My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am a Vet Tech for 30+ years and I work with Anna. Cavys have their own language and unfortunately I do not think you can teach them to be more vocal, but you can learn what their vocalizations mean. Some of the sounds they make, you may think are alike, but they have a little variance in pitch or length which can change the whole meaning of what a cavy is trying to convey to you. This link has the sounds and what each sound means: http://jackiesguineapiggies.com/guineapigsounds.html or this link which the sounds are a little louder what you can hear them better: http://www.guineapigmanual.com/guinea-pig-sounds/
It is very interesting because each vocalization and sound they make can actually tell you what they want, if they area happy, hungry, scared or angry. Using the link I supplied may also help with vocalizations when the Goldie hears them. You can also listen to these vocalizations and see if you can recognize the difference in sounds. Cavy's have their own language and will communicate with other Cavy's as well as with you when you listen to the different pitches and lengths of the sounds they make. Hopefully the link to the vocalizations will help you and Goldie. Please let me know if I can assist you further. My goal is to give you Excellent Service. Joan
