Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a study of the behavior of the domestic rabbit and its ancestor, the European wild rabbit. It has answers to almost all the questions you will ever have about why your rabbit acts the way it does. The author puts problem behaviors like biting in perspective, explaining the natural impulses behind them and providing ways to guide your rabbit out of them. Because our domestic rabbits have been bred mainly for appearance rather than for behavioral traits, they are still very close to their wild brethren in their behavioral habits. Thus, the author spends quite a bit of time exploring how rabbits live in the wild, and then shows how these behaviors carry forward into the domestic situation. This is a valuable work, as it is currently difficult to find information in print on wild rabbit behavior.

Rabbits can be irresistible. It is not uncommon for people to visit a pet store or go to a county fair and come home with a rabbit. How much trouble can such a cute critter be? Plenty! Rabbits are curious creatures that seem to get themselves in trouble all of the time. Since rabbits are "prey" rather than predators, they act quite differently from dogs and cats, which often requires a different approach to care. Rabbits also have very distinct personalities. The personality of a rabbit needs to be taken into consideration when owning a rabbit. With know legible advice, rabbits can be fantastic pets. Books such as Why Does My Rabbit...? can be indispensable in caring and loving a pet rabbit.
The book is divided into three parts. The first part deals with care of the rabbit, the second part discusses scientific information about the rabbit. The third portion of the book is probably most helpful. It is an alphabetical listing of just about any imaginable aspect of caring for a pet rabbit. The book is enjoyable to read because the author is not only an expert on animals as pets, she is also a rabbit lover. This book will be very helpful for people considering a rabbit as a pet and a true gift for those who have acquired a rabbit, have fallen in love with it, but don't know what to do with this adorable little rascal that seems to find mischief in every possible place.

This is the most comprehensive easy-to-read book on rabbit behavior I have found. I've had rabbits for five years and read a lot about their behavior. However, this book taught me so much more. I now have a much better understanding of why my rabbits do the things they do. What I especially like about this book is that it addresses issues for both indoor and outdoor rabbits. I didn't realize how many mistakes I was making when I let my rabbits "roam free" outside in nice weather. For example, I did not realize that vast, open spaces in the outdoors are frightening for rabbits, especially if they don't have some enclosure in which to hide. I will not make that mistake again.
Overall, this is an excellent book. It has given me much deeper insight into my rabbits' behaviors.

Before you buy one, read up! Before you give up on a bunny, read this book! Before you know it, your bunny with be your buddy, too! My bunny and I bonded immediately but he wasn't always mindful of my rules... now I know why he needs to dig and chew and I provide alternatives for him. He has his own bedroom that has been completely bunny-proofed and is allowed in the half of the house that has no carpet. Cords are covered in cloth and he seems to leave them alone now. He is the best pet I have ever had and is as affectionate as a dog and as playful as a cat. He is litter trained, and I feed him only vegies and hay. This book helped me understand his fear of being in the open yard with me, and to expect him to chew and dig because he is a rabbit.

Format: Paperback
A good thorough book on rabbits for the avid reader, of which I'm one. As a rabbit owner, I've bought many books on bunnies and they all have their own certain charm. However, what really makes this one stand out is its smooth flowing writing style that makes me feel like I'm reading a book. The book doesn't really have lists, contact charts or excessive photos. It simply addresses a problem in an understanding and sometimes light comical way that makes it a can't-put-down book, which is rare in non-fiction.

This book really helped us when our rabbit starting grunting all the time when she was running around. This was sudden, unexpected behavior from her especially since she seemed healthy, happy and full of life. We found the unexpected reason for this problem inside this book, which I won't give away (you'd be very surprised though!). We were able to act accordingly.

A good read for rabbit lovers who love to read.

Anne McBride's book on rabbit behavior describes both the normal and abnormal in rabbit actions. It is easy to use for reference, and many common problems are arranged in alphabetical order, and even deals with wild rabbits, a bit of history, and affects on behavior as separate chapters. In all, it is a handy book for rabbit lovers and owners to use in discovering more about these unique and lovable animals.
