Prairie Dogs In-Depth Pet Care

General Personality:
If properly cared for and obtained at the appropriate age, PDs can be affectionate and caring pets. To ensure good socialization, daily handling and bonding is essential in the first few weeks after you receive them. Bonding with a new infant is pretty easy, but it is much more difficult if you receive an older adult who is not bonded to you. Although each PD has its own personality, they are often attention seekers and friendly with their owners. They have a unique personality that distinguishes them from other tiny rodents.
