What Everybody Ought to Know About Rabbits!

 
how do you make your rabbit love you?
Your rabbit is a very emotional little creature, who feels deeply in different ways. They are an intelligent animal capable of bonding with other animals, including humans.
So if you are looking for some rabbit advice, and are asking yourself, how do you make your rabbit love you? Then you have came to the right place.
Here are our top tricks to help your rabbit bond and fall in love with you...
 
For rabbits that are kept indoors or ones that used to roam but have since been moved into an area with no outside access, we recommended that they are given lots of play time within their own habitat.
Humans are able to go outside everyday and are stimulated by lots of different sensations – sound, sights and smells, but it’s a different story for a house rabbit who only has a small area to roam.
House rabbits do lead very endearing and fulfilling indoor lives, and as long as you give them entertainment and enrichment they will love you as much as you love them!
Help your rabbit with grooming. 
Bunnies are naturally good at grooming and clearing any dead fur that they have left in the spring and fall. As there coat changes from thick to thin and vice versa it is always a good idea to help your rabbit remove dying or matted hair. The reason for this is because if they ingest the fur that they have groomed from themselves it can cause internal damage and hairballs. 
 
When keeping a rabbit indoors, owners commonly do not provide activities to keep your bunny active and that in turn can lead to your bunny sleeping for a lot of the day through boredom as well as some rabbits becoming obese. It’s important to remember that rabbits are animals and way of a wild rabbit is to forage, play, eat and sleep.
Understanding your house rabbit, its wild natural behavior, will help you understand what needs to be provided in your home and it should enable you bunny rabbit to have the happiest and most fulfilling time it can, especially if it’s kept as a house rabbit. If your rabbit is happy, they will bond with you faster. Your bunny friendship will blossom and you will no longer be asking "How do you make your rabbit love you?"
Rabbit bite, scratch and play post.
Rabbits tend to keep their claws and teeth in good condition by gnawing and scratching at roots and other vegetation in the wild. As well as making sure they keep their claws trimmed down, rabbits scratch and gnaw to keep their muscles in their jaws and legs healthy, they also rub their chins on various objects to leave a scent. So this is a natural thing you should provide for your rabbit if you want them to be happy. This Rabbit bite, scratch and play post will allow them to scratch and play fully and have fun in a creative and exciting way.
 
 
Rabbit behaviour:
A house rabbit loves to explore and even look outside your windows as they are territorial animals and they love to keep a watch out for unusual things happening. This is a natural instinct for your bunny, it is common for wild rabbits to live in large groups and take turns watching each others backs.
 
Does your rabbit seem to just sleep or stay in their cage all the time while your at home? You make think your rabbit doesn't need as much play time as a dog or a cat. However you may be surprised to learn that they need as much time exercising and playing as they do eating and sleeping. 
You may be surprised with how much your rabbit will play and binky around you if you become bonded. Start doing regular activities and get to know their personality a bit more. Once you have found the right activities for your rabbit they should be rotated to keep things interesting.

Rabbit care guides for new owners lovers information blog posts

Rabbits are such a big part of our lives but when you consider how hard it is to communicate with a rabbit; we have a big task ahead of us when we need to get our points across to each other!

Read these helpful tips and you will understand the little things that we do that really upset our bunnies.

 1) Try not to enter or disturb their territory!

All rabbits should have an area where they feel completely comfortable.

This could be a pen in your house, a hutch, large cage or even a dog bed style area where they relax in your home.

2) Consider helping your rabbit with grooming!

Bunnies are naturally good at grooming and clearing any dead fur that they have left in the spring and fall. As the coat changes from thick to thin and vice versa it is always a good idea to help your rabbit remove dying or matted hair. The reason for this is because if they ingest the fur that they have groomed from themselves it can cause internal damage and hairballs.

 

3) Encourage your rabbit to play with some new toys & treats!

Rabbits are very social creatures and they enjoy playing and interacting with their habitat in a natural way. Toys and treats are an exciting opportunity for your rabbit to engage with you in a playful way.

You might notice as you change their bedding or move around in their territory some rabbits will get very upset! This is because that area is important to your bunny, it is their home and they like it just the way it is! 

Obviously this isn't very convenient when cleaning out your rabbits bedding and litter trays so it is recommended you try to remove your rabbit to another area while any cleaning is in progress.  

Take great care, you should not disturb your bun when they are in an anti-social mood and just want to be left alone in their habitat...

Rabbits should never be forced into interaction- its bound to put them in a bad bunny mood!

 4) Treating them like an object

Rabbits are highly intelligent and often timid animals. Some have different backgrounds that has resulted in a change in the way they look at us humans. 

Young children should be introduced to rabbits in a calm manner, carefully letting the bunny sit on their laps at the rabbits own will.

Being super gentle with your rabbit is a great approach to get them more used to human contact.

Don't let your children, other animals or people frighten your rabbit as they are known to hold grudges.

5) Take extra care when accessorizing your rabbit!

Making your rabbit wear clothing is sometimes a bad idea too. You should take extra care when dressing your rabbit in any clothing or accessories.

They should only be worn for a limited amount of time and you should ensure they are not shocked or upset while you are doing so.

Of course it is wonderful to make your bunny look like a little princess, and it's heartwarming to see some of the pictures on Instagram and Facebook.

However doing this is bound to hinder your bunnies movement and make them feel restrained. Please express extreme caution and supervise your rabbit at all times! 

6) Try to not make any loud noises.

Rabbits are unfortunately a prey animal in the wild, meaning that they have many predators who are constantly trying to catch them out. Loud bangs, fireworks, slamming doors and shouting can all cause serious effects on your bunny.

You might notice your rabbit dart out of the room looking scared for no reason and hide into a corner.

Their hearing ability is way beyond our own so they might have heard something scary. Give them time to come out of their hiding place and do not try to interact with them for a while. Let them calm down and they should be okay with time.

7) My bunny never listens.

In relation to the last point, training a rabbit is much different than other pets. It is much better to reward them for positive behavior than it is to discipline or shout at them for bad behavior.

Perhaps they miss their toilet tray, or are doing something destructive? You can find ways of stopping this behavior without upsetting your bunny too much within our blog posts.

8) Provide a comfortable toilet area.

This is a common issue with bunnies, their owners are distraught with them and their toilet habits and its causing a strain in your bunny-friendship. No need to worry, we talk about this issue and try to help rabbit owners find new ways of toilet training their bunnies.

Tip: Noticing odd bunny behavior.

In the wild a rabbit will hide its pain or discomfort for survival reasons. This is why we need to be extra cautious as owners to spot any strange or unusual behavior.

You know your rabbits general mood the best, so if you see any unusual things such as your rabbit not eating, drinking, grooming or going to the toilet. It is highly advised you visit a vet in your area as soon as possible as these can be signs of disease or illness.

Not giving them enough attention or toys to play with.

This is more common with outdoor rabbits as house rabbit owners will know how much rabbits can strive for your attention and company.

They are highly social animals and they build relationships with their owners in a very unique and special way.
