The Cost of Owning a Rabbit
Although worth every penny, pet bunnies and rabbits are not cheap. Aside from the typically low cost (about 40$) of buying your pet, you can also expect to pay for items of standard care. These usually include food, housing, toys, nail clippers, vet fees, carriers, ect.
Sometimes, finding these items can be a bit difficult to find at affordable prices. This is actually exactly why we founded our online rabbit care product store, Bunny Supply Co! We provide great deals on quality tested products with FREE shipping worldwide.
POTTY TRAINING YOUR RABBIT
Training your pet bunny how to go to the bathroom in it’s litter box may be a bit tricky at first, but it is certainly possible. The secret is to consistently reinforce good habits with soft spoken words, or treats when available. I was able to train my first bunny in about two weeks, and my second in about a week once I knew this trick.
What also helps is to pick up their droppings with a tissue and place them in the litter box in plain site of your bunny. This helped me train my second bunny tremendously. All bunnies learn a little differently.
In a previous article, discussed a specific supply list for a new bunny or rabbit which we recommend for you to take a look at. Those of you who are thinking about getting your first bunny should certainly look into getting one from a rabbit rescue. Most rescues typically begin potty training their bunnies as soon as possible, which may lead to less work needed to be done by you once you get them home.

BONDING WITH YOUR BUNNY
Although gentle and social creatures by nature, bunnies can be hard to bond with at first. Nothing can be more frustrating than trying to cuddle, love, or hold your bunny, only to have them run off and give you that evil eye. But don’t worry! Your bunny wants to bond with you, as much as you do.
Don’t forget that they are prey animals by nature. The first recommended tip is to spend quality time playing fun and interactive games with them in a quiet, secure, and covered area. You can find the Best Toys for Rabbits or Bunnies on our website! Everything you will find is quality tested, and sure to be loved by your furry little friend.

BUNNY PROOFING YOUR HOME
Bunnies have two sharp front teeth and trust me they are not afraid to use them. If you tend to let your bunny roam around, then I’m sure you know what I mean. They love chewing phone charging cables, TV cables and plugs, credit cards, picture frames, you name it.
One easy way to prevent chewing is to keep them entertained. Leave toys out for them, and encourage play. In my experience, bunnies only chew on human items if they are bored, so avoiding that will help tremendously. You can also purchase cable covers at your local office supply shop, which will keep important TV and computer cables hidden from your rabbit. Out of sight, out of mind, right!

7. Tips for Grooming your Rabbit
When caring for your small pet, it is necessary to brush them and trim their nails on a regular basis. It is recommended to get in the habit of brushing every three days or so. When they begin their heavy shed, typically every three months, they will need your assistance in removing excess hair.
We recommend a grooming accessory that gently removes extra fur, like our best brush for grooming rabbits on our website.
Another great alternative is the magic rabbit grooming glove brush.
