Silly tricks...

Ok, I thought it was time to update. For a while I was training my girls to do easy peasy tricks for raisens. Not alot of crazy trickery since I dont think I have the actual required patience, but something small and unique for each of them.
Acacia can count to 3 . Yep, since i stopped giving Yogies and other sugar treats in preference to raisens, Acacia has gotten used to getting 3 raisens and I know it's not a trick, but it's dang cute! She steps on my leg for her treat and once she gets 3 treats she steps off, Ill count with her. One time I tried to give her 2 , though they were bigger, and she stayed on my leg until I gave her the third one and said "Three!". It's too cute and I'll try to capture on my (bad quality) webcam.
Akina will pretty much do anything for a treat. She dances and stands so tall and stretches and spins but I have taught her to give kissies. I bend down and say "kissies" and she pecks me on my nose or lips and she gets her treat. Not actual tongue now, but she pokes me and its uber adorabubbles.
What do your bunnies do for tricks?

That is awesome - I read bunny's listen for the sound of words.
Too cute - wish I could see her as you count.
My little bunny doesn't do tricks yet

I have been working with Honey, but he doesn't always want to pay attention. So far he will sit up and beg, and I can get him to touch a target.

Aww, it seems mine arent doing anything extraordinary for treats. Raisens have become hot topic in my household with them. Like I said, Akina do anything for a treat, she's like a prostitute (can I say that? I apologize if I shouldnt have typed that)

Honey will work for dried fruit, but I cut the fruit into very small pieces because I don't want him to get too much sugar. Let us know if you put your little bun on utube. I would love to see her tricks. I would think it a major breakthrough if I could get Honey to give me kisses.

Cute!
Smudge knows how to stand on 2 legs, walk on 2 legs for a short distance, and spin in a circle. And if you shake the treat container, he comes running! LOL
He gives tons of kisses if you just pet him... No treats needed.

I have tried for a while now, using Lisa's cam, umm-it didnt wnt to work at all for me at first. When I figured it out-the predictable happened, they wouldnt do what was asked of them!!!! Of coarse they got free raisens out of it anyway-I cant say no (oh and the yogie cup isnt yogies, its my raisen holder ^.^) Here's what I got today..LMAO

Cute...I didn't know bunnies were smart!
Kidding!


I can take the video for you if you want.
I love how Acacia thought it was funny to make a liar out of you.
