Litter Box Training
Your Miniature Pig
Housebreaking Your Miniature Pig
If you live in a house that has a fenced in area in the
back yard, safe from predators, then you may want to
consider teaching your miniature pig to go outside to
perform his or her toilet duties.  It is beneficial to have a
set time for your miniature pig to eat and a set time for
your miniature pig to go outside to perform its toilet
duties.  Walk outside with your miniature pig.  The first
few times you bring your miniature pig outside, it may
be interested in everything, but going to the restroom.  If
you have a large interesting back yard, you may have to
shorten it a little bit so your miniature pig can focus on
only toilet duties.  If this is necessary, just block off a
little area for the first few times you bring your pig
outside.  Once he or she understands that it is going
outside to go to the restroom, you shouldn't have any
issues with getting your miniature pig to go quickly.  

Stay with your miniature pig the first several times you
bring it outside.  Use words like "go potty," to encourage
your miniature pig to go to the restroom.  Use a Fraze
for both duties such as "go Pop" and "Go Pee." Once
your miniature pig has performed both duties, tell your
miniature pig words like "Good Pig!"  Never give your
miniature pig a treat for going to the bathroom.  Your
miniature pig will get the wrong idea and wish to go to
the bathroom often, inside or outside, to get a treat.  It is
important to make sure your miniature pig does both
duties while it is outside.  Bringing your miniature pig in
after only one duty may result in your miniature pig
learning to only do one outside and the other inside.

Litter Box Training Your Miniature Pig
Your miniature pig will be very smart and can be taught
to use a litter box.  When you first began to litter box
train your miniature pig, you should shorten the house.  
What I mean by that is put up a barrier that isolates the
pig to the living room and kitchen.  This gives your
miniature pig a smaller area to learn to litter box train.  
Miniature pigs are naturally clean animals and will pick
a place to potty and continue to go back to that place.  
Simply place your litter box where your miniature pig
has chosen to potty, pick up the poop and put it in the
litter box.  Once your pig is used of going to the litter
box, gradually move it to the place were you prefer the
pig to potty.  After a couple of weeks you should be able
to open up the entire house for the pig to roam.  If you
have a large house and your pig picks a second spot to
go in the home, you may want to consider using to
different litter boxes if necessary.  Also, there is a great
advantage to spading or neutering your miniature pig.  
Female pigs will sometime leave droplets of pee when
they come to their 21 day cycle.  This is naturally done
in the wild to attract a boar that might be nearby.  
Likewise boars, much like dogs, will mark their territory
on occasion to get the attention of a roaming female
pig.   

When choosing a litter box, make sure it is big enough
for the pig to crawl inside and comfortable turn around.  
If the pig can not comfortable turn around, it may end up
using the bathroom just outside the litter box.  Choosing
the proper litter box is an important part of successfully
litter box training your miniature pig.  I find that pine
pellets tend to make the best litter box covering.
