Clicker training is so much more than just a fun way to teach tricks, it is also a hugely effective way of resolving behaviour problems in any species of animal – ferrets included!
Ygritte was handed to a ferret rescue having been found as a stray. Whenever anyone tried to handle her she was biting and holding on for minutes at a time, the video shows her biting the glove before we started training with her.
We used clicker training to begin working on the aggression.
Clicker training was chosen as the way resolve this behaviour as it has the most benefit for the least harm.
Apologies for the first half of the video, it is not nice to see her in a situation where she feels the need to bite and will not do her progress any good.
