    Honey, my lop that I am starting to clicker train, likes to hang out with Shanay, the satin in the pen next to him. Today I opened his pen and let Shanay go inside Honey's pen, and they got along just fine. I was wondering if I bonded these two rabbits and housed them together, would it be...

    I'm looking for a dog trainer in Newfoundland. I will N0T consider a trainer who uses bark control collars,choke chains,or any sort of "shocking" or "scaring" device. Clicker training doesn't seem harmful to me (if there is something negative,please inform,doesn't seem like my dog is scared of...

    Alright, I am not any where near knowing enough about mice. Before now, all I knew was that there were little field mice running all over our property that my dogs love to chase. This scholarphip is VERY important to me. I'm considered to be pretty smart, but I'm not a genius and I'm going to...

    ARG! Hoddy Toddy is such a pain sometimes. OK I love him to death anyways, but I just CANNOT get him to stop eating the carpet. I'd say he's just completely impossible, except he's become REALLY good at one command: "back!" When I say that and point to his cage he'll even run from across the...

    We were having issues with gracy using the litter box for the first several days that we had her. But now she seems to go pee in there almost all the time. Except for a quarter size pee spot on the rug. But poo abounds. She is making pelets everywhere. We have her cage with a fence surround...

    Are there any good books that teach how to clicker train or target train rabbits?
  13. Gerbil & Hamster Discussion
    I read that you could teach a hamster to do tricks. Anyone know what tricks those are and how you would go about doing it. I think it would add a little excitement into Ozzy and Drix's lives.
  14. General Animal Discussion
    I have a neighbor (same one that threatened to shoot my dogs actually) and they want their animals to die naturally. What do you think? I think to make an animal suffer like that is beyond cruel. I think that if they are suffering you should put them down. Now if they die suddenly of causes...

    I was thinking of doing some clicker training with my rabbits. Nothing fancy, maybe just get them to come to me on command. I was wondering if anyone has tried this?

    I think when used right theyu are useful tools for training! I use both a choke chain and a prong on my dogs. The prong is a godsend for me. I have a dogs that weigh almost as much as me.
