How to Get Your Bunny to Learn its Name
Teaching your Rabbit its name is not a big deal. The way rabbits respond to words is similar to the way it responds to a treat jar. So with repetition and positive reinforcement, you can easily condition your bunny to learn its name. Below is a step-by-step process for you to teach your bunny its name.
- The first step is to grab your bunny’s attention.
- Then say its name while it’s watching you.
- Then every time your rabbit responds to its name, then it with its favorite snack.
- Lastly, let the rabbit free and it’s done.
Always try to use a similar and gentle tone whenever you call your bunny. Don’t yell at them as it can scare them. Give some time to your bunny, to get used to its name and to respond to it.
Also, take your time when naming your bunny. Instead of naming your bunny instantly, observe it for a while and pick a name that suits him/her. Don’t pick a name that sounds more like a command as it can be quite confusing for your little floppy-eared friend. Before high time, a perfect name will surely strike your mind.
