    I actually trim the back nails when she is interested in being petted. I pair petting with small manipulations of her feet to get them in the right position for trimming nails.I sometimes only trim a few at a time and do more later if she is not in the mood for much touching. Works really well. Very stress free!

    Yes! It does really work : ) And yes you should give a treat everytime. That is how reinforcement works : ) If you want a behavior to repeat or be maintened you need to reinforce it. No reinforcement and it will go away. In other words you are giving the rabbit a reason to want to do the behavior.
