    Types of dwarf-

    Chinese. Is she brown/grey with a black stripe across her black? Then she is a chinese.

    Winter Whites. Does she turn white in winter? Then she's a Winter White.

    Roborovski- has she got blondey fur and is very, very fast? She is a robo.

    Campbell? Is she none of the above? Then she's a Campbell (russian).

    Set up an obstacle course, use treats to tempt her through. Object suggestions-



    Slalom (tempt her round with treats)

    You can buy these wooden log bridges- use those?

    Or make a playpen, with all of the above, her favourite toys, maybe a few baby toys, a fleece, different materials, etc; so she can explore and see/feel new things?

    Have ball races. Set her down the corridor (if possible) and time her till she gets to the end.

    Give her a bucket of soil- they love burrowing through that (though gets mucky). Or jsut pile up loads of woodshavings for her to burrow through.

    Or, alternatively, make a maze. You can buy them, ro make. Making is better-



    Here are images of different types of dwarf0

    If she has a brown/grey tiger top and white underbelly she is a robovorfski hamster (check actual name!!!). They are called robos for short...

    Dwarf hamsters like to run. You can get some building blocks or stand hardcover books up on their side or use cardboard boxes to make a "maze" for her. Put treats at one end, swicth up the maze, make it fun. Just watch carefully because those hamsters are verrrry fast.

    Source(s): When we were young and had gerbils we made them mazes all the time. Takes up the whole room but is a lot of fun :)
