ferret_farm ️Please help
@emilykrauss_ asked me for a piece of advice and I am not sure what could work in her situation.
Her 2 months old male ferret whom she bought at Petco a month ago is very aggressive, he will always bite when she tries to pet or hold him. She tried scuffing him, but it doesn't seem to work. How do you think she should tame him?

  •   lillylanephoto Try wrapping him in a blanket to cuddle him. That way he knows you are just trying to love on him. They love to be snuggled up in dark cozy warm places. 4h
  •   emilykrauss_ Thank you all for the suggestions the "No" and domination method seems to be working with B well. He is currently running around on my bed with little biting. 3h
  •   devonnetheferret I read from someone on Instagram to also hiss in their ear bc that's how their mom's would show they're mad? I've never had to really punish Dev, but my boyfriend is doing it with our other girls 2h
  •   _alicevoss When it bite pull it jaw back for 5 seconds 2h
  •   frumunkhammar I havn't used dominance or scruffing since my very first kit. That was back in -07 and he was by far the hardest to rais. We had huge battles with hissing and scruffing and a lot of biting. After that I changed my methods, I work with positive encouragement, trust, lots of treats and nice words. For me and the six ferrets I have raised with that method it has been working out great and among those six is for example one hybride and one adopted female from a bad breeder who was so scared of people and hands that she used the method "bite first, then ask if you're nice". To me it is more compelling to have a ferret who doesn't bite because that is a good option rather than one who avoids biting because that's the worse option (meaning some kind of pumishmemt) 2h
  •   frumunkhammar But, that's my way and what I'm comfortable with. Everyone has to choose for them self and their ferrets. 1h
  •   candy_da_ferret You could put him in a box over night in the same cage boy so they can still see each other it has a chance at working 44min
  •   rainebearnw Mine had the same problems but trained very quickly when I scruffed them when they bit, but cuddled them while they slept. They start to associate your scent with the warm fuzzy feeling sleep. Even putting your clothing in with where they sleep has the same effect (we couldn't do that because our girl is neurotic and would push it out of the cage because it didn't belong) 11min

ferret_farm This is a real picture of a weasel (ferret's close relative) riding a woodpecker.
Weasels are notorious nest robbers. London photographer Martin Le-May got the perfect shot following a confrontation between a weasel and the woodpecker.
There is an article about it on MSN news.

ferret_farm Could anyone suggest a pet gate that works for ferrets?
I tried several gates, but none of them worked. Ferrets either climb and go over them, or take it down. Last one stood only a couple of minutes

  •   totalswagmoney Oh 5h
  •   k_mac023 @ferret_farm just a heavy back pillowso I can move it out of the way when they're not out...I've also used a filing box, as long as they can't climb on it, it's worked for me! 5h
  •   cheshirecheese7 If you get a thick PVC pipe and cut it in half and attach half to the top of the gate, they won't be able to get over the top. 5h
  •   ferret_farm @cheshirecheese7 what a great idea! Will definitely try it. Thank you! 5h
  •   mrstrmiller I use the Marshall play pen as a gate to block off areas. They can climb it! 5h
  •   reireirocket Sorry Love. Ferrets are just too smart 4h
  •   jg_96_ Maybe you can do a kind of plexiglass on the side with the ferrets. That they can't climb over the pet gate. :) @ferret_farm 4h
  •   elliedoll13 I use a piece of cardboard to block doorways. When they jump at it, they just slid back down. The only issue is making sure it is reinforced so it doesn't fall when they leap at it. 2h

Na realidade, de acordo com o fotógrafo inglês Martin Le-May, o furão atacou o pássaro, querendo mais que uma carona.
