Bond With Your Chin

Chinchillas are naturally social creatures and have the potential to form very strong bonds with their human owners.  Try some of the tricks below to help your chin bond with you.

Chins absolutely love dust baths!  Use this to your advantage by pouring some dust into your hands.  Hold your hands out flat near your chinchilla.  Your chinchilla will dig in the dust and roll around in your hands!  This is really fun and adorable for you, and it also helps your chinny get used to your smell and associate you with having lots of fun.
