Naming Your Hamster
Choosing a name for your dwarf hamster is a big decision. There are so many options, it can be hard to find the perfect name for your pet. That’s why we’ve collated some of the best hamster names below, hopefully our list will give you plenty of name ideas for your furry friend!
Can Hamsters Understand Their Name?
Surprisingly, yes they can! Well sort of…
A hamster will learn to recognize sounds that it hears frequently. If you consistently say your hamster’s name every time you interact and offer food/treats to your pet, your dwarf hamster will eventually associate their name with positive things.
After a while, your dwarf hamster will learn to come and greet you when its name is called, hoping for a tasty treat in return. This can be used to further train your pet to perform tricks. Remember, it’s always good to start training your dwarf hamster early and stay consistent.
They probably don’t know the noise is actually their name but they will soon learn that it means attention and food! This is true for most pets.
