Taming Techniques

<h1>Hamster Taming Techniques</h1>
<p> A hamster is a cute and emblematic animal. They are small, about the size of a mice, with an <strong>average life span</strong> of about one to two years.</p>
<p>If you look at a hamster’s ears, they are very small. Most people do not even realize how long their ears are because they are small. However, when looking at the right angle, you can see that the top of the ear is thicker than the rest of it. This is how people can tell it is a Russell’s vole, which is another name for a hamster.</p>
<p>Voles have <em>white patches</em> on them that change color when scared or excited. These <strong>look like fur</strong> on top of the hamster and make them <em>look like something</em> is backing up or moving around.</p><h2>Hold hamster gently but firmly</h2>

<p> When holding your hamster, be careful not to crush its bones or twist its body. This can lead to crushing ribs, shoulder, or back.</p>
<p>When playing with your hamster, <em>make sure</em> you know the dimensions of its cage ornaments and keep a watchful eye for any changes in size.</p>
<p>Make sure the habitat is appropriate for the hamster. A <strong>smallish habitat may</strong> be needed to help it get accustomed to living there. A heavy rock or <strong>sheet metal could prove fatal</strong> if done wrong!</p>
<p>If you spot any mites or other problems in the hamster, get it help immediately! Mites can spread very quickly, and sometimes when they are young they do not notice them making it worse.</p>
<p>Keep an eye out for signs of <em>old age</em> and death by looking for lethargy or lack of activity.</p><h2>Stroke hamster gently</h2>

<p> When handling a hamster, you must be careful to pay attention to his needs. He will have different “urges” than you does.</p>
<p>Hamsters are <em>naturally curious animals</em>. This may help them in taming as they <em>run around trying</em> to explore everything and everything in their surroundings. They are also very independent creatures.</p>
<p>If you put too much effort into controlling your hamster, he will realize that he can act out his desire to get out and <strong>roam whenever</strong> he wants and what place he should be.</p>
<p>If you want to really set your hamster free, then you must understand the needs of this animal.</p><h2>Make slow movements</h2>

<p> Part of being able to tackle a hamster is <strong>making slow movements</strong>. This means not having to run, not having to jump, not having to carry your pet. All of these things make more space in your schedule and allow you to be more patient with your hamster.</p>
<p>This is important because hamsters are nervous creatures and can <em>get scared easily</em>. When trying this on a small hamster, you must be very careful as they can <em>easily break free</em> and escape.</p>
<p>The best way to make this trick easy on the hamster is by taking some time to move them. If you have a larger hamster, <em>try one</em> of the moves mentioned in this article: The Easy Way To Trim A Hamster’s nails!.</p><h2>Use special hamster treats</h2>

<p> If you want to give your hamster a more comfortable home, you can use some of the cool things you buy at the pet store. Some of these items are great for cats as well, since they like to interact with humans.</p>
<p>Some of these items are for dogs, but not for cats. For example, I know of dogs who <em>would love</em> to have a Kibbles & Chews-<strong>style hamster treat</strong>. Or if you are a human who loves hamsters, you can get them some Kibbles & Chews-<em>style products</em>!</p>
<p>One way to trick your hamster into liking your home is to make it as nice as possible. You can do this by buying stuff such as colored sheets and walls, <strong>special decorations</strong>, and by providing supplies it needs.</p>
<p>By having these supplies, I mean food, water, a cover/coat to lay on when warm, and a place to curl up.</p><h2>Give her a home</h2>

<p> If you find a hamster that is lonely or needs a hamster tamer, you <strong>must take</strong> him or her into the care of a <em>hamster taming kit</em>. This set contains a variety of items such as A Hamster Cage, A Hamster Ball, A Diaper and Food, A Hamlet Toy, and Other Fun Things.</p>
<p>The cage should be large enough for the hamlet to get some space, so it can exercise and explore its environment. The toy should be large enough for the hamlet to play with. The food and <strong>water needed</strong> for the hamlet to keep up its <strong>natural hydration must</strong> be provided in the kit.</p><h2>Keep her well fed</h2>

<p> A <strong>hamster cannot live without food</strong>. You can <em>buy hamster formula</em> or you can make your own! Either way, you must give your <strong>hamster food every day</strong>.</p>
<p>Theoretically, she should get about half a cup of food every few hours, but she may eat more than that if she is happy with her treats.</p>
<p>If she does not <em>get enough food</em>, she may be hungry and will quickly pick something to eat. When this happens, be careful and watch her closely to make sure she is okay.</p>
<p>If she seems sick or looks distressed, you may need to give her something to eat more quickly. Look for some dry matter or shreds of food and give her that before worrying about wetness.</p><h2>Watch how she acts around you</h2>

<p> If she is acting nervous, reserved, or frozen when you are around, she is trying to mimic you. A hamster needs to be socialized as soon as possible to get the most out of her tamping.</p>
<p>He needs to be handled regularly as a baby and captivity-ready hamster. If you keep her in a home environment, she will <em>also need daily exercise</em>.</p>
<p>If you have <em>trouble getting</em> her <em>physical activity</em> and/or want more control over your tamping, <strong>research ways</strong> to exercise your hamster.</p><h2>Choose the right breed</h2>

<p> The hamster is a beautiful creature that you will love to take care of. However, not every hamster is created equal.</p>
<p>There are several grades of hamsters, and they all have different needs. Some <em>prefer warmer temperatures</em> than others. Some like a larger home than the one suggested by cage size.</p>
<p>When buying your hamster, look for one that is calm and does not <em>get stressed easily</em>. If it seems too much trouble to keep it tame, you might want to <em>reconsider buying one</em>.</p>
<p>If you ever have to put your hamster in the refrigerator or cold storage, make sure it has a sturdy shelter to <strong>stay warm enough</strong>.</p>
