Progress is being made

Post by woodwench on Mon May 29, 2017 6:44 pm

Slowly at times but definite progress.
He will now Sit on command, Leave on command, come out of wherever it is he shouldn't be when ordered Out and he is getting better at coming when called. He's still not overly happy about being stroked but I am getting some face rubs in .. maybe two or three before he ducks out.
He is very active, but then he is only a year old. He loves demolishing carrot cottages and is about to add a second one to his CV.

That is amazing Woodwench love, I didn't know you could train them to sit and come to you etc. When I call Holly, she comes if she feels like it lol! I think he will be a loving bunny but as you say he is young and there is so much to be explored at the moment Very Happy

It's easy to get them to come... call their name and say Come and wave a nice, bright dandelion flower .... they can't say No and they soon come without the dande but always reward them for doing so even if it's a nose rub.

Sounds as if he has came on amazingly.

He's progressing but he still as his wild, terrible two's moments. This morning I'm having a devil of a job to keep him out of the coal scuttle! BUT, on the other hand he has come to me every time I've called him EXCEPT WHEN HE'S IN THE COAL SCUTTLE!

The coal scuttle is going to be a favourite place hunni, I just know it I have never trained my bunnies and I think Holly is too old now but I will definitely consider it in the future. Yes, food does the trick with most pets lol!

He is doing splendidly. He now ceases whatever he is doing (sometimes planning) when I say "Leave" and he sits on command, comes when called and removes himself from wherever he is when I say "Out".
He is also learning that begging isn't going to automatically get a reward and pushes off when I show him empty hands and say "All gone"... mind he has to check both hands both sides to be certain. He also does a little bunky style dance when I say "Rock da bunny!"
He is such fun. SO quick to learn.

He sounds just adorable love, I would love to see him and how he is when you issue a command. I am so glad that this is working out for you, more than that you sound really happy and I am so pleased.
