal clicker is fine as well.

I suggest to first just click several times without reason until they ignore it and then click and give food. When the connect the clicker with the food you can start teaching them tricks.

I wouldn't advise using a clicker.
I wouldn't advise trying to train a Guinea Pig full stop.
