If you choose the litter box route, you want to make sure the box is big enough for your pig to be able to move around in, so he/she can comfortably do their deed. Pine or Aspen PELLETS or all natural bedding is the best. NO CEDAR shavings, because it is VERY TOXIC. But you can use kitty litter as long as its 100% all natual. No clumping or scented litters because if ingested these could be fatal to your pig.
If you choose the puppy pad route, any brand is fine to use. You will want to place them on a shallow tray or peice of plastic large enough for your pig incase of an over flow. Some brands are super absorbant, to where others are not. Most puppy pads are small, so you may have to overlap some of them.
Also known as a doggy door! These are extremely popular, especially if you have a fenced in yard where your pig can come and go as he/she pleases. They work great and the pigs can be trained to use them very eaisly, espeially ifyou have a dog already using it. The pig will parge up with the dog and the dog will actually train the pig to use it!
Piggy Potty Training 101
Pigs being very intelligent, are one of the eaisest animals there is to potty train! Regardless of the method you choose, most pigs can be trained in less than one week! Babies are just as easy to train as adolecent & adult pigs. However, they will need to be confined to a small area when you are not with them, because until they reach 4-6mo they cannot hold it like the older ones if they have a way to walk to get to their potty area. Whether the pig is 1 day or 5yrs old, most of them will use whatever method you choose faithfully within 3 days!
At anytime you can change their potty method over to a different one, and most will take to the transition very easily & quickly. Usually within just a couple of days!
We recommend starting all babies off with the pads or litter box and converting them over to another method once they are older if you choose not to stay with either of those methods. Its much eaiser on the pig if you do it this way.
