Is it possible to teach ferrets that bite not to? They are rescued. 7 mths old males.

Hey Mina – do you know if your rescues are fear biters? If they are, you could get some Bitter Lime spray from the WAFFS shop …


… spray some on your hands when you are about to handle your ferrets and if they try to bite you, say “No Biting” and if they try to and flinch from the taste of the spray and stop, praise them and give them a treat. You need to get your ferrets to know the command “No Biting” and understand when they do what they’re told, they get lots of praise and love from you!

There are some good ideas on these site …




Hope that’s of some help to you. I’m sure your ferrets will be giving you lots of kisses in no time 😀
