if u put the cage in the bath tub he can trust me i have a robo dwarf and he is super super fast oh and p.s. this is my brothers account
you cant let a dwarf hamster out of the cage
strange logic. do you really belive they’re really stupid ? i mean hamsters. smell of food will remain especially if you eat chicken or fish. even though i wash my hands with soap, i can still smell the food so think about the hamsters. my hamster knows my soap and my hand so it doesn’t matter if i wash it with soap or it’s just my smell of hand. (of course i wash my hands if i eat something)
Wrong from step 1.
If you wash your hands with soap, your hands will smell of soap for a while no matter how good you wash them, and it’s displeasant for the hamster.
Wash your hands well with just water.
and also my hamster is always pooping anywhere
what can i do because my hamster always eats everything made of paper of some grasses?
my hamster licks me all the time and it just started biteing me :c im bumed out now cuz i baught a bad hamster. had it for half a year now and it still wont let me go near it. its crazy hard to try and get it out of the cage to clean it. it eats treats out of my hand but im never gonna make any progress. i been taming and taming it but all the taming just made it fat. i cant return it. i just want a friendly pet but i guess i cant have that unless i get a smelly fish :c bleh
Maybe its because you did something when you picked him up before which he really didnt like and now everytime you try and put your hand out to pick him up, hes afraid it will happen again. If its still happening (seen as you commented a while ago) I would suggest redoing the taming process so he trusts you again 🙂
It’s probably because hes now used to the scent of the sock so much that he knows its not harmful. Wheres because you have now introduced your hand he doesnt know the scent of you. So what I would do is rub some of the hamsters bedding its using onto your hands because its scent is on it, then try and put your hand gently towards the hamster, not to scare it. Hopefully if you keep doing that it will get used to your hand and you can stop having to rub the scent on your hand, I hope this works 🙂
first time! Then she would let me put her back into the cage. For some reason this is really helping and shes starting to really trust me. If you keep talking to her hamster gently every day and stroking it, it should stop, also try and do what I did and see if it helps, because eventually I think she will get tame because she will trust you 🙂 Hope this helps
Hey 🙂 I recently got a russian dwarf hamster and when ever I put my hand in the cage she would either ignore it or nibble a little. What I am doing at the moment is putting the exercise ball in her cage, waiting for her to go on it then closing it and letting her have some exercise. Then after that I went somewhere where she couldnt get lost, opened the ball up so she could only crawl on my hand. Because she wasnt in her territory she felt she couldnt bite me and was crawling on my hand for the
OMFG, so cute.

most hamsters dont bite. They just taste you because they are curious to what you are.
With my hamsters I let them bite me! and now they dont do it anymore!
Im afraid to touch it..
yeah mine did 2 probly cus i put my hand in when she wus sleepin
that fails with my hamster but my hamster is very protective over her cage
ah, whatever helps you sleep at night, noobs
same thing happened to me and my brother with our new hammies
you could just wrap your hands in tissues and pick it up!
You may want to try to scoop up the hamster instead of grabbing, I hear it makes the hamsters feel a little more secure.
