Taming Shy or Feral Rabbits with Clicker Training

Tue, 27 Jun 2006 16:58:06 +0000

Editor's note: Bunnies Urgently Needing Shelter, or BUNS, is a nonprofit volunteer group that cares for abandoned rabbits (and guinea pigs) at the Santa Barbara County Stray Animal Shelter in Santa Barbara, California . The organization educates potential adopters and performs home visits before placing rabbits. All of BUNS' rabbits are spayed or neutered before being adopted. BUNS added clicker training to enrich the lives of both shelter and adopted rabbits, and found that clicker training can be used to increase adoptable behaviors in their rabbits. The group also offers rabbit clicker training classes. Visit the BUNS website for further information.

Clicker Trained Bunnies Gain Confidence

Mon, 01 Nov 2004 06:00:00 +0000

Animal shelters are taking in more and more "house bunnies" these days, and looking for homes for them. Bunnies make great house pets; they quickly learn to use a litter box, they're clean, they are active in the evening when you get home from work, and they can be very amusing. The bunnies in shelters have usually been spayed or neutered as well, so you can have more than one without worries.
