How to get your rabbit to come when called

Hello everyone! We decided to make a video about how we trained Pigi to respond to his name.

You can teach rabbits to come when called, it just takes time, patience and lots of repetitions.

The key part of this training is food. Bunnies soon learn to associate sounds of food, for example, bags (when opening bag of food or using a jar with treats) with food. So you have to combine those familiar food sound associations with the name of your rabbit. Whenever you use food sounds, call your bunny. Whenever rabbit comes to you, award him with few food pieces.

You have to be patient, since, it may take months for them to respond to their name without any food involved, and even then, some may be very stubborn and decide not to respond at all.

Pigi was stubborn, so it took us 8 months (since he was a baby) for him to start reacting to his name. Nowadays, we don’t use food to make him come, but still, we choose to reward him sometimes, so that the pattern will remain.
