    The clips I have seen are using negative reinforcement. It works but not as much fun for the rabbit. Positive reinforcement creates a much more eager participant.

    I use a clicker and I bought a long round stick at home depot and then glued a ping pong ball at the end, it works great

    I have a question, I see you using treats with her all the time.. Do you mind listing what types of treats or reinforcements you give her when she does something right?

    Your rabbit is very intelligent 🙂 I can’t wait till I get a rabbit 😀 I already made a list of what I need and what I’m going to try to train it 😀

    My DVD explains how to train targeting. It is pretty simple actually and can be used to train other behaviors. It is not too late to train. My bunny was 3 years old when she arrived. Start by figuring out his favorite treats/food items and use that to reinforce desired behaviors. Animals are always learning even after they mature. Go ahead and give it a go and I am sure you will see results.

    Where did you get that idea from? Nothing in my materials ever suggests such a thing. She has free choice of pellets and hay all the time. I give her fresh veggies in the morning. I use some to train her, the rest she gets at the end of the session. And just so you know….kindness works better with humans too.
