Rabbit obedience school - standing up

Pet rabbits should be put through some obedience training every now and then to stimulate them and prevent them from getting bored. It is such a pity that most people do not realise that they are clever, inquisitive animals and love to explore new things. 

Whitty aced this lesson effortlessly. I wanted to get her to balance on her hind feet for a little while. 

First, I dangled an attractive toy in front of her. She was clearly intrigued. 

I slowly pulled the toy up. When she did not respond, I lowered it again. After doing it a few times, she stood up, as you can see in the picture below.
Well done, Whitty! You get an A. Now, let's see how Blackie fares.
