Hand signals

Does anyone use hand signals with their ferrets? I’ve always used a hand signal when I called them to me…hand down with palm facing the ferret and wiggling the fingers toward me. They will look and then after a minute or so get up and come to me. This morning I started using a signal that I use with my dogs for “all done” …palm out, finger up, kind of like a stop sign. I used it this morning when I stopped giving out treats and they all seems to understand it. Any other hand signals that you use?

No hand signals here, but We have had to learn to spell the words around the ferrets, like playtime, eat, treat, you say playtime around the group, and everyone wants up, so now we spell around them, LOL
