Take a look at one of the videos on Snuggling available on JoinRats:
Earning the Trust of Pet Rats, and More - with Visual Aids
Important Announcement: JoinRats is undergoing a gradual changeover, TO the science of behavioral modification and learning principles, FROM basically nothing except intuition and an intention to be kind. What does this mean for visitors? If you are well-versed in operant and respondent conditioning, you will see this content in some galleries, but not all, because updating is happening slowly. Also, I am not professionally trained in behavior analysis or modification, so you will see newbie-but-heart's-in-the-right-place content. If you are NOT familiar with, or don't care about behavior modification, don't worry about anything! Just enjoy the site.
JoinRats explores the pet rat-human relationship.
Trust Training. Socialization. Enrichment. And more. Even lots on Rat Health.
