BASKET HANDLING RABBITS
Pet rabbits should be handled by children using a basket with a bit of soft padding in it. Children don't have the strength or dexterity to correctly lift and hold or carry a rabbit. The shallow basket is a tool that enables them to cuddle and pet their rabbit without risking scratches or dropping it.
- First train your rabbit to come for a treat
- Hold a treat near the basket and call the bunny then drop the treat into the basket
- Make sure the basket is steady by pressing down on the handle because if it falls over he will run
- Once the bunny is confident you can lift up the basket and put it down with the bunny in it
