They will also know which tools to use for easy grooming and how to reduce their piggy's stress if that's a problem. Your...
Students will learn: 1. How and when to clip their guinea pig's nails. 2. How to properly brush your guinea pig. 3. How and when to bathe your guinea pig. 4. What simple grooming tools you need to have in order to keep your piggy looking good!
There will be no homework for this class.
A handout for notes will be provided upon registration. The handout will walk them through the process of creating a grooming routine for their guinea pig. This is not required, it is simply an available resource.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed at the end of class with a fun game and discussion.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students who choose to bring their guinea pigs to class may benefit from additional parental assistance.
