When handling your rabbit, you should use the correct technique to make it more comfortable for your rabbit and easier for you.
Remember that in the wild, the only time a rabbit will be picked up is when a predator has caught them in their mouth. Don’t be surprised or discouraged if your rabbit doesn’t want to be handled from the get go.
Getting rabbits used to being handled takes a little time
A good technique for lifting your rabbit is to put one hand on the back of its neck and slowly bring it around to the front. At the same time, place your freed hand underneath the rabbits hindquarters to create a sort of cradle for it to sit in whilst lifting.
It might be hard to persuade a timid rabbit to allow you to handle it. If this is the case, it is a good idea to go back a stage and offer your bunny something irresistible like a carrot or a dandelion leaf. Once it has made the connection between you and free treats, they will start to trust you and you can attempt to handle them again. Remember to never get frustrated, the reality is that some rabbits will never enjoy being handled and others may love it.
