How to prevent habital biting of human fingers

You will need to practise this, and start it from young if possible. It is a bit cruel, but please dont torture it.

  • use finger and thumb and flick it the mouth when it bites you
  • hamster may squeal, so be prepared.
  • put it back in the cage
  • if it still bites you when you take it out, repeat action and put the hamster back.
If it still does not work, try the 'nice method'

Just give it lots of TLC (Tender Loving Care)

Good luck :)

Hi matthew,

you caan train them by using ur index finger and ur thumb to flick its mouth each time it bites, or wack the nose ( not too hard) to tell it who's boss.

they are very sensitive to its mouth and nose..

if you ask me if it works, it does for all of my hamsters.. i have been using this method for at least 5 years now.. if you still have trouble, do post a comment here..will be glad to answer them :)

good luck ;)
