    Nice work ; ) This trick is easy enough to teach so you chould have no
    problem. Thanks for watching my videos!

  2. XBlueSkyProductions says:

    2:12 did the rat bite your hand? It looked like it.

  3. Whitney Littleton says:

    I Just got my two rats to jump though a hoop :D it took a while because
    they often got bored or were more interested in climbing the curtains,
    tugging shoelaces or stealing my winter wear. But it was defiantly worth
    the time! they seemed to enjoy it too. Also you sound a lot like lara
    croft.

  4. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Well you need to find something that she loves for a start. (Shreddies?)
    Then beggin training her in the cage. Basicly open the cage door, give her
    the treat when she comes to greet you and make the sound a couple of times
    when she takes it. It may take a week or two for her to get the idea but
    once she does she will come up to you when ever you make the noise. Then
    you can move on to more advanced stuff. ; )

  5. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @darkfire3089 Nice one :D

  6. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Thanks mattie XD

  7. mschwibi says:

    i will start right away!

  8. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @hubertgreen If you keep up with the training you can eventually stop
    giving treats. If you want your rattie to do several jumps train the little
    guy to do one so he gets used to it then gradually ad more jups and when
    ever he does an extra one and only when he does an extra one. ; )

  9. JONASBRANDT10peter says:

    what that for eat ? sry are german !

  10. Puffel Pansey says:

    It does NOT take two weeks of raising the hoop for the rat to learn how to
    jump through it… Rats are far more intelligent than gerbils and I’ve
    taught my gerbil to run very long and complicated courses in less than 2
    weeks. Each course would take not much more than 5 minutes to learn, and
    rats are much quicker learners! To see what I mean, type in “Binki the
    agility gerbil” this is my gerbil and is the best seen trained small rodent
    on Youtube.

  11. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    I’m fully aware. As a person who obviously understands animal training you
    should understand the use of repetition and therefore should be able to
    identify my utilization of my two week bracket exemplars. With this you
    should know how this extension enables rats to learns several tricks as
    apposed to a few? No?

  12. petzhorseclub says:

    @MasterOfTheMidgets thank you soo much that was very helpful!! cuz i have a
    rat and i want to teach her cool stuff like what you do!!! :)

  13. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @plzuttaren Te, he, he! Thats not all at once. This was filmed bit by bit
    over the duration of the training process. ; )

  14. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @petzhorseclub Breakfast serial always seems to be a favourite. Sometimes
    rats will egnore a treat when they’re outside the cage though cause they
    may not yet feel safe. If that turns out to be the case she will probably
    get over it within a couple of weeks if she is alowed out the cage once a
    day. ; )

  15. DrowndSoda says:

    (1/2) Well-said! Admittedly, I’m new to this rat training thing, but I’ve
    been working with horses for 20 years now(11 of those professionally) and
    it seems most of the basics are the same. You can never have too much
    patience, and as cliche as it sounds, practice makes perfect. I can’t think
    of a good reason to rush – it’s not a contest nor a race – relax and enjoy
    eachothers company! Puff, keep in mind that not every human/pet partnership
    share the same capabilities. ——> next comment:

    @MasterOfTheMidgets the Hoop is a brid dish holder right ?

  17. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @foxclaw1234 ^^;

  18. Alison Levi says:

    @masterofthemidget I love your videos. I have 2 14 week old Does and I’ve
    been slowly training them. I’m a little confused as to why you make the
    clicking sound when you treat them?

  19. Tymochenko says:

    haha. :) it’s not so important to me do they learn tricks and if they do,
    how many tricks they will learn, but i think training would be fun for me
    and for those two silly rats. :D i love your rat videos and you have nice
    voice. your voice is very clear, colourful and your emotions come along it. :)

  20. freddiemercuryloyal1 says:

    thankyou very much! it helped alot! btw whats ur rat callled?

  21. Atrastae says:

    Hello, I’ve watched all your training videos and am very impressed. I’m
    wondering where you learned your techniques and if you have experience
    training other animals. I work doing clicker training with dogs, which
    looks much like your methods. I have two female hooded rats, who are either
    4 or 5 months old. I haven’t tried any training with them at all because
    I’ve moved too much and haven’t been in a place they could safely move
    freely in. Do you think they are too old to train at this point?

  22. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Lol thanks

  23. Dollyvictoriabates says:

    thanks 4 the info it will come in handy

  24. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Lol!

  25. natalierox12 says:

    amazing. it’s like…wow.

  26. Stephanie Alexander says:

    shes not doing it on her own…your still leading her even after ur “days
    of training” 1 *

  27. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Yep. There is a link beneath this video that can lead you straight to it ; )

  28. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Hay thanks : ) I recon they could still learn a few tricks as rats are very
    intelligent but it may simply take a little longer ; )

  29. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    You need to wait untill the little guy is compleatly tame. Once thats
    sorted he(or she) needs to be compleatly happy to run around the room
    without fear. Training just won’t happen otherwise ; )

  30. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    I know, its sad…but these two are almost two years old and are doing very
    well. (I think its it to do with the lively hood of their lives)

  31. hubertgreen says:

    dont the rat stop jumo throu the hoop if you dont get him candy? Maybe he
    can jump in many steps, that would be pretty cool.

  32. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @snekutis741 Te, he, he. There’s always one :P

  33. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    I’m not sure at the moment. I recently remade number 5 (fetch) but the
    screan on my laptop has gone dead so it could be a while. I need to remake
    number 6 at some point too. Eeeek!

  34. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Its true that red eyed rats can’t see as well (hence the rock form side to
    side to get depth perception). I just tend to put treats right infront of
    their faces. You may find the problem is actually that they are afraid of
    the space outside their cage. If they have not explored it frequently and
    are not yet runing around freely, their wee ratty brains will tell them
    that there could be preditors lurking around any unexplored corner so may
    refuse a treat because they will want to stay alurt. :D

  35. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    No problem ; )

  36. Nick Amos says:

    Alright thanks, getting everything ready for my two new rats. Hopefully by
    August. Brothers: Whiskers Mine: Not sure maybe Nibbles

  37. AllanbelongswithCaro says:

    ur rats look just like mine!

  38. joiishin says:

    can you suggest diff. kinds of foods that rats will really like as a treats
    ?? :)

  39. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @matthewmartinx Te, he, he! =P

  40. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @M4j441 Thanks XD Your English is rather good by the way ; )

  41. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Thanks matie.

  42. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    I’ve got two lol! (They’re much happyer in pares) Anyway I think female
    rats are better for training because they are so much more lively and they
    seem to see it all as some sort of game but I’ve seen males trained too.
    Ether gender are just as intelligent as the other but male rats are much
    more layed back.. If you want energetic rats then go for females but if you
    want rats that will cuddle up asleep on your lap then you will want males.

  43. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @xKrAzEdShOoTeRx Well in that vid I was giving them bits of a chicken wrap
    and then latter shreddies XD

  44. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    @alisonlevi85 The clicking sound is basicly a way of saying “you did this
    right so you’re gonna get a treat” so it acts as a motivator. It also helps
    them make the destinction between just getting a treat for no reason and
    getting one for doing a trick right. I tend to give these guys a treat (and
    click) after they’re performed the trick so they know that by repeating
    that behaviour again they shall be rewarded.

  45. greenomar123 says:

    your lucky u have a rat

  46. rhcpfan004 says:

    My rat just ignores the food I try to give her, or snatches it away before
    she has to do anything for it :( How can I get her to be more interested?

  47. helloworld00001 says:

    Where did you get the hoop?

  48. Khulood Al Qassimi says:

    did she torture this rat ?

  49. Lena Nguyen says:

    yes it was very fun teaching my rat

  50. MasterOfTheMidgets says:

    Good stuff. So you taught him/her this?
