Pet rats show a great deal of intelligence. With a little bit of training they?perform tricks and ?obey basic commands. We estimate that a rat possesses?the same capability to learn as a six month old puppy. Given the right incentives, rats?respond very well to training. As a matter of fact, people use rats to?detect land mines in Africa.

Training rats to do tricks and come when called by name is pretty easy. If you’ve never worked with a rat before, their affection and intelligence might surprise you. We show you the best way to train your pet rat.
