How to make your ferret a happy ferret

There are many ways to dook your ferrets. Dook means the little giggle that ferrets make. You can also get them to do the 'weasel war dance' and here is how: Nip train your ferret so that he knows how to interact with you gently, and you don't have to fear using your hands to "wrestle" with him. Roll the ferret on to their back and tickle their tummy gently. If they grab you with their arms rock them back and forth on their back and maybe slide them a bit. Drag a vinyl tube on the floor for your ferret to chase. When they catch it, pick up the other end and drag in the opposite direction. Billow a sheet on the floor for your ferret to jump on and crawl under. Tickle them through the sheet with your hand or toe. Ferrets love chasing things! (Items needed; old sock, shoestring, and a dog or cat) Get a sock and tie it to the shoestring Tie the string to your dogs tail, sit back and enjoy the show. Make or buy rattle toys. Handmade "Crochet eggs" that can be ordered online are especially fun. Empty child-proof prescription bottles filled with beads (or what have you) make good rattles. Always ensure rattle toys are well sealed.
