Ferrets make delightful pets, and are a fun addition to the family. However, just like any other pet, whether it’s a cat, a dog, or a bird; ferrets do have their bad habits too. One of the biggest and most common annoyances associated with ferrets is that they like to bite and nip. If your household has small children, ferret training should start as soon as possible. Ferrets are sometimes accused of being troublesome biters, and more of a nuisance than a family pet, unfortunately giving them a bad reputation. The good news is, this behavior can be trained out of the animal with perseverance and a good deal of patience.
