Our bunnies are well socialized. They like to play with cat toys, run around the yard, snuggle, do 'binkies' (which is a nickname by bunny people for when they get really excited and run and twist and jump - it is cute).

We litter train ours from the time they are born until they go to their new homes. We have litterboxes in their cages with Good Mews recycled paper cat litter(they can't have clay litter, they could eat it and cause a blockage)... I train mine only to their cages(litterbox in the cage) because I have so many I can't just have them running around all the time. But it is easy to teach them to go back to their cage and use the litterbox or even just use a litterbox like a cat with no cage. I prefer the cage because of safety. I show people how I have them started in the cage, and then you just make a small pen outside of the cage and work on them going out and back in, once they have that down, you make their "yard" bigger, until they get it... Takes a few weeks but once they get it, they have it down.

Do they bite? Sometimes you might get a nibble, sometimes you get bit hard, and sometimes not at all. Just depends on the bunny. I am very honest about my rabbits. I have one that is doing better now, but she was a mean little devil and bit me hard... But USUALLY there is a reason they bite. Lack of socialization is the most common, or kids grabbing them wrong. Same as a cat really. If you socialize them alot, they don't scratch or bite. Most scratches from a rabbit come from a scared rabbit. I also keep their claws clipped, it is better for them, and better for me

Here is a few pics of the bunnies snuggling...

My husband with Oliver(he is full grown here to give you an idea on size):


My daughter being goofy with Oliver when we he was a baby:


My husband with Pippen(RIP) playing on the couch:


My husband with Benjamin as a baby:



My daughter with Benjamin and Stuart(RIP) as babies:



Plus they provide hours of entertainment for my chows:



I also, during good weather, let them play outside in our yard. They have been taught boundaries, but are not fenced in at all.....

This is Walter, he has a new home now:


Tiocy with Walter:



And Whisper, my baby, playing in the yard...

You have an amazing furry family. I love chows (my neighbors had Sam (RIP) who was a red, and now Tobias who is white), and bunnies, but it is amazing how much they love each other!

I live in WA... By Spokane. But there is 'bunny transport' to most places, it just takes time in finding someone going the right way sometimes. I ended up selling one of our bunnies, Brier, to a lady in California and she hitched a ride with another rabbit lady who was going to a show. And we have just recently acquired a adorable orange buck(Leopold Stotch - AKA "Butters") from the other side of the state. We work really hard with our rabbits to make sure they are social and well rounded. I do breed for show and breeding, but they are OUR pets FIRST. And I know what I would want in a pet bunny and so that is what I want to offer to people.

Here is a pic of some babies(Brier and Lilah), showing the litterbox in the cage....

You never know... People come from everywhere to go to some rabbit shows... And I am sure there are good breeders in your area. If you decide you would like one, let me know and I will ask around about who might be in your area. Most people try to stay connected in the rabbit world and are pretty honest about who is good and not so good to buy from.

In the mean time.... I have done another photoshoot but this time with the kittens and some of my baby bunnies... I will try to get the pics up tomorrow It was cute....
