How to Hold a Rabbit & Exercise Your Bunny

Rabbit Handling and Exercise

Just like any other pet, it’s important that you interact and handle your bunny as much as possible. In addition to improved socialisation skills and mental health, your rabbit will feel loved and love you so much more in return!

How to hold a rabbit:

  • Place one hand underneath the chest
  • Support the back legs and rump with the other hand

Generally, rabbits prefer to be held horizontally rather than vertically as it makes them feel a little more secure.

Handling your rabbit this way will minimize the chances of your bunny kicking out and causing serious injury.

How much exercise do rabbits need?

Aim to spend an hour each day with your buddy out of the hutch. Never leave your rabbit unsupervised (especially around other animals) to avoid the risk of him becoming injured or burrowing out of your yard.

Like most pets, rabbits need exercise and to keep active to maintain their health. Investing in a rabbit harness and leash is a great way to safely take your rabbit out without losing him! There are different sizes available, visit your local PETstock team for more information.
