How to Pick Up A Rabbit | The Most Correct Method
Rabbits by nature do not like to be picked up and held. The reason for this is because they are the prey animal. When you pick them up they liken it to being caught by a predator. But today I’m going to show you with the help of spies how you can do that but still make him comfortable, they aren’t fear and safe for his health.
Some reasons why you might need to pick him up is if you need to send them to the vet, clip his nails check his teeth or ears or is but even. So first what you do is you pet spies on the head your rabbit on the head. This simple method to say “don’t worry baby, it’s going to be okay.” Next, use your right hand if you’re right-handed put it under his two front paws under his arms and then with your left hand put it against his butt to his butt. Rabbits are really big butts so you have to be very firm in your hold. When you’re not firm in your hold they get very scared so here I’m showing him that he’s in safe hands and you can tell he looks bit calm.
How to Put Them Down Again
Okay I’m going to put them down on the mat right here and notice that how low I am to the ground. If you’re standing up you have to first of all bend down. Okay so I’m going to say spice, I’m going to put you down now, and talk to him “okay thank you you’ve been very cooperative.” Okay so see how I bend my body down and put them close to the ground and then pet him after that. Now that’s how you pick up your rabbit.
