Just a Couple of Guinea Pigs Playing Basketball (Video)

Animal Trainer Barbara Heidenreich is clearly a genius. Using treats as rewards, she’s taught her guinea pigs to play basketball. Each guinea pig even knows his designated basket, so it’s a proper game of guinea pig basketball!

Heidenreich calls her training method “force free,” meaning she doesn’t use punishment or any other negatives in her training practices. These piggies learned to play basketball in a loving, rewards-only environment. How cute is THAT?

I was barracking for the blue team underdog, or should that be underpig? Both cute as buttons though.
