The title rhymes!
Any tricks to teach a bunny? My bunny Patches I got 2 days ago is a really fast learner! I just took him out for a while (maybe 1-3 hours) and he already learned to go up on his hind legs whenever I say "up". Patches is very curious and I was wondering about any things that would be fun for a bunny. What do you do to allow fun for your bun?
Anyways, just stay and chat!
Welcome Lil Pinkie!! Welcome Patches!!
Sounds like you have one brainy bunny.
I've taught my bunnies the word litterbox and Rubby, Rubby.
Bailey is very motivated by affection and so all I have to say is "Rubby, Rubby" and she knows she going to get a massage. I just started saying the word when I started to pet her, and it wasn't long before she associated the word.
As far as the word litterbox goes, during training, when I would catch them lifting their tail to pee in the wrong place, I would say NO, and then as I scooted them toward the litterbox, I would say the word litterbox over and over. And soon they just associated the word with the box.
I also just posted about clicker training. Here's a link about that. Very cool stuff!!
