Rabbit Training Classes
Speaker Series on Rabbits: How to Read Bunny Body Language
Presented by Animal Friends University and Rabbit Wranglers
Suaz Forsythe, guest speaker
Date: Sunday, May 19 – Sold Out!
Time: 2 p.m.
Tuition: $10 per person
Some rabbits have a strong sense of humor and mischief. But, do you know what your rabbit is saying when they shake their tail and run off? In the wild, bunnies are prey animals – so they hide illnesses and injuries. Can you recognize the warning signs when something is medically wrong?
Learn what to look for and how to help your rabbit when they need you the most at this informational workshop on rabbit behavior and body language. Suaz Forsythe, 30-year rabbit rescuer and founder of Rabbit Wranglers, will use photos to demonstrate what your bunny’s facial expressions, ear position, gaze and other body language mean.
We hope you’ll join us to learn how to communicate more effectively with your rabbit.
Advance registration is required. This lecture is for people only – please leave your rabbit companion at home.
Bunny Bonding Sessions
Do you have two bunnies at home that just aren’t bonding? This workshop will help to explore the “meet and greet” ritual by discussing body language, how to prevent squabbles and break them up if they do happen.
