KuneKune Pigs: Perfect for Therapy and Emotional Support

When compared to other pig breeds, KuneKunes are noticeably friendlier and e​asier to manage

Pigs are incredibly intelligent and sensitive animals which make them ideal candidates for therapy pets or emotional support animals. KuneKune pigs make ideal therapy pigs due to there small size and docile ​disposition.

When we use KuneKu​ne Pigs for Therapy

We typically select piglets between the ages of 8 and 12 weeks.

The piglets above are around eight weeks old. We start utilizing them at this age. They are the right size and weight for the program. Being handled at a young age socializes them quicker and makes them better potential candidates as they get older.
