Perfect for the beginner and a definite crowd pleaser, we have the Siberian Hamster. Did you know that during the winter months, the Siberian Hamster fur will turn white? It’s a fact, their fur will turn white with a change in the temperature. The Siberian Hamster is easy to tame with proper training, social with other hamsters, and has a range of fur colors.

The Siberian Hamster is also called a White Russian Dwarf. Siberian Hamsters are one of two types of Russian Dwarfs and it’s difficult to distinguish between the Siberian and the their close relatives, the Campbell Russian Dwarf.

The Siberian Hamster specie is typically a gray color with a white or cream-colored underbelly and a dark strip down his back. They will typically grow to about four inches in length from the tip of their nose to the end of their tail. When compared to other species of this type, they are not quite as bulky and their feed are furrier. Wild Siberian hamsters turn white in winter in response to changing seasonal daylight patterns.

After many years of captive breeding, we now have two color types in addition to the every day gray color. The pear color type has a darker head and a white body. Shapiro types have a blue-gray fur with a darker stripe down their back, a white or cream-colored belly and dark eyes. These color mutations don’t change much in the winter.

Female hamsters typically provide birth to four to six baby hamsters, called pups, after a gestation period of about nineteen days. They can have additional litters every twenty four days, and young hamsters begin breeding when they are only a month old. As you can see, this is reason enough to keep pets of the same sex in pairs. If you don’t, they’ll soon require an apartment of their own. If a female Siberian hamster becomes pregnant while she is nursing her young, she can put her pregnancy on hold so that the fertilized eggs won’t mature until she weans the current liter. The only other mammals known to do this are bats.

Training your mouse isn’t a complicated process. It’s easy and can be accomplished relatively quickly. However, your Siberian Hamster must the following characteristics. Firstly, it must be easy-going. If he or she is not easy-going, then training may take longer. Your pet must also be prepared to do some exercise and shouldn’t be overweight. It should also be child-friendly and relatively intelligent.

Let’s get started. Firstly, you need a tame hamster. If you can take him into your hands and feed him then your all good. If he’s not docile, your going to need to build up some trust with your pet. Be sure he Is not showing any signs of aggression or make any weird noises.

Don’t forget to use treats when training your hamster. Treats can include cereal or other food items your pet may like. Feed your pet out of your hand which helps establish trust with your pet. Treats are important so be sure to reared your hamster when he or she performs well in the learning process.

It may take more time to teach a hamster how to do a simple trick, than let’s say, a dog, but once he learns his first trick, teaching him other trick’s won’t be so difficult. Repetition is key. Try to show your hamster how to do a trick the same way each time. You may have to demonstrate the trick to your hamster many times, but when the light bulb goes off in the hamsters head, it will be remembered.

Whatever you do, don’t lose your patience, instead just relax and enjoy the fun time spend with your pet. If you have two or more hamsters and training them at the same time, let the other’s watch, as they will may learn just by watching.

So you’re probably here because you want to teach your hamster a trick? Fine. Let’s work on a basic trick. Teaching your hamster to stand on its hind legs is pretty simple and if he or she is already taking treats from your hand then your already more than half way there.

Place your hamster on a solid surface such as a desk or table and ensure there is nothing near the surface that could otherwise distract him. Place your pet right in front of you. Show your pet the item you have and say the cue word, such as “SIT UP” or “STAND” As he beings to investigate the item, raise the item above the hamsters head. When he takes the food item, stop and praise or treat the hamster.

Remember that repetition is key. As you repeat this trick, raise the item a little more each time. Naturally, hamsters are pretty smart and may even stand the first time around. Each time he or she performs the right behaviour, rewarded it and say “good”, but drag out the word and provide a small treat.

Before long you will have your hamster doing cartwheels and spinning around in circles.
