Pignic’s micro pigs are our precious family members that we have raised with lots of love and care.
Living with a friendly and cute piggy will bring you many unexpected discoveries.
Both humans and pigs are living things with “hearts”. When they live together, things are not only fun and beautiful.
There are times when you get frustrated and feel uneasy. If you can accept everything about your pig including that, they will surely give you a lot of happiness.
There are some things that we ask all owners to observe when they welcome a pig into their family.
(1) Be responsible for the life of the pig, and live with and take care of your pig until the end of its life.
(2) Please answer the questions correctly when applying for a reservation since you will be examined if you are able to raise the pig.
(3) Please visit the pignic farm once and see the adult micro pigs before you make a decision.
We hope that all pigs and their owners can live happily together.

Things to Prepare
After you have decided to welcome a pig into your family, you must prepare the things necessary for life with your pig before the pig’s arrival at your home.
Food and water bowls
It is recommended to choose bowls as stable and heavy as possible.
Litter box and toilet seat
An indoor toilet. It should be a dog-proof litter box which has high walls on three sides. You can also use a dog toilet seat. Some pigs may play with the toilet seat, so choose one that will fit securely in the litter box.
Be sure to prepare foods specially made for micro pigs.
Vegetables and fruits can be snacks for your pig, but be careful not to overfeed.
At pignic, we provide special foods and treats.
You need to prepare an old but clean blanket or comforter as a bed.
Harness and leash
It is a good idea to use a dog harness for walking. Wooden ones are recommended if possible.
Old towels are fine. You will need them when your pig defecates or urinates.
If your pig doesn’t like boredom, you should get them toys for when they are alone.
Some pigs play with balls, but most pigs love cardboard, newspaper, or blankets.It is a good idea to prepare a cardboard box for your pig.
If you have wooden floors, it is a good idea to lay a rug on the floor. If the floor is slippery, it will put a strain on your pig’s feet and lead to injuries.
