Customer Reviews

It's easy to follow and I found it very useful.
Heather E. Mueller
When one buys a 90 page book entitled "Training a Rat", one would expect more than 8 pages to be devoted to said training.
Christina R.
Great book to learn how to potty train your rat.

I have owned pet rats for quite a long time, but never considered training them. When I got my newest rat, I ordered this book on-line with high hopes. After reading the book cover to cover I was bitterly disappointed to see that it had little information on how to train your rat to do anything interesting. This book covers every possible thing one could want to know about caring for pet rats, and for that it is a good book. But to be titled: Training Your Pet Rat, and then almost no info on training, well, I can not recommend this book to anyone interested in learning how to train you pet rat.

BUY this book BEFORE you get rats. Everything you need to know is covered in this book, for beginners. Everything from cages, bedding, toys and much more is explained in a simple and fun way. I understand how some people were disapointed in the training aspect, but honestly I think what you need to know is covered. Training is basic, how far you want to take it is all up to the amount of time you put in.

Wow!!! This book tells you everything you need to know about training your little rattie. I've already taught my "babies" how to stand up, give a high-five, and spin on command!!!

I have had other rodents in the past, (mice, hamsters, gerbils, etc.) but when I got my two new rats, I was ready to train them. I ordered this book before I got them, and I knew how to train. My two female rats now know many tricks that were all in this book. At some websites that I looked at for new tricks, the instructions were not as clear, or detailed as in this book. If you are a new rat ouwner, this is a must-buy!!

This book should be named "Training Your Owner- Guide For Rats." It gives great information for first-time rat owners on almost every subject, including housing, feeding, picking your rat(s), playtime, and training. Most of the information in the training section is pretty basic, but it gives lots of ways to expand on and personalize your rat's training.

If there were a sixth star available for that rare bird, the perfect book, I'd be using it without reservation for this one. The style is engaging and often humorous, suitable for all ages. The photographs are also wonderfully done, showing the rats in all their playfulness and intelligence. It really shows that the authors are dedicated rat-fans. Their ideas for training and playing with your pet rat are very inventive, and they definitely worked on my rats. With the Christmas season coming up, I'd heartily recommend this book as a perfect gift for any rat owner.

I learned so much from this amazing book. Read it and you will learn so much about the rat and how almost "human" they are. They truely are trainable and lovable. I bought the book for my son who is the parent for a big Ratty. The book is great. Buy it!!

Format: Paperback
While it is a cute book, for anyone familiar with operant conditioning, this book is a disapointment. The care info and ideas on toys can be found in other books and on various internet sites. Probably the one thing that stood out was the clarity of the explanation of the differences between training males and females. There's very little meat on training actual exercises. The training ideas given are pretty standard. There's really nothing on working complex behaviors.
