Rizzo desperately needs to be brushed. She is shedding like crazy and has tufts of fur sticking out all over. The only problem is she is very shy and unsocialized because of where she lived previously. I've been working with her and we are making some progress, but I don't want to ruin it by her associating me with anything negative. I have lots of experience grooming bunnies from my volunteer work, so I know how to be gentle but also quick to limit stress. I just don't want to end up back at square one where she is terrified to be touched.
We have quite a few local rabbit rescues. So I am wondering if it would be best to bring her to one of them to be groomed?
Or am I completely over-thinking this?
