Guide to Foxes as Pets

It would be a wonderful thing to have a fox for a pet. Foxes are charming and intelligent animals and if you have them as a pet then you will be proud to be one of the few who owns something that not many people have. Many people make a mistake of buying a pet fox thinking that is it just going to be like a dog but foxes can be a great pet for someone who has the time and resources to care for them.

A strong pack mentality is within a dog when they are born. Dogs sees their owners as their alpha and they are hard-wired to want to obey the leader. Every dogs has only the pleasure of his master in mind. Foxes are intelligent but their core motivation is different from that of a dog. While dogs are happy to please their master, foxes are happy to get a treat from their master.

Foxes have very strong odor. After a few weeks without a bath, dogs stink, but foxes smell 24/7. The strong, musky odor cannot be entirely eliminated but it can be lessened if the fox is neutered.

People think that foxes as pets can be shown off to friends and neighbors. IN reality, there is no truth to this thinking. While foxes can get really attached to the family they are staying with, they are impossibly shy around visitors and strangers.

Unlike a dog’s a fox has special dietary and exercise requirements. With all of their energy, the exercise requirement of foxes are really great. A large enclosure is what a fox needs for his exercise.

Foxes have great proficiency at getting out of enclosures and they can beat a dog on that. What foxes can do is lead as high as six feet in the air, climb fences, cling upside down to climb along a chain links ceiling for short distances. The enclosure for your fox should be with a roof, it must be large and it must be impossible for a fox to dig out of it.

People think that foxes can be kept as an indoor pet which can be left free to run around the house while they are away at work. If you pet is a red fox you will soon realize your mistaken impression about foxes being a good indoor pet. Foxes steal things, and they hide things that are small enough to carry, and they love destroying or shredding things with their teeth. This behavior is nearly impossible to break even if you have tried training your fox. A dog can be taught not to chew things, but a fox can be taught not to chew things only when you are watching.
