I'm strongly considering getting a prairie dog, I've done a fair amount of research and have gotten the opportunity to play with a baby pd recently. My biggest concern is the odor factor. My roommate has 3 ferrets, and although they are great critters I can't stand the smell. Should I expect pd to emit a similar odor? How big is their feces?
He would be kept in an apartment setting, will I be able to train him not to mess with the carpet? Thanks in advance for any information anyone is able to give me!
