Ferret keeps biting my partner


Wonder if anyone coukd give me some advice.

I have 2 ferrets who are about 16 weeks old. A jill and a hob. They both are great free roaming, its just Ozzy our hob will bite my partner for no reason. Its not play biting its clamping down and drawing blood. He is fine with me and others in the household. It just seems to be my partner he is targeting. He will run about playing with my partner then all of a sudden he bites. He has tried scuffing which we do not like doing but this just makes him hypo and worse. We gave tried time out in his cage, nothing is stopping this.

Any help and ideas much appreciated.


He’s still very young and should grow out of it? But in the meantime short sharp NO is one of the best things to use.
I’ve heard people advise tapping on the nose!!! But that’s a very bad suggestion and can make the situation worse besides harming your fur baby.
Take a look In other sections,I’m sure there’s a great piece on nip training by Norma.
