BARKS presents session details from PPG’s 2020 Summit and Multi-Species Workshop Events in Phoenix, Arizona

Session Details:
Presenter: Emily Cassell
Session Title: HusBUNdry Basics: Language, Observation and Behavior in Bunny Cooperative Care
Session Type: Arizona Humane Society Workshop (1.5 Hours)

HusBUNdry Basics workshops will build on themselves throughout the week at Best Friends.

All learners will be exposed to the basics in body language, observation skills, and common behavior objectives in rabbit cooperative care. As prey animals, rabbits often have different behavioral tendencies than dogs and cats, so learning to build trust and foundation behaviors will also be a key portion of this workshop. Each day at Best Friends will be different. Attendees may be working with inexperienced bunnies or bunnies who have been taught by the previous workshop’s attendees. Our goal will be to provide these rabbits a head start in both their daily and more advanced husbandry, circling back to the event theme of cooperative care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Increase understanding of basic bunny body language.
  • Enhance observation skills.
  • Understand daily challenges in rabbit husbandry.
  • Learn what medical management behaviors are most important for rabbits to learn and why.
  • Gain knowledge of basic bunny biology.
  • Apply techniques to enhance daily and advanced husbandry of Bunny House residents.
