Rabbit tricks

Being much cleverer than poor Blackie, Whitty learnt the technique of begging very easily, and the rewards too :P


Aww...I do think this is Whitty at her most uber cute. Sorry that these photos are so blur. She moves too fast for my iphone.


Paradoxically, the trick to successful training is not to use treats that are too desirable. If I wave papaya pills or banana at them, the rabbits will be so excited that they can't think of anything else, and will just jump madly up and down until they get the food. But I used wheatgrass here. Whitty likes it enough for it to be a reward, but not so much that she forgets what she is supposed to do.
