Ya they can - they're very intelligent... you can train them very fast for treats - though dont give them too many, hehe - look at the guidelines on the packet and make sure they don't get too fat. I tend to give mine little pieces of banana - it's healthier than average treats and they love it. If you somehow get them to do what you want them to do, over and over again, giving them a treat after each time they get it right, they'll learn very quickly. I taught my rat that if I put her at the bottom of the stairs and she runs to the top, she gets a treat. Only problem with that though, is that they expect treats everytime they do it again, hehe.
