Ferret Harnesses & Leashes

Given how energetic and curious ferrets tend to be, it makes sense to consider taking them on walks or on car rides to different places. Chewy offers a variety of ferret harnesses and leashes, plus several ferret carrier options to help you take your little buddy wherever you want to go. Here are some things to consider before you buy.

Most ferrets take readily to walking on a leash with the proper training and equipment, so make sure to get the right gear and start by teaching your ferret to use it indoors. You'll want to choose a harness for ferrets or one specifically made for small animals, as collars and even dog and cat harnesses don't work well for ferrets. An H-shaped harness will be the most secure choice, but ferrets who aren't prone to escaping can use a vest style harness, too. Make sure you try on the harness to get a snug fit and take leash training slowly to acclimate your ferret to it.

Some ferrets wind up loving the leash, but a few will never stop struggling against it. For them, you may want to look into a ferret carrier or ferret travel cage for outings. Every ferret owner will probably need a carrier for essential trips like vet visits, travel and moves, but you can also use a ferret cage carrier, carrier bag or small animal carrier case to spirit your pet around town and to playdates. Look for an escape-proof design that gives you easy access to your pet when you need it. Portable ferret cages work well for overnight stays, as they provide a comfortable habitat for your pet, while bag and case-style ferret carriers may be easier to carry around.

Training your ferret to walk on a leash or to enjoy the carrier can be aided by the strategic use of ferret treats or ferret food as a reward. Putting favorite ferret beds or ferret toys in a new carrier can also make it seem more inviting. Chewy has all the ferret supplies you need to make the training process go smoothly and quickly. Shop the small pet supplies section of our site to find the perfect ferret harness for your pet, so you can take him wherever you go!

Frequently Asked Questions about Ferret Harnesses & Leashes

How do you put on a ferret harness?

Putting a harness on a ferret will be much easier if you distract them with treats. You can either buckle the neck fastener on the harness and then slip it onto the ferret's neck, fastening the belly strap once you've got it in the right position, or lay the harness over the ferret's back and fasten both fasteners once it's positioned. Always avoid collars; ferrets can get out of them and may also choke when they pull; and instead choose an H harness like the Marshall Harness & Lead Ferret Leash or a vest-style harness like the Living World Small Animal Harness & Lead for extra cuteness and comfort. Know that some ferrets simply will never acclimate to the leash and should not be forced.

Do ferrets mind wearing harnesses?

Some ferrets don't mind wearing harnesses, but others may struggle and wriggle to get out of their ferret harnesses. Start slowly and give your ferret a treat when you put on the harness, and be sure to leave ferret harnesses and leashes on only for short periods at first. Be sure to choose a harness; not a collar; and leash labeled specifically for ferrets. Many ferret harnesses come as sets with ferret leashes included. With patience, the right gear, and a little luck, you may be able to train your pet to walk on a leash and enjoy it!

What are the best ferret carriers?

The best ferret carriers are well-ventilated and secure carriers made specifically for small pets. Hard-sided ferret carriers are usually safer than soft-sided ones, as some ferrets can dig their way through the stitching or fabric and escape. A cat carrier can work for ferrets, as well, but there are many great carriers made specifically for smaller pets with lots of helpful features. Ferret travel cages can also be a good way to transport your furry friend to and fro.
