New Pets Cards N°01. Take care of his dwarf rabbit

The rabbit is a territorial animal, and relatively dominant. You must teach him as soon as possible to share his territory: otherwise pay attention to bites when you put his hand in his cage, even to feed him. He is very curious, and participates in family life: that said, he remains very timid and suspicious; He will learn little by little to accept the noises and movements that surround him. Very good playmate, it can prove to be a "puppy who goes to get his baballe": naturally, the rabbit loves to move everything (manger, sticks to nibble, ...). It is very fun to teach him to run after a bullet, or to throw him a toy that he will raise himself ...

Rabbits are predisposed to dental abscess whatever their age.
