    Piggy Patio™

    Easy Lift-Off for Cleaning and Access Below!

    Our Piggy Patios are only possible because of our EXCLUSIVE, custom-manufactured Wonder Bars! The patio rests on a pair of very strong Wonder Bars. Just lift off the patio and easily pick up the two Wonder Bars for 100% access to the cage below.

    Lower upper level -- Easier for your Guinea Pigs

    Your guinea pigs will enjoy getting to an upper level on a ramp with a gentler slope.

    Make a Fun Look!

    Choose one of our patterns and cut your Coroplast for a fun look on the front edge of your patio.

    Add a deck (patio) in a SINGLE-LEVEL, CLOSED cage!

    Now you can add an "upper level" or Piggy Patio to a single-level cage with a closed top! There is enough clearance for the guinea pigs on both the lower level and the patio level.

    Dimensions

    Our Piggy Patio is 13.75 x 28 inches. Please note that the width is 28 inches, not 27 inches or less. This is because these patios need to be closer to the grid walls for safety. As a result the width of the patio is slightly wider than the base for a better fit.

    So, these patios will only work as MID-GRID height upper levels.

    Edge Pattern

    Piggy Patios™are shipped with all four sides straight cut. You may want the ramp on the left, right or middle. You may want a wave or castle pattern or just a straight edge. Customize it to your desires! You can download and print the patterns for cutting.

    Upper Levels are Good For

    • Providing variety to your guinea pigs to help reduce boredom.
    • A potential Kitchen or Hay area separate from the main cage area. But please note, not all guinea pigs will want to use this.
    • A get-away area for some guinea pig pairs or groups who may not get along all the time. When one guinea pig can get out of sight from another, that can go a long way towards keeping the peace and keeping harassment down.

    Upper Level Things to Consider

    • Older guinea pigs typically loose their interest in going up a ramp to an upper level. Some are not able to as arthritis can bother guinea pigs, just like it can people.
    • Not all guinea pigs will want to use a ramp. It can take patience (as in days, weeks or even months) to get a guinea pig to change and adapt. Do not expect overnight results when adding an upper level. Training with pieces of food can help.
    • While a wider upper level provides more space on top, it is more difficult to reach under a two-grid deep upper deck. It is trickier to clean and to retrieve your guinea pigs for lap time.
    • The gentler the slope of the ramp, the better, but more slope also takes up more precious downstairs cage space, so it's a trade-off.

    Counting Cage Space

    Please keep in mind that you should only count the lower level when determining how much cage space is required for your guinea pigs. Upper levels DO NOT COUNT in determining how much space you are providing. They are used occasionally and sometimes not at all by some or all of your guinea pigs.

    Piggy Patio Includes

    • (1) 4mm 13.75" x 28" x 3.75" wall Coroplast base in your choice of 15 colors! The base is cut and scored so you only have to secure the flaps.
    • (1) 27" Reinforced Ramp to mach your coroplast color and edging to match your grid color.
    • (2) Wonder Bars in your choice of black or white to match your grid color.
    • (2) Velcro to hold ramp onto Wonder Bar as you're lifting patio.
    • (8) Snap-in Plastic Rivets.
    • Easy-to-follow, color assembly instructions with photos

    NEW! Rivets on the Flaps!

    • We've updated our cage design to make it even easier and more secure than ever! All of our Coroplast bases now come with nice, clean holes -- professionally punched in the appropriate locations. We include our new, easy-snap-in plastic rivets for securing the base. 
    • The rivets, while very secure when in place, can also be popped back open with a little separation pressure should you need to dissemble it and are generally reuseable.

    LOVE!!

    My boys are loving their new Piggy Patios! Even my youngest GP, who previously had no idea how to properly use a ramp, figured it out within seconds this time. I could not be happier with this company. The shipping time, prices, awesome selection, and packaging all get an A++ from us! I wish you guys were hiring because I would be overjoyed to join your team!! :) I will definitely be a life long customer!

    Piggies LOVE the Patio!!

    I was worried our pigs wouldn't use the ramp (based on stuff I read online - and I appreciated that this product description gives info about that as well). Both of our young pigs checked it out as soon as it was installed. We are using it as the feeding area, which gives them much more room to run around on the bottom. They also like to hang out under the patio, often more than in the hideys.

    LOVE it!

    I ordered this for my medium cage for my 2 piggies. They learned to use the ramp within 5 minutes. We use it as their kitchen. The extra floor space on the first level is so nice for them. The customer service was excellent. I received a very quick response as to whether the piggy patio or party patio would fit my cage. Shipping was quick. Easy to put together. LOVE the pink color. And I really love how easy it is to lift out for cleaning. The perfect addition to any cage. Thank-you!

    Very useful!

    I and my piggies love their patio! I use the patio as a place to eat. This allows much more floor space for play and lounging! I personally have a higher backing on my bottom chloroplast to keep the wall behind it clean! Which I love! But I had to use carpet scissors (huge and perfect for the chloro.) to cut out the section on the back end so the patio could fit. Was not a problem at all. Just something to keep in mind if you have the same base height as I do. Especially love the fact that the patio does not require a second level of grids! I did have to monitor the piggies and make sure they knew to use the ramp cause I was noticing one of them trying to jump from upper to lower,hehe! A must have for all cages in my opinion!
