Baby rats learning tricks (spin and paw)

Cloud working on spins, and Scrap giving me his paw (pushing a button for food, heh). They’re a little over five weeks in this video, and so cute! I’m using bits of cheerios as treats, and trying to use clicker training with my mouth. They’re probably wondering why they have to do silly things for yummies.

    What's the best treat I could use for my baby rats? My mom rat had ten babies and I get to keep two. Because the mom is getting really old. She was pregnant when I go her. But any way I'm trying to train my babies but no foods I use interest them. But mom is interested in cereal I taught her how to spin and to jump with cereal.

    I had two baby rats for a couple months and I was astounded at how fast they learned. My rats were potty-trained from day one–they only had a couple hiccups but for the most part I could put them in my sweater pocket and take them to class, and they would just nap. Between class I'd go outside, let them take a piss on the grass, then they'd crawl back up into my pocket for my next class. Unbelievable.

    For this video, I broke up cheerios into little bits. They're pretty happy to eat any human food. Yogies are great too!

    No I got him from a pet shop, but the people there hold their rats. I would get a friend for him but my mum HATES rats and I was barely allowed him.

    Sounds like your rat is already pretty tame. You can probably start teaching him tricks. Some rats come scared and take a while to even come to you. Did you get yours from a breeder? Also, I recommend getting him a friend; rats get lonely when they're by themselves!

    Ok then thank.

    Roughly how long does it take for them to gain their trust? my rat eats out of my hand and licks yoghurt of my fingers and he also climbs on to my arm.

    I'm no expert, but I imagine it's much easier to teach a tame rat tricks. After all, if they're scared of you, they probably won't be motivated to learn tricks. Gain their trust first!

    Do rats need to be fully hand tame to be able to teach them tricks?
    As I want to train my 7 week old rat but I only just got him yesterday?

    Yep, but just making the sound myself – saves money and leaves an extra free hand!
