5 Aug 2013 Rabbit Trims Own Nails by HART Kahuna | posted in: Pet Training Videos | 4 Many rabbits do not enjoy nail trims. Rather than restrain and clip, I trained my rabbit to “dig” on sandpaper when cued. This helps file down the tips of he… Please follow and like us:
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!
What’s your method of filing/clipping back nails? This is one novel way of approaching bunny front nail filing. Thanks for sharing!
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.
Does this really work? Do you have to give a treat every time?
