Training a Deaf Ferret to Come

This video is dedicated entirely to teaching a deaf ferret to come when called. I’ve touched on how to do this some in other videos, but I wanted to go into …

    I just got my first ferret, Dani 2 days ago and while I was cleaning the
    room she stays in I noticed she didn’t wake up while I vacuumed or cleaned
    out the bottom of her cage. So I’m positive she is deaf. Once I found this
    out I looked up ways to teacher her things. I found your videos and I was
    so relieved to see that you have has successes with training a deaf ferret.
    I hope you make more videos for deaf ferrets in the future and I wish the
    best for you and Joey. :)

    colored treat in the bag we have which only come with about 20 dark and 300
    light brown ones. she’s picky

    hey courtney can you post more deaf ferret videos my 3 month old jaxx is
    very responsive to the clicker but we recently found out that my 8 month
    old jemma is deaf and I’m sort of lost of how to train her.

    I have two ferrets now and my white ferret is deaf. My vet said that
    deafness is common in white ferrets with black eyes

    I got my first ferret Jalapeno few years ago, I didn’t even know he was
    deaf until a month or so after I got him, I felt horrible. I had bought
    everything from clickers and jingle toys for him. I couldn’t find anything
    about deaf ferrets back then so it was a learning experience for both of
    us, I taught Jalapeno to come by flickering my hall lights. Every night
    when I got home that was how I greeted him. Later on I got Peanut my second
    ferret. I have actually found it to be more difficult to train my hearing
    ferret Peanut, over my deaf ferret Jalapeno.

    Joey is such a big, healthy looking boy. Do you have any videos discussing
    what you feed him? 🙂

    They are so cute…but I went to the store and the smell of urine was so
    bad I couldn’t stand it. How can you stand their smell.

    Yes, that is true. Some take more training than others, but it can be done.
    Maybe your mom should watch some Joey videos! :O)

    Honestly, a ferret may not be the best pet to have since you have the
    hamster, rabbit, guinea pig, & chickens. While I don’t agree they’re scary,
    they are predators. I wouldn’t want the ferret to harm the other animals
    out of instinct. Ferrets are typically better paired with cats and some
    dogs(depending on the breed and temperament)

    i really want a ferret but my mom doesn’t want one because she thinks
    they’re scary and that he will bite our dog and cats (we also have a
    hamster, rabit, guinea pig and chickens, do ferrets leave them alone?)

    Yeah I’ve seen videos of people feeding them rabbits and stuff. But the
    rabbit, guinea pig and chickens are outside. So it’s more a problem for the
    hamster. Oh my mom also thinks they bite a lot, and I tell her that you can
    train them to not bite, that’s true right?

    As with any animal, the smell can often be attributed to how well cared for
    the pet is. The pet store probably had several ferrets all together and
    most likely hadn’t cleaned their litter recently. With Joey, I am sure to
    clean his litter twice/day, I wash his bedding weekly, and he is altered
    which helps tremendously. He does have a slight smell to him, but nothing
    overwhelming that would knock people out like a urine stench.

    Ferrets should always have food available to them because they have such
    fast metabolisms. When the seasons change and we start going into the fall,
    ferrets will start to eat more for the winter. You might want to consider
    switching off of marshalls food slowly. The best resource for types of
    kibble is on the “More Dooks Ferret Food Chart” Please google that so you
    can learn about the best(&worst) types of kibble out there. If you are
    still concerned about his weight please see your vet.

    Do you think you could do more deaf ferret videos? I have a deaf ferret but
    i’m not sure how to go about training him to do tricks and stuff. If you
    could that would be awesome 🙂
