Having trouble with pan training
I have an approx. 4 year old ferret that has a little problem with going potty in the pan. The litter box is in a corner next to my door, which is part of the problem. I tried moving the box, but he went on the floor (which, by the way, is carpet). The box is easy to get into, has low sides, but he goes on the floor next to the box instead of in it. If i'm in the room, he'll go in the box to get his treat, but when i'm gone he goes on the floor. I've tried rewards, punishments (spraying water in his face), and everything I can think of, but I can't be there all the time. I've had to put a sheet of plexiglass on the floor so he doesn't poo in the carpet, but it looks very nasty. Anyone have any suggestions to what I should do? Thanks!
