Rabbits Make Great Pets

Rabbits are intelligent, affectionate animals that make strong social connections. They enjoy interacting with humans on a regular basis, and with daily care and attention, they can form tight bonds with their owners. With the right socialization, rabbits can even become close friends with other animals in the home.

For someone living in an apartment or a house with shared walls, a rabbit could be the ideal companion. Rabbits are quiet pets and are naturally clean animals. With a little training, rabbits can even be taught to use a litter box. Typically they are most active in the morning and evening, so they have a perfect natural schedule to accommodate work or school commitments. Using positive reinforcement, rabbits can be trained to perform tricks and have even been known to complete rabbit-sized agility courses!

A healthy rabbit can live up to 10 years and can be a great companion for people who have never had a pet or older children who are ready for the responsibility. For the right person, caring for a pet rabbit can be an extremely rewarding experience that can bring companionship, joy and love to your home for years to come.
