I made this video with Yoda who is my crazy ferret. He doesn’t know any tricks and I will show you how you can teach your ferret one trick very fast. Since ferrets are energetic and really flexible they can do impressive things without effort. I will show you now how to teach your ferret to do roll over, which can be tricky with cat or dog.
For rollover trick, you’ll need:
Find some treat that your ferret loves because it needs to keep him occupied. You can use kibble, meat, anything your ferret likes. Cut it into smaller pieces so you can repeat more times. Remove all toys to keep him focused and let the training begin.
1) SHOW YOUR FERRET A TREAT
Put a treat near your ferret’s nose so he can smell it. Don’t give it to him.
2) DO A ROLLOVER
Now that he knows you have a treat, you’ll have his attention. Circle around his head slowly. He will follow your hand, lay on his back and do the rollover.
3) GIVE HIM A TREAT
When he does a rollover give him a treat.
4) REPEAT AND REPEAT
Repeat for few times until he realizes what he needs to do. Repeat every day, two times a day.
5) UPGRADE ROLLOVER COMMAND
When he realizes what he needs to do you can make a circle with your hand in front of his face to do a rollover.
Practice with circling your hand in front of his face.
You can say ”Rollover” during the trick but your ferret will focus on your hands not your voice so it isn’t necessary.
Practice every day with your ferret and he’ll learn that trick in no time. 🙂
