About

Hey guys! My name is Jenna, and I’m proudly owned by 8 piggies (you can read about all my little furballs below!) I’ve owned and loved guinea pigs for more than 15 years. I’ve adopted, fostered, and volunteered with all kinds of guinea pigs and love learning everything there is to know about these little potatoes.

Training guinea pigs is also a huge passion of mine, and that’s how this website originally started. I love to teach people how to train their guinea pigs to do tricks and strengthen their bond in a fun and positive way. I post videos of all this on our Facebook page, YouTube channel, and Instagram, all under Amazing Animal Tricks.

All the content on this website is created and written by me based on my experience with my own piggies and things I’ve learned from other guinea pig owners. While I love sharing the things I’ve learned about guinea pigs, I cannot give medical advice as I’m not a vet.

I write about many other topics regarding guinea pigs on this site, so feel free to check out all the information I’ve put together on training, care, feeding, and more! The goal is to make this website a thorough and trustworthy resource for new and experienced guinea pig lovers alike. I hope you enjoy browsing the site and learning a thing or two about these lovable little animals. 🙂

Meet The Guinea Pigs!

My chill and happy boy. 💕

TJ is an insanely sweet piggy and so full of confidence and character! He’s incredibly intelligent but also blissfully oblivious. He’s quite a clown and always has to put his own spin on things. You can always count on him for a good blooper!

He’s also a little Houdini pig, and he will always find a way to get through any cage or fence that isn’t immaculately secured and locked. He was adopted from a local animal shelter and is now bonded with his girlfriend Willow, a spayed female.

Pretty Willow scouting out dandelions.

Willow was adopted from a local animal shelter at around a year old. She was a lab guinea pig up until her first birthday, and then surrendered to the shelter for adoption after that phase of her life. Willow is so curious and full of energy!

She didn’t really know how to eat veggies when I first brought her home, but TJ taught her that pretty quick. 😉 Now, she’s a huge foodie, and she has learned to love interacting with people and learning tricks.

Just leave the room for 5 minutes mom…. I won’t eat it all, I promise!

Peach is my diva girl…. Pretty and she knows it. 😉 She’s a tiny bit dramatic, but she’s also adorable and so sweet. She’s a big, soft, fluffy piggy who loves to be pet. She’s not big on active things but can be persuaded with food. Peach is best friends with Daisy.

Daisy is the sweetest girl. 💗

Daisy is super sweet and a super chill girl. She likes her food, and she also loves to be pet and told how pretty she is. Daisy is bonded with Peach. She was adopted from her previous owner who could no longer care for her. She has bounced around to a couple of homes, so her age is somewhat of a mystery, but she was supposed to be around 2 years old when I got her.

How did you get in there, Poppy??? 🤣

Poppy is a sassy white Abyssinian girl. She is always active, curious, and loves to run around and learn tricks. She is a typical Aby. Super smart and full of personality, but also a little bossy. 😆 She’s a fun piggy to have around with her cute antics and naughty personality. She was adopted from her previous owner who could no longer care for her. Poppy’s best friend is Pansy.

Such a cutie! 💗

Pansy is a cute girl who is bonded with Poppy. She is a little zoomie ball of energy, but she’s quickly chilling out with age. Pansy has a very sweet and inquisitive personality. She is a little foodie and she really loves learning tricks and interacting with the humans. She’s always eager to put her front paws up on my leg to beg for treats. She was adopted from her previous owner who was allergic to her.

Skylar was adopted from an owner that no longer wanted to keep their guinea pigs. She came along with her daughter Skittles (below.) Sky is full of energy and very intelligent, as Abbys often are. 🥰 She is very friendly, outgoing, and absolutely loves attention and learning new things. She’s incredibly curious and will run right up to greet me when I walk into the room.

Skittles is a cute and outgoing little character, just like her mom. 💕 She is quite an inquisitive little troublemaker already, getting herself trapped behind furniture and other objects. She’s incredibly bold for such a young piggy, and also a huge foodie. She’s also very social and loves greeting people (and seeing if they brought her any treats!)


I also have some piggies that have sadly crossed over the rainbow bridge. Forever loved and never forgotten… You can read more about these guys on the In Memory page.
