Front Cover
Barron's Educational Series, 1997 - Pets - 88 pages
0 Reviews
Furry, cuddly, and bursting with energy, lovable ferrets are becoming increasingly popular as family pets. However, keeping a ferret in the home is different from keeping a dog or cat. Books on ferrets are readily available, but Training Your Pet Ferret is the only volume that speaks directly to the issue of training. The authors explain that effective training can start anytime, whether the owner adopts an adult ferret or purchases a baby as kit. The first seventeen chapters give information on housing and equipment.
