Buggsy bein a goofball.

My bunny keeps running up the stairs and when i go up to see what he is up to he looks at me than runs back down. He doesn't like to be held/touched at all. Can someone help me try to befriend my one year old Dwarf bunny? Please?

The stairs sounds like a game to me too. To get closer with him I suggest just sitting quietly in his area with him. Maybe read a book. Buns tend to be curious and he will come to check him out. Resist all temptations to touch him and pet him at first. Something I have a very hard time with. Then when he is noticeably comfortable with you around start offering him treats. A craisin or slice of banana. Slowly try and touch him. Let him know that you and pettings equal treats. It can be a slow process but they say it's worth it- I wouldn't know I was not patient enough with Ollie and Ophelia. At least I have Penelope and Teddy to love!
