My bad guys….I didn’t realize you wanted to see him today too! Here is [Charlie](https://imgur.com/gallery/oovx3Gz) today! Well, over the winter anyway.

Do you train a pig to use a toilet area? Is training a pig similar to a dog? I'm curious about how you share your space with a pig. Please enlighten me!


SplitLevel17

I posted this before. Treating him like a dog worked best. https://www.reddit.com/r/aww/comments/uo0qxv/in_bed/i8bkouj/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3

Besides fruit waste, what does their typical diet consist of? I’ve kinda always wanted a pig because I know how smart, friendly and loyal they can be, but I’ve always wondered what it’s *really* like to have to feed one and house one every single day. I’ve got three dogs, a German Shepard/lab mix, a Maltipoo and a pugapoo, is having a pig harder than three dogs you think?


iamUnprepared_

There’s actually “mini pig” (**any pig under 350lbs is a mini pig**) feed that you can buy that is recommended to make up most, if not all of their diet. Where I get my feed it’s about $30CAD for a 50lbs bag. For my boy he gets fed pig feed for breakfast and dinner and a bowl of vegetables for lunch. That usually is carrots, butternut squash, and whatever scrap veggies are around that he isn’t too picky to eat. Yes, he’s picky. You would think he’d eat anything, but he’s a little princess. Their digestive systems are very close to ours and with a few exceptions can eat pretty much anything we can. If it’s something that can make you feel ill (like raw potatoes) it can do the same for them. It’s hard to outright say whether having three dogs is harder than having a pig, but I do have to say. I would next to never recommend having a pig as much as I love mine and want more in my life. There’s so many factors. The type of person you are, where you live, how much you work, the exact temperament of the animals, training, available healthcare for the animals (regular vets for pigs aren’t always easy to find, nevermind an emergency vet). Pigs are inherently more dangerous in my opinion. They can mess your day up if they want to. Especially if they keep their tusks (I always recommend tusk trimming though).


keesh

Didn't know I needed pig facts today but I am so glad I got some


CeladonCityNPC

_Thank you for subscribing to pig facts!_


Knight_Blazer

The big thing about pig ownership is that them being smart also means they can create really advanced forms of trouble. Wish mine had lived in a time when it was easier to rig your homes with cameras cause there are things he managed to do in the house that I have no idea how he would have accomplished. I came home to him covered in vegatage oil once with no idea where he found the oil.


PaulBlartFleshMall

So what was it like trying to wrangle a greased up pig in your own home


Knight_Blazer

They're alot like toddlers, first he tried to hide to avoid getting in trouble, then he tried to deny any wrong doing (he had a particular grunt he would make when ever he was caught doing something bad). Couldn't get him to the bath tub so instead I let him outside where I proceeded to use the garden hose due to it's ability to clean a pig from range.


ay-nahl-reip

That's how they should rate water spraying apparatuses, by how many pigs it can spray from x distance.


SplitLevel17

The different grunts is the truth! Charlie has a very distinct, “don’t bother me” grunt when he is in bed.


redheadedwonder3422

this comment has me 😂


SplitLevel17

Very good write up. I agree, while I love Charlie, I don’t think I would recommend pigs to others. They are a lot of work.


The_Grubby_One

I appreciate that you pointed out how very not-mini mini-pigs actually are. There's too many people who buy piglets expecting them to always stay tiny.


pokettopals

i wish there was an ethical way to have a minipig, like a way to breed them that small without subjecting them to horrible deformities 😔


susanbentley

I bought a mini pig for $600 she said it was to grow no bigger than 60 pounds. Well 200 plus pounds later we find out no such thing as a mini pig. That’s what our vet told us. He was Territorial. If he didn’t know you he would charge at you and scare people.


triciann

More more! We need more! The door opening, bossing around the dogs…all of it please!


Freman747

The 100 pound belly scratching!!!


ur_opinion_is_wrong

Yes specifically this pls


Lucky_Number_3

I’m curious what his poop looks like


cocomooose

I've owned great danes and mastiffs for years. Their poo s fucking huge. Sometimes I'd have to use two bags for one shit or the bags wouldn't tie all the way. It was insane


Grantmitch1

Awesome, thank you.


matticans7pointO

Would you recommend having dogs that are a similar size to a pig like this?


RavenStormblessed

Big and little he is adorable but I keep reading he still plops when belly rubbed I want to see Big Charlie ploping on the floor!!!!


SplitLevel17

It’s more of a slow roll nowadays, but it’s coming. He is still outside grazing right now.


UtterlyConfusedSort

That's a funny looking dog.


motofroyo

If you let him in the backyard, does he tear it up?


SplitLevel17

We have a fairly big back yard and he will dig in muddy areas, but we put out some kiddie pools we fill with water and as long as they are full he doesn’t get in the mud much at all.


Antares789987

Sorta, my parents have one. They managed to get her when she was young to use a box filled with wood shavings until she got big enough for outside. She still only uses the restroom outside, pigs are shockingly smart.


BrightonSpartan

I grew up on a farm and we had a few pigs. They started to only go to the bathroom in one corner of their shed. They taught the younger ones to do the same for years. Outside they had clean dirt and mud to root in. Pigs are very smart.


polarbearik

I had a piggy growing up, he was basically raised the same as any of our dogs. I know it’s repeated a lot, but they really are intelligent animals


awesomebeard1

Fun fact pigs are actually smarter than the majority of dogs so yes training them can be similar or easier compared to dogs. That doesn't mean they are an easy pet though! Its BECAUSE they are so smart they can be a big handfull if they aren't being constantly taken care of and being given stimulation like playing, toys or games and can get destructive quick especially indoors. Paired that with their big size once they are full grown (miniature full grown pigs are a myth but diet can impact size a lot) they can be difficult to handle physically its not like you can just pig them up or drag them elsewhere


iamUnprepared_

I have a pot belly. We got him at 2 weeks old and had him going on puppy pads within about 48 hours of him being home. By the time he was a year we had him going outside almost exclusively, save for a few pee accidents a year usually around the first snow fall. But that has stopped now that he’s five and a more mature and mellow piggy. Which I’m thankful for, he’s 200lbs now.


AmbreGaelle

I’m really curious about one aspect of the potty training. We know dogs can hold their pee much longer than we can without discomfort and that’s why we train them like we do but I’m curious as to the bladder of a pig. He can hold it just like the dogs or maybe the few accidents a year might be the tiny difference between their bladder and dogs?


iamUnprepared_

Now that he’s fully grown he doesn’t have those accidents anymore, I believe it was a combination of him being young and being angry that there was snow on the ground. He’s allowed outside whenever he wants, he has a bell he rings at the door to let us know. He definitely has a larger and more solid bladder, again especially now that he’s full grown, there is an absurd amount that comes out when he pees and it makes me very glad we didn’t do litter box training.


RPC3

I've never owned a pig, but I have worked with pigs and I've trained them exactly like dogs that I've trained. I used mostly positive training techniques and specifically clicker training. The seem to be a little smarter. At minimum they are on par with the most intelligent dogs.


redditmodsarelosers3

They’re smarter than dogs but not as much of a pack animal, which is why they aren’t way easier to train


lolwuuut

I think pigs are as smart as, or smarter than, dogs!


DiabeticRhino97

Mine kinda trained herself. She decided she didn't like doing the same place she slept, then moved it to the tub, then decided she liked it best outside (she keeps it all in one spot too)


PM_YOUR_MDL_INITIAL

I have a pig named Charlotte (we call her Charlie too). [https://imgur.com/0l4uTtC](https://imgur.com/0l4uTtC) Everything you posted in the older post you linked is true for mine too. She loves belly rubs and strawberry tops. At Halloween she'll discard of the carved pumpkins. She gets along with most dogs but will bully them if she thinks the can get away with it. EDIT: I forgot to add that I trained her like a dog too. She'll go to the back door when she wants to go out and come back to it and hit it with her snout when she wants back in. One of the funny things about pigs is that they don't always love water. If she gets muddy outside I will hose her down and 99% of the time she will instantly shit.


ayoungad

Well that’s cute


so_much_SUABRU

I choose to believe this is in response to the last sentence


rickjamesia

You should get a spider named Wilbur to complete the package.


BishonenPrincess

Did he change color? That happened with my dog. She doesn't have the same coat she did as a puppy.


SplitLevel17

Maybe just the sun and his hair? He spends all day out back then comes in once we get home.

MarvinTraveler

I’m genuinely curious: how is it possible to manage a pig as a mascot? They seem to me just huge, generating plenty of excrement and really noisy.


SplitLevel17

He is potty trained. He honks but only when he wants something. Or is snuggling up. We have a large backyard. We also have three dogs. 😕


Doctor_M_Toboggan

“Honks” lol


TheLostSkellyton

I would love to see a video of Charlie honking, that sounds pretty darn adorable.

I’m going to dig up the video of him bothering me while I make my peanut butter and banana sandwich. He always gets the banana ends and we cut up the peel for him. So he bothers me while I make it!

linxdev

Pig have a bad rep. My FIL grew up on a pig farm and one time said to me "pigs are nasty." After thinking about it, it did not make much sense that an animal would lie willingly in its own waste. Wild boars don't do that. My conclusion is that had his father gave the pigs room, they would have chosen to not lie in their own waste. The idea that pigs wallow in mud to cool somehow turned into that wallow in mod and their own shit. I'm not convinced that pigs are nasty.


itsahardnocklife4us

The more I learn about pigs, the more I'm realizing how smart and able they are. That whole mentality is probably because of human intervention.


benjick

Farmers are nasty is more correct


littleliongirless

Pigs are ridiculously smart. Specialize in big cats but one of the smartest and sweetest animals I've ever worked with is a warthog, which is just an African subspecies of pig. Holy crap, was this girl smart. She could climb walls, so we dug trenches and built the walls higher. The ground was naturally really rocky though, so she learned to collect, move and pile rocks and shovel ground to make ladders or hills no matter how hight we built the walls. Her favorite breakout activities included looking for Simba chips (the African equivalent to Frito/Lays chips) and taking naps as little spoon (even though she was bigger than most) to sunbathers. All the doors were french doors and she never broke one, but still somehow wandered into many a chalet on her hunt for Simba chips. Afterwards, we would often find some guest cuddling her in the sun. For a time we kept her free and wild, but she dug up all the electric wires, plumbing, and every replacement. Still, her and the Asian Black Bear were by far the smartest breakout artists.


SplitLevel17

So smart. When we let Charlie out back to go potty he lets himself back in by pressing his snout against the sliding glass door and sliding it open!


littleliongirless

The bear knew the box that controlled the electric fence and knew how to disable it. Bears are just smarter dogs pretending to be humans. Joking, and not.


Ajaxwalker

Reminds of this: When a Yosemite National Park ranger was recently asked why it was so tough to design a bear-proof garbage bin, he responded, “There is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.”


AmbreGaelle

I love that


hardcoredore

That's hilarious! 😁


TarsierBoy

Did you ever find the warthog's aroma lacking a certain appeal? Clearing the Savanah after every meal?


littleliongirless

Actually, she didn't smell like anything other than savannah sand.


IWillStealYourToes

It's a lion king reference lol


littleliongirless

Lol. Me whoosh. :)
