I remember vaguely that someone else (Matt?) had posted about this.
Looking at the pictures, I'm wondering if the bunnies always have to be
worked on leash. Can you teach them a good recall?

Suja


I wonder the same Suja. But I know the ppl I have known with them
did claim there was something they used for like calling them.

I betcha a clicker would do wonders. But I have no idea, to tell
you the truth.

The bunny I had when i was little didn't know his name, and didn't come when
called, but he _did_ jump into his cage and wait for treats when i called
out and said he was getting something he liked, he reacted on 1-2 different
vegetables that way.
As i said he never came when called, but I basically didn't know much about
bunnies, including that you could train them at all, so i never expected him
to learn much. He did however learn to go into his cage when asked to. He
got more stubborn as he got older, and i had to stomp my foot as i told him
to get into his cage. I only had one bunny after this first one was put to
sleep, and the second one was not as smart. The second one was more timid
and was always shy around people.
Clicker training sounds like a good idea, but with the limited expereience
with bunnies that i have, i wouldn't trust a bunny to be so reliable that
one could keep it off leash out in the open.

I totally agree with the above. I wouldn't expect a bunny to be reliable
off leash, no matter how much training one had done.
