I have a dog of mixed breed (fox terrier/labrador), a domestic cat and recently bought a baby ferret.
I was wondering how to introduce the ferret most importantly to the dog, so I can eventually let the ferret out of the cage without putting a leash on the dog or closing the dog in another room.
Yesterday I let both of them in the garden and the dog looked inquisitive. Although he did not try to kill or hurt the ferret he was playing roughly with him, and the ferret is fearless so obviously he tried to bite him. I am scared that the dog would someday snap when bitten (dog is usually a wuss and friendly and almost never bites).
