From the event that brought you the world’s first Ferret Grand National, organisers have confirmed that 2017 will yet again take the ferreting world by storm with the introduction of the Ferret Krypton Factor.

Feeding their natural curiosity and character, the Ferret Krypton Factor will include a number of challenges and pop holes for the ferrets to work their way around against the clock.  Sponsored by Alpha Ferret Feeds this event is open to all ages and to every size and colour of ferret. There’s no telling how their handlers will be able to keep them on track or how easily they’ll become distracted by the obstacles.   Even if you don’t have your own ferret, Davy and his team will have their furry friends along each day for anyone who would like to try their hand at the Krypton Factor challenge.

A great participation event for ferret lovers!

Meanwhile younger handlers can have some fun by entering the Ferret X-Factor.  Here they will be judged on what different tricks and skills they and their ferrets are able to do.

In addition to these fun and entertaining competitions, there will also be the usual ferret racing and showing on Sunday at the show.

Experienced ferret handler, Davy Downey will be organising all of the ferreting activities at the show so whether you have recently become a ferret owner of have many years’ experience in handling ferrets, Bring your ferrets along on the days of the show and you will be able to participate in the activities.
