    Does your ferret actually do anything with the stuff it takes? Mine used to hide everything under the sofa. Remote controls were her speciality.

    Not really, he just likes to have it. As far as he's concerned once a thing is under the cupboard it's his, and under no circumstances should it become anybody else's. He's a gentle boy though, so when I do have to clean out his stash I just get really disapproving looks and then he follows me around the house begging.

    Awwww, she sounds like a cutie! We had a hob who used to steal remote controls right out of our hands. He'd go all flat and creep up the bed as though we couldn't see him then slowly, slowly, grab hold of the remote in his teeth and back away down the bed again.

    One of the first thing I like to teach a new puppy is not to growl when you approach its food. people often think this is cute, but this is the most likely way a puppy will learn that agression will deter human intervention, and is a common reason for a bitting incident, especially with kids

    When you give the puppy it's dinner, let him start to eat then move your hand to take back the food

    When he growls, and he is sure to at first, I give it the 'BAD DOG', a sharp slap on the nose and take away the food. I will then after 5 mins or so give the pup it's dinner and let it eat unhindered

    I will repeat this at every meal till puppy knows that growling over food is not OK

    I still test my dog after 5 years. Any dog should allow you to take the food from it's mouth without growling or fear of biting. Alas many dogs would not

    I also teach new pups to sit and wait until given the command to eat before they start thier food from the get go

    I tried that with Adel, i have 4 stitches on my eyeball.
    Just kidding, she is so cute, also very submissive, almost tentative, if i come quick when she has something in her mouth she would drop it. Would not growl when i push my hand into her bowl. She gets a little braver everyday, but still very submissive.
    I just bought her a stuffed teddy bear, something cheap she can **** up....she got all rotty on it now, and as i write this she is totally knackered all over it. I found out that buying toys at a kids store is much cheaper than a pets store for basically the same crap...I missed a week of boxing, and i didn't care, just want to run back home to my babe...
    Also, those ferrets are really cute, can you domesticate a raccoon too?

    Make sure the toys have embroidered or cloth eyes not button eyes, the button ones can choke a dog or puncture it's digestive system.

    Ferrets nibbling the earlobes is bad enough so there is no way I'd put one near my dangly man bits. I'll leave that to the Yorkshiremen.

    I have never met a dog who didn't like a cabbage or broccolli stalk plus it cleans their teeth as they chew it, makes a mess though.
