CHRISTMAS WAITING LIST!
CLICK ON THE TREE TO GO TO OUR CHRISTMAS PAGE!
We have been seeing about 3-4 families visit us every Sunday at Open House! It's been a pleasure meeting all these people and sharing the joy of hedgehogs! Many people are surprised at how soft the quills can be and how low maintenance these animals can be! We see lots of smiles and usually a few laughs! Come out and join us any Sunday and see for yourself!
But BEWARE...There is a fairly good chance you will get some Hedgie poop on you! If you don't like that idea...maybe you should be thinking of a different pet! One that doesn't Poop!
WAIT... is this really a picture of Hedgehog Dave and MrBEAST???
Why YES in fact it IS!
I was lucky enough to meet MrBeast! We had dinner together (MrBeast burgers of course) and then made a video together! It was a hedgehog race! Last one out of the ring was the winner!
JUST SO HAPPENS THAT WAS MY HEDGEHOG who exited the ring last and won his Daddy a nice briefcase with $10,000 cash in it.

We would like to thank MrBeast and his staff for a great once-in-a-lifetime experience!!

5 GOOGLE STARS

WE EARNED THEM!
BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY ANIMALS
AND EXCEPTIONAL, PROFESSIONAL, PERSONAL SERVICE!
Male babies $ 200
Female babies $ 300
Heated habitats $ 125
Fleece cage liners $ 60 3-piece set
Overnight bording $ 10/night
Why are Female hedgehogs more expensive?
The first reason is that hedgehogs are born at a rate of 70% male and 30% female!
Secondly, if there is a chance that you will want to have more than one hedgehog "later down the road",
you would be glad you have a female, because there is a better chance of 2 females getting along than
2 males getting along, or a male and female getting along. Altho hedgehogs are known as solitary
animals (you only need one) 2 female hedgehogs can learn to live together and often enjoy it.
Dave's Domestic Hedgehogs is "open" pretty much 7 days a week, by appointment.
As a retired person working from home I like to have appointments set so I am sure to be home and not miss you! Please call ahead and come see me, AND PLEASE CALL OR TEXT AHEAD!!

CARING FOR BABY HEDGIE
Hedgehogs are very low-maintenance and easy to take care of. We find that young people ages 9 and up are
able to care for a hedgehog with very little parental involvement.
But a hedgehog does have some specific needs that must be met.
The cage must be heated to 76 degrees at all times. There must always be proper food and water available.
The water must always be bottled/filtered water and never tap water!
You should know your hedgehogs diet and what treats he enjoys eating and what is best for him!
Hedgehogs are noctenal and like to be left alone to sleep during the day.
Hedgehogs waking hours are 10pm until 5am.
During the day you can wake him to play , but you must then allow him to go back to sleep!
There are more things to know, and I can help you with that! Print and read the PDF file on this link for more important information!
