    To get a ferret to stop biting, is to simply use bitter apple spray on your hands and feet or anywhere that he or she is biting and that helps stop them from biting and they will or should lose all interest in biting. The second way is to do what dean of mean said and just hold them by the scruff of their neck until they yawn and let go.

    hes clearly retarded, the way to stop ferrets from biting/nibbling is to hold them by the scruff of there neck untill they yawn. FROM when they’re a baby..

    First of all, your ferret should not be biting you, second of all, if you have a ferret that is biting you, you have serious ferret training issues…

    Also if they keep biting no matter what you do.. you can put them in ‘Time Out’ for about 5minutes. Just make sure it’s somewhere safe and they have access to food&water. I used a large cat carrier. Which stays in the same room so you can see there ok. Good luck to anyone currently nip training, it’s hard work but so worth it!! :-)

    My house ferret(free roam)is COMPLETELY nip trained.He’s just over a year old.You just need to be patient.When they bite just pick them up by the skin at the back of their neck(scruff them)and hold them for a few seconds.Even try hissing at them like their mothers would do.Also try blowing in their face(not too hard).it can seem like your fighting a losing battle but be patient as my hob is now 100% nip trained.NEVER smack(hit)or shout at a ferret! They will not learn,they’ll just be scared.

    every time he starts biting, stop playing with it, for a long time, not 2-5 minutes. Also when hes in ur hands and starts to bite say loud NO ( in ur language ) and put it on the ground, importand DO NOT EVER, EVER YELL AT YOUR FERRET,NEVER !!!, it will be scared of you for a long time and bite even more and harder, NEVER YELL, just say lound and clear NO, and put it on the ground, or lock him/her in cage for 5 minutes. This can take from 2 weeks to 2 months, u need to have patience :]

    if you feed them milk your harming them so DO NOT feed ferrets with daily products. only “ferret food” meat and ferret treats

    Do NOT feed your ferret dairy products. If you want something that’ll make then lick you, use Ferretvite.

    Dairy for ferrets causes them to get cancer. If you don’t believe me just google it. I’d sooner put sour spray on my hands to make him realize that I taste terrible. Sounds like a better plan than making it think that I taste good if its a biter.

    The ACTUAL way to stop the ferret from biting you is push the side of your finger further into their mouth which triggers the gag reflex they will eventually learn this and stop. I have had two, one of which is a biter and this has worked like a champ. Scruffing works sometimes but not when they are really persistent about it. Ferrets are carnivores and their systems are not designed to process dairy or vegetable based products.

    I noticed that ferrets often show their dominance to each other by placing front paws on others . When my ferret bit me I placed him on his side and held him down for a few seconds and in a raised voice said NO….. It worked

    Because it can determine whether or you kill your ferret or not. It’s not a minor matter.

    Sorry, that won’t work.
    If your ferret bites you, you have to give it a time out in a pet carrier. Of ferret jail. Then it learns “play time is over if I bite”.

    Don’t flick your ferret or put milk all over your self.

    toothpaste is very good to stop ferrets from bitting and you only need a drop of it on your hands and rubb it all over your hands and trust me it works and dont put milk on your hands its only saying to the ferret to bite you

    I thought ferrets are lactose intolerant.

    Another way Is to cover your hand with something Hot like Jalepeno/Jalepeno Juise then it will go crazy looking for water and you will never be licked or bit again

    you can also give its nose a little pinch or make a really loud squealing noise to let the fetter know thats its getting rough

    i got a 6 wk old jill and we’ve found her a bit bitey. I wouldn’t put food on your finger, they dont bite to be mean and you may actually get hurt doing that. After a week and half she’s stop biting, we handle her several hrs (4-7) a day and when she does bite too hard we say “ouch! NO!” she seemed to pick up that we don’t want to play if she bites so hard!

    well what im saying is scruffing them is wrong as i class it as harming them …..ive had 30 years with ferrets and im saying its not right……..and im not talking about pet ferrets i keep working ferrets and i have never been bit in anger in all that time….its all about handling…anyone who has to scruff them is inexperienced and are letting the ferret boss them…..same as a biting dog

    My point is it’s not beating them up, whether it works or not is not what I was talking about.

    just handling the ferret from a young age will get it used to you and your smell and your ways……..getting aggresive with a ferret never works ………..fight or flight kicks in then there ruined…….might work on 50 percent but the other 50 percent will go the other way and attack everytime you try to handle them………..

    the easiest way to stop a ferret biting you is handle them properly and do it as often as possible when there young so there used to you and your ways , forget all the other crap there writing on here because after 30 years of owning ferrets,and working ferrets i might add, thats the way to go………….
