Yes you need to handle them daily, stroking, hand feeding anything that makes them realise you are there for them. If you lift them, then hold them close to you so they feel more secure

I have made cuddling my guinea pigs part of the morning routine when I clean their cage. They barely tolerate it and don't allow me to touch them at any other time. I feel quite jealous when I see clips on Facebook of people sitting with a guinea pig on their lap!
