Benefits of Becoming a Bunny Parent

bunnyMaking the decision to bring a bunny into your life, or any other pet for that matter, is a big one. There are many things to consider like space, especially in New York City, and maintenance. After you convince yourself you’re ready to take the plunge into parenthood, you can start thinking about all the love that little ball of fluff is going to bring to your life. We can’t list all the benefits of becoming a bunny parent, but we can definitely name a few.

5 Benefits of Being a Bunny Parent

Less Space Required

Space in New York City is hard to come by. And when you’re considering adding a fur baby to your family, that needs to be one of the first things you think about. The great thing about owning a bunny is that bunnies don’t take up as much space as other pets. Bunnies are cute and cuddly and they don’t even require you to walk them. They just need some space that has been bunny-proofed to run around in for an hour or two a day. A small cage or playpen with water, hay and a litter-box is all it takes to create the perfect environment for adding a hoppy family member.

Quiet

As much as we love dogs, sometimes dogs can get a bit rambunctious. They tend to wake up to noises in the middle of the night and have been known to bark at house guests and even random strangers. Bunnies are the exact opposite. If you’re looking for a relatively low maintenance but high reward pet, a bunny could be a great option for you. What they lack in bark they make up for in cuddles.

Distinct Personalities

Many people are under the impression that bunnies don’t have much of a personality, but really the exact opposite is true. Bunnies have distinct personalities, just like humans. That’s why it’s really important to spend some time with the bunny you’re thinking about adding to your family before doing so. Some bunnies are playful and others are more shy and reserved. Pick a bunny that’s going to suit your personality type.

Bunnies Love to Bond

Bunnies just like other pets love to bond with their owners. As a bunny owner, interacting with your bunny on a daily basis is going to cause you guys to become close. Bunnies have the capacity to recognize their parent’s voice, come on command and will even follow you from room to room and jump on your lap if you let them. They are loving creatures that are much cuddlier than you think. Forming a bond with a little ball of fluff is one of the best parts of bringing a bunny into your life.

Easily Trained

Bunnies are easily trained. They can be taught to use a litter-box and through positive reinforcement training, they can be taught to learn certain behaviors by rewarding them for completing the task. Many of the same methods used to train dogs can be used on bunnies. If that’s not another reason to bring a bunny into your life, we don’t know what is.
