I really want to direct your attention to an article that was posted on our PigFacts page today on Natural Behavior  Provided by Vickie Craig and written by Dave.

Having a pet pig in your house or even in your backyard can be pretty aggravating at times. Understanding what your pig needs and wants are will help you enjoy your pig. I have found that most people really don’t know what they are getting when they purchase their pet pig. They see these little cuties and the desire to have one out weighs the common sense.

Honestly, most of us know exactly what kind of dog we will buy before even looking for one. We have this checklist in our heads of questions to ask ourselves.

  1. Will this dog be good around my kids?
  2. Will my new dog need to be inside or outside?
  3. Will I have the time to train my puppy?
  4. What kind of things will I need ( dog bed/ Dog house, food, etc…

There are tons more, but most people don’t ask those questions when they buy a pig. Believe me, I KNOW how cute the little piglets are and I fell victim to that as well with my first mini pig Phebe. But thank God I live on 5 acres and was able to let her out of the house to run around the yard and be a pig.  I did breed them for awhile and sold to people that live in apartments and small communities, but I honestly wouldn’t suggest it unless you have some place to let the pig out in the yard.

About Brenda

I am the owner and operator of Mini Pig Farm as well as PigGear.
I no longer breed mini pigs, but I still have 4 of my own.
I started making pig harnesses in 2010 when I couldn't find a harness that fit right. PigGear was created when my mini pig customers needed a bigger size harness when their baby grew out of the one I provided to them.
