Treats!

What treats did you use for training? Any tips?

My bun doesn't seem to have any interest in carrots. I need something small that i can use for a reward system.

I was thinking raisons, or yougurt drops?

Don't use yogurt drops bc they're high in sugar and some bunnies cannot digest the milk proteins. Raisins and homemade treats are good. Craisins too.

I use dried fruits (papaya, apple, pineapple), vegetables (carrots, kale), and flower petals (mostly rose petals) . I also give stuff from their regular salads as treats (like romaine lettuce).

See, I like plants in my care to grow and look awesome. (I always tend to kill plants by some freak way but I still keep trying) So, I would like to grow a mini rose bc my work's floral department sells them (and I already breifly glanced over an article and they're safe for cats.. Not that Oliver could give two poops about plants)

I grow my own herbs which are also a GREAT treat for bunnies!! Herbs need frequent trimming and bunnies are always eager to eat! Acacia LOVED my dill plant but I let it die at my old place (not after I harvested it's seeds!!)

Yeah, my bunnies love herbs, too . The only one I grow is basil but I buy parsley, oregano, mint, etc. They make their meals more interesting.

To supplement the herbs I am not currently growing (come on March!) I buy these organic pre-washed plastic tubs of herbs and mixed greens for Acacia. They're like 3-5$ per container and she gets up to 5 meals out of it.. But they are SO great for bunnies!
