  •   ashleyklittle I just got a new lop bunny, she's like a year old and she's sweet. She'll let you pet her and if you pick her up she won't bite or anything. But she's very scared and she'll run away as much as she can and thump when you try to get her. She and her brother live in an outdoor bunny enclosure and because it's so big it's like impossible to get them unless they're laying in the nest part, if they're running away from you. Do you have any advice on how to make them want to come to you? 1d
  •   woahitsselena @ashleyklittle Hi Ashley, I'm Ollie's owner so I'll be answering you:) most bunnies don't like being picked up. They are prey animals and whenever they are picked up, they think it's a predictor. If you're lucky enough to own the bunny from birth, you might be able to train them to feel comfortable with being picked up, however, if you got your bunny at 1 years old, it most likely will not be liked getting picked up 1d
  •   woahitsselena @ashleyklittle Also, I've known many bunny owners who consistently picked up their bunny at birth, and when the bunny hit adult age, it wouldn't tolerate being picked up anymore. Again, that's just the way they are 1d
  •   ashleyklittle Yeah, I mean I really only need to pick them up if they need to be taken out of their enclosure for whatever reason. But I'd like them to want to come to me instead of running just to be pet and fed and let out and what not. The only thing I can think of is trying to coax them with food so I thought there might be some other trick to it lol. Thank you. 1d
  •   woahitsselena @ashleyklittle If you want them to come to you, avoid picking them them up anymore, and never chase them. when you are petting them, you could reward them with treats or anything to make them happy, so whenever they see you they know that your someone who makes them happy :) 1d
