I was working on "c'mere" and when Miss Bunny came, I clicked and accidentally clicked right next to her ear. She ran away and thumped for about 15 minutes! I felt so bad. So please - don't click near your bunny - their ears are very sensitive. It hurt when I clicked next to my ear so I'm sure it hurt her ear a lot. I'm going to try the i-click and see if it's quieter. I do find it difficult to manage holding the target stick, treats, and clicker all at once, so I'm hoping I can use the i-click with my feet. You can see my cute bunny here: [...]:) I've been doing simple tricks with my bunny for a while and she's having a hard time connecting the clicker to treats. I realized that I always said, "YAY!" when she did her trick, so maybe that's a better option for her then the clicker, but now I understand better how to train her and we're making progress on new tricks.
I've been clicker training my English lop, Darcy for a few months now. Not every day but in spurs. And each time he picks it right up. The tips in this book really work. And it goes through detail all the advantages and plus sides to clicker training your rabbit, such as handling, transporting and basics . Most dont think it can be done. But my rabbit catches on quick, and quicker the more he gets into it. It's really interesting what habits and movements you can get them to do on cue. I would suggest the book, and the activity itself, for people who have rabbits, or children who have rabbits, who feel like their rabbit is just a rabbit, and not entertaining anymore. Watching your rabbit respond to the clicker and repeat tricks over and over, will make you fall in love with your rabbit over and over again.
I was skeptical doing Clicker Training with our Mini Rex bunny, Alphie. He has SO much energy, and is SO hyper, I contacted the House Rabbit Society to see what I can do for him since we do not have another bunny to keep Alphie company. I wanted to try to harness his energy, and I wanted to make sure his mind was stimulated so that he doesn't get bored or depressed. They instantly suggested Clicker Training. I had read about Clicker Training before and dismissed it because I thought it was a hoax or just a money-maker. I ordered the book first and read through it within a couple hours. It made so much sense. So I ordered the clickers. They arrived today and Alphie had his first training session today!! He LOVED it!! He already grasps the concept of the clicker and he is already running towards a target, which is the first step in the book! We are VERY pleased and we look forward to other tricks we can teach him!! Most importantly, his mind is being stimulated and he's being rewarded for his awesome behavior!! LOVE this book and the clickers!!!
Well our bunny REALLY didnt like being put into a cage at night, he would totally flip out. So it crossed my mind to train him, but how do I communicate better w/ an animal that isnt vocal like a cat or dog? This is my 1st bunny. I found out about clicking for animals. It helped to litter train him, and put him in his ‘home’ area at night. It did not work w/ doing tricks, he wasnt having any part of that. I really wish clicker training awareness pamphlets were made available in pet stores or the vet. So people could better interact w/ animals.
Clicker training worked for ALL my pets. The underlying concept and principles in this book work. Your rabbit will bond with you so much quicker and respond much better. You give your rabbit invaluable stimulation and attention by communicating in a common language where expectations are met with rewards by using a clicker to communicate. Consistent and effective and worked for all my pets below:-Dog-Cat-Rabbits-ParrotMy rabbit picked up commands and repeated them in about 10 - 15 minutes without hesitation. I could tell she was very intrigued. Binkies galore!
This book is written clearly and the writer has a very good understanding of bunnies. My bunnies love clicker training! When they see me get ready for training they get all excited and run through their tricks to get my attention. I highly recommend this book to teach you how to clicker train and I highly recommend that you clicker train your rabbits. It has really improved my relationship with both of my bunnies.
great easy instructions! of course it goes thru lots of fun tricks, but i love the useful ones! teaching your bunny commands that make caring for them easier. anything that helps with grooming and vet trips is awesome!
