When choosing the best name for a hedgehog, we recommend taking into account both its personal and physical characteristics. Unlike when we choose a dog’s name, choosing a name for your hedgehog does not require a specific syllable number, since hedgehogs generally do not answer to their names.
There are studies, however, which state that hedgehogs have the ability of learning their names. But, in order to achieve this, patience and time are required, especially when it comes to establishing a positive bond with the animal. In this sense, it is necessary to take into account the fact that hedgehogs are nocturnal animals. This means that you would have to plan your hedgehog training times at night. Additionally, as with most animals, it is easier for them to learn shorter names, with the help of positive reinforcement.
When forming a relationship with a hedgehog, it is necessary that you offer it a correct balance between the amount of attention and care you offer them to respected space. If, for example, you notice that your hedgehog does not want to be caressed, respecting its space is key.
