        Hi all! I’m a novice rabbit owner of two free-roamers who I adopted from a shelter when they were both around a year old. I’ve had them for over a year and we have an overall good relationship, they’re comfortable enough with me and they have a good bond with eachother. It took a long time for especially one of them to let me touch him but now I get to give them both headscratches and teach them tricks and I’ll feed them as many treats as appropriate for their health. While it’s okey if they’ll just be comfortable/tolerate me as their owner, especially considering their pasts, I would love it if we could be besties one day! So any tips?

          It honestly sounds like you have done a great job with them! I think just continuing to spend as much time with them as you can, but not necessarily forcing interaction that whole time, can go a long way. Floor time is really good.

          All buns have dif personalities, and some are happy with just a few head pats a day, and other want you to pet them all day. Figuring out what your buns respond to the best may be good too. I’ve had one of my rescues for over 2 years and she JUST started letting me pet her regularly, which is a great feeling. But I never really expected her to and just enjoyed watching her live her little bunny life. 🙂 The pets are def a bonus though. <3

              Aww! Best of luck to you and your bun! And thanks for the input! It can be hard to get a rescue out of their shell I feel but it’s so rewarding when it happens!
