Hi, I'm a first time ferret owner, my partner and I brought home our pair just over three weeks ago. They're a mum and daughter (18 months and 4 months), and we've been really really struggling with behaviour issues. The mum is obsessed with digging at the door; she wants to get out and explore more, but even when we open up the door for her to have supervised play in the next room (we thought maybe she just wanted to know what was beyond the door) she just finds her next door to dig at. When we've settled them in a bit more and they've had their vaccinations we plan to walk them in the local park, so hopefully that'll help with her need to explore, but in the meantime it's getting chronic. We're doing all the things the books say discipline- scruffing, saying no and putting her in a time out when she's been digging, plus rewarding her good behaviour when she digs on the scratch pad or in her box of rice that we got her so she knows there is somewhere she's allowed to dig. She stops for a short while but then starts up again. Does anyone have any advice? I wonder if she needs more outlets for her curiosity/energy. She doesn't seem that interested in playing with us (we've tried chase, teaser toys, balls and treat puzzles). She tries to play with her daughter but she's quite rough and the daughter mostly runs away and hides. She also bites really hard sometimes when you've annoyed her. After telling her off for digging she climbed up my partners back and bit his scalp and wouldn't let go. The other day she launched herself at my leg and bit me after I'd been telling her off for digging. What with the fact that she also poos in corners of rooms and her daughter bites any scrap of flesh she can find, we're really at our wits end with the situation!
