Breaking Bunny Behaviour Barriers
What is the aim of this campaign?
- To encourage people to get companionship for their rabbits, to ensure they have their 5th and most neglected welfare need.
- To break down behavioural misconceptions and myths which act as a barrier for people understanding their rabbits behaviour and bonding.
In Switzerland under article 13 of Switzerland's Animal Protection Ordinance, social animals must be given adequate social contact with animals of the same species. Here in the UK, a nation of 'animal lovers', we want to make this happen too. Rabbits are social creatures and as a prey, herd animal it is imperative that they receive social companionship of their own kind.
Can a rabbit be bonded to a cat or dog?
Are some rabbits just happier alone and do not want to be bonded?
Does your rabbit still need a companion even if you are with them a lot?
Could a rabbit be happier once they lose their companion? Since they come to you more?
If your rabbit always attacks other rabbits during bonding does that mean they do not like other rabbits or cannot be bonded?
Is it best or easiest to bond opposite sex pairs?
