    Keep in mind if it’s a kit (baby) it won’t stop right away because it’s still a baby

    Anyone interested in learning about or getting a ferret, please join the “Ferret Owners” group in Facebook. We have over 1,500 extremely knowledgable and experienced people who can help educate you on the BEST ways to care for a fuzzy. I’ve owned ferrets for over 25 years and I’m still learning because of the group. Ferrets are great creatures but they are NOT like cats and dogs… there is specific things you need to know in order to take care of them properly.

    always talk to your ferret in a subtle voice, when it starts to bite scruff it and say NO in a slightly louder tone. You can try hissing at him/her or you can lightly drag him/her across the floor. This is what the mother would do to assert dominance or discipline her children, but I personally prefer not to because you can easily put more weight on your ferret in that position than they can handle. Keep repeating these steps, it may take months! Don’t give up 🙂

    Why correct them when there’s the three solids rules of a ferret?
    1. If I like it, it’s mine
    2. If I latch onto it, I’m not letting go till you give it to me
    3. I’ll bitechu

    doesnt hurt them. At all. It just releass a chemical that basically relaxes the body, not paralyzes, but something similar. Its what the mommy ferrets use in the wild to tell her baby ferrets to not do soemthing. Hope this helped!

    If your ferret won’t let go of stuff, get your fingers (only if your ferret is nice and doesn’t bite you) and hold their teeth sideways and gently squeeze and the mouth will open. If your ferret will bite you if you try it, tempt it with a treat or food. Don’t get your ferret too used to that cause it might purpously do that for treats! :o) ~Aquabubblez13 Sierra

    I agree!!! Poor ferret! Or maybe, before the video, it WAS biting her so she used that one for the video.

    When Lucky bites too hard, instead of flicking his nose, I just give him a tap on the nose and say “NO”. It seems to be working

    Scruffing the ferret doesn’t hurt it. it calms it down and makes it yawn…..

    @capblossoms….get a grip, these animals are bred to hunt rabbits. they shouldnt be pets, ive kept ferrets for years and worked them successfully. none of mine bit because when i get them the first time they bite me i shove my finger down their throat and they get the message. all this softly softly stuff doesnt work. how is flicking a ferret going to kill it? i never flick mine or have to do anything to stop them biting now. be harsh the first time they bite and they will never bite again.
