Summary

Summary

Rabbits are popular domesticated pets, but many develop problems because of living conditions that do not allow them to follow their behavioral instincts. This guide to troubleshooting rabbit behavior clues owners in to the history of the domesticated rabbit and describes how rabbits live and breed. Common problems among rabbit owners are discussed, as are probable causes for irregular behavior, including instincts that make rabbits behave in certain ways. Both hutch and house rabbits, as well as troubles specific to each, are covered.


Author Notes

Dr. Anne McBride is an animal behaviourist lecturing in the Department of Adult Continuing Education at the University of Southampton. Her PhD thesis was on aspects of the social and parental behaviour of rabbits, and during her research she had bunnies living in her own home, moving them to the laboratory when they were due to give birth. She has worked on animal behaviour in a variety of contexts, including zoo animals and problem pets, and is a member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors with her own consultancy.
