Teach your ferret to bunny hop

Teach your ferret to bunny hop. This is one of the more difficult tricks to teach and takes time and patience. Keep training sessions short, stop before you or your ferret get tired.

An extra training tip is to sometimes give a large amount of treat to help your ferret to be more motivated to keep trying.

Timing is very important when teaching this, the key is to reward small steps in the right direction, this is known as ‘shaping’ in training.

If you’ve not used a clicker before, there is good information on this on Karen Pryor’s clicker website. On youtube, Kikopup has some good videos explaining the basics of clicker training and Nana the border collie has some good clicker info on her website too.

I find my ferrets really enjoy this, they come running whenever we start a training session and are always more excited during play time after they have trained. If your ferret does not want to do a training session, don’t force them, just try again another time, making it a bit easier if necessary.

Happy training! Please share, subscribe and ask any questions 🙂

    If you live in a small area ferrets are a perfect fit. If you don't live in a small area ferrets are a perfect fit.

    I love it! 😀 I'll admit, it put a tear in my eye as this was Sebastian's favourite trick. Voxel is such a natural at it.
