- When starting litter training, limit your ferrets area to a small section such as his cage or a playpen
- Ferrets need time to adjust to the sights, sounds and smells of their surroundings.
- If your ferret beings to relieve himself any place other than the litter pan gently move him to the high back litter pan,
- If your ferret uses his litter pan for its intended purpose give him praise
- What litter to use
- We recommend using a recycled paper pellets, such as Marshall Premium Litter.
- Litters that are chemically treated or dusty should not be used.
- Training in a Marshall Playpen
- Playpen training can be easier as the open top allows easier access to your ferret when moving him to his high back litter pan
- The round shape of the Marshall Playpen offers no corners for your ferret to back up in
- Expand his territory
- When you ferret has been using his litter pan regularly you can expand his territory to a room.
- Keep litter pans in strategic corners of the room (it's a good idea to keep newspaper under litter pans to protect flooring from accidents.)
- Deterring your ferrets from corners
- Using corner deterrent springs or crumpled up newspaper are good ways to keep your ferret from backing up into corners to relieve himself.
