    I just got a new baby ferret, he tends to nip a lot, he hasn't drew blood but it does hurt quite a bit, whenever i try to scruff him he thinks im playing so he nips me then runs away before i can scruff him. Someone helppp i really wanna get to a point where i can just cuddle him without being afraid :3

    What do you mean by "scruff" I have 3 ferrets, Privie, Ash, and Deporta. I just got Deporta from a rescue and she is a bitter. She doesnt bit while being held or playing but when she is in her cage and I go to let her out shell bit me, any advice or tricks or anything will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sav

    my ferrets bite is aggressive. he is a male, albino and i’ve had him for 5 years now. whenever i go to play with him it’s like he thinks my hand is a female ferret but even when it’s not mating season he still bites me. i’m going to follow these instructions and hope he doesn’t do it

    I have noted that there are variations in biting force. I have found these bites communicate differing requests, so I tend to let them nip at me. Once the request is satisfied, the biting stops. Except for my Buckley. He draws blood. Buckley is always over the top. But that is his personality and I will not quash that. So we play rough. He’s a happy boy, and so are we all.

    Every time my ferret gets a hold of me she bites me and one time is was so hard it left a mark in my foot. I have been tapping her on her nose hard but not hard enough to hurt her because abuse is never ever the answer. But I don’t know what to do. Should I start picking her up by the skin on her neck and hiss or what? And sometimes she’ll lick me and I’m like I though you didn’t like me! Is it that she thinks I taste good or..? Thank you!

    First you scream like a little girl, then you beg, maybe cry a little bit. Then you ask them why they did that, tell them how you love them and feed them and clean up their poop….Kidding. Well actually I did that. lol
    Scuffing is not how you bite train a ferret, the mothers do in fact NOT do this. Ever. Having seen enough kits and talked with breeders who thoroughly studied it, they have observed mothers ONLY scruff to move kits from point A to point B. They never dominate their babies. When the kit bites too hard mom will emit a high pitch sound and then ignore the baby. That’s why time-outs are recommended. All you’re doing by dragging around your ferret hissing is abusing it. Scruffing either works, or it creates severe dominance. It’s not recommended. Ferretvite should never, ever be used. It’s the leading cause of insulinoma in ferrets along with high carb kibble diets
