Is your ferret a winner?

Use the following checklist for advice and tips:

  • FACE and HEAD – Hobs (males) have broader heads than Jills (females), but they still need to be in proportion to their body.
  • EARS – Should be clean of wax, and ear mites.
  • EYES – Bright, clear and alert eyes are important.
  • CLAWS – Neat trimming is important, this is essential for pet ferrets, not so for workers who will keep their own nails short.
  • COAT – This should be shiny, smooth and not dry. Do not bath!
  • TEETH – Complete and clean, gums and tongues will be checked.
  • TAIL – Should be straight and clean with plenty of fur. If your ferret has a rats tail please tell the Judge, it does happen to ferrets.
  • BODY – Greyhound ferrets are long and slim, Bulldog ferrets have shorter faces. All will be judged on their overall appearance.
  • TEMPERAMENT – If your ferret bites the Judge, it is not off to a good start! Ferrets should be easy to handle and alert, and should be aware of surroundings, ie sniffing the air.
  • MUSCLE-TONE – A fit well fed ferret is the norm. Fit ferrets are not fat ferrets!
