Garden Rabbit to House Rabbit
by Wendy Goldstein
I have a 5 year old bunny called Dandy-Lion, who has spent much of his life in a lovely run and hutch in the garden. He enjoy's plenty of free time laying and playing in the garden and will return to his run without any fuss. But he is impossible to handle and agressive all the time.
Due to a slight chill (the weather has been so changeable)he is in the house at the moment, and seems a much calmer boy. I can brush him stroke him, all the things he will not allow you to do when he is outside or in his hutch I would love to have him in all the time, of course allowing him plenty of time to play outside with his friend Pearl the hen on nice days. Any advice on achieving this would be wonderful. He came from a person who treated him very badly,and was handled in a way which would make most bunny lovers cry, so I do understand why he has a dislike of being touched at all! But he is so adorable and I only want whats best for him (even though he has chewed my beautiful floor length curtains)
Many thanks Wendy & Dandy
