Big is sulking, he said first the cats, then frogs and now bunnies. I explained to him, the reason this is called Fourpawsetc is it is NOT always about the Canines.
Big Boy sees these two bunnies almost every day. They live running free in our neighbors yard.
Thanks to KB of Romping and Rolling in the Rockies, Big has been conditioned by treats and sweet words and watches as we walk by and pays them no mind.
He learned CAT and Bunny, means he gets a venison treat.. Instead of chasing them, he looks at me and I say sweetly, look at the sweet bunny, and hand him the treat.
KB calls it reconditioning training.
About 2 years ago, the white bunny appeared and has since been a common sight. She disappeared for a couple of months and I blamed the hawks.
She reappeared and had a tiny brown baby bunny with her. The baby looks wild, she is domestic.
The baby has grown rapidly and is almost the size of Mama. We can't decide if she adopted it or maybe someone found a wild bunny and she raised it. We have never seen the people, or I would ask them
This past week while I was out for my alone walk, I stopped with my cell in hand and she ran behind the tree. the brown bunny was about 10 feet away from her.
When I raised my hands to take pictures, she hopped really fast and bumped his butt with her nose. He moved a foot and stopped. I stood in amazement as he herded him with her nose bumping him in the butt until he was safely out of sight....
