Actually, if they'll come near you for treats it doesn't matter if they're completely bonded to you. In fact, I've found that training can help the bond! Training Sakura boosted her confidence and trust in me and she became much friendlier.kathydip said:Oh that sounds so neat. Mine know the word "no" but that seems to be all. I think they know their names but they won't say for sure. They do know the sound of the treat container though. Ophelia goes nuts when she hears it. She is so cute. She LOVES banana chips. I know that I should use those to train with.
Should I try to get them to bond to me first? They like each other but I am still trying to convence them they I am nice too.
If the children helped out with the training then probably. But they would definately have to work with the bunnies too. I know that my rabbits will only listen to me and certain family members :lol:.moonchild said:Bananas are my rabbit's favorite treat. Tasha (she has the same coloring as Elvis) will take treats from my hand, but otherwise she doesn't want to be touched. I was thinking of training her to come for treats with the clicker, because I want my little friends to be able to call them. There are four of my neighbor kids that love to spend time with my rabbits. They are ages 4 to 8. Do you think if I trained my rabbits to come with a clicker that they would also come to the children when they use a clicker?
I actually find adults to be easier sometimes because they aren't so hyper :lol:.moonchild said:My rabbits will be 4 years old this winter. Is age a factor in training?
