Training your Pet RabbitBook - 2012
Books in Barron's Training Your Pet series provide inexperienced pet owners with detailed advice on how to care for and train many different kinds of caged pets. These titles describe and illustrate proper housing and equipment for the animal, and advise how to get all members of the household acquainted with the newly acquired pet. Author Patricia Bartlett's advice on training a rabbit begins with selecting a good candidate for training, with information on how to establish a bond with the rabbit. She describes natural behaviors of wild and domestic rabbits and tells how training can modify those behaviors into desired actions, such as coming on command, sitting up, jumping, and walking on a leash. Additional topics include how to design caging that incorporates fun activities for rabbits, selecting healthy treats as rewards for good behavior, setting up a training area, and creating 15-minute sessions that won't end in frustration for owner and pet.
