I’ve been working on teaching Stitch to hop on my chest when I lay down on the ground, as I seem to have been doing that when I have anxiety and depression spikes lately. He’s registered as an emotional support animal, he might as well do some work!

It’s funny, he learned what I was asking him to do within 20 minutes of the first training session, but he won’t have anything to do with it if I don’t have treats prepared. Motivation is the hardest part with training chinchillas in my experience, they’re incredibly quick learners but without treats they just don’t care most of the time!
