Guinea pig

I like to let my guinea pig out to run around in one of our rooms but he seems to always mark his territory.

Does anyone have any solutions to this? Because I really like to be able to get him out of his cage.

They will pee anywhere and everywhere, I have not heard of them being litter trainable. Your best solution is to let him out on easy clean floors (no carpet).

they go where they want when they want, my daughter rescues guinea piggies and she was only ever able to litter train about 4 of them, but those she had since birth (pregnant mom was taken in by her)

If you have access to outside, leaving them out in secure pens with shade during the warmer months is fine for them if there is no chemicals on the grass. They will eat the grass and you will clean up after them less.
