        This might be a stupid question but I’m a first time bunny owner

        I keep hearing that you should never separate bonded rabbits unless absolutely neccissary but I want to get into more advanced teick training and they distract eachother quite a bit, would it be okey to close one in to the other room for a short period of time while I train the other or would that be damaging to their bond?

        Thank you!

          If it’s just for a short while they should be fine! I think it would be ideal to let them stay within sight of each other, so you could set up a temporary pen for training in their main area. Or just lock one away in the pen while the other is being trained in the free-roam area nearby (I have had to do this recently to feed my elderly bun without his bonded mate eating all his food).

          You probably wouldn’t want to regularly do something like taking one rabbit out of sight and smelling range away for a long period, such as to run obstacles outside. If you did start training at that level, I would bring the other bun in the carrier along for the ride, so they ride to and from the destination together, and hang out together during downtime.
