I bought this book mainly to get into my pet Bernard's little rabbity brain and it doesn't disappoint. The book is informative whilst being humourous and uses real problems to show examples of solutions.
It gives good advice to problems not usually covered in Rabbit Ownership books and tries to explain the reasons behind strange behaviour. It seems Bernard isn't just being naughty when he nibbles cables, he thinks their roots in his burrow.
All in all, this is a great book and I'd recommend it to all rabbit owners - particularly owners of house rabbits.

As I am new to the world of rabbits, I wanted a book that would educate me a little better. Once I started this book I couldn't put it down. It goes into depth about rabbits, behaviour, diet, exercise and answers questions you might have ie. why does a rabbit bite? etc. Common questions are all answered here. It gave me tips on how to entertain rabbits and illustrated that a hutch doesn't have to be everything in a rabbit's life.
An excellent read especially if you have only just bought a rabbit for the 1st time like me.

I have to disagree totally with the other reviewer of this book! I think it is an excellent book and I found it very helpful in explaining and understanding why my rabbits behave as they do. Common problems that rabbit keepers have (such as your adored pets digging up the garden, chewing your furniture and growling and spitting when picked up)are explained and helpful suggestions offered. I would recommend this book to anyone who keeps rabbits and has read the basic care books and now wants a greater insight into their behaviour.

This book is exceptional. Having owned two rabbits for two years, i felt i wanted to know more about them, this book fully explains how a rabbit reacts to different situations, with just about every question you could think about answered. Great if you are thinking of buying a rabbit - gives you an extact insite of just what to expect. Outlining that there is more to life for a rabbit than been shut up in a hutch. If you do already have a rabbit, and it bites, as they all do occasionally, it can explain why. Simple actions you make can cause this. And giving up and punishing it isnt necessarily the answer. Ten out of Ten.

If you're a first time rabbit owner, it's a great reference book - I highly recommend getting the book before purchasing a pet rabbit to get an idea of what their care entails. Even for experienced owners, it's a good thing to fall back on when you can't figure out your bunny.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Rabbit lover on 8 April 2010
Format: Paperback
This book is very basic, but still not for the beginners, as some of the content is rather misleading. The book looks at behavioural problems in house rabbits, but most rabbit owners with a basic knowledge know the need for spaying/neutering rabbits in order to prevent behavioural problems, cancer and sexual frustration. The author does not touch on this subject at all, which is a great shame and thus many of the "problems" the author addresses could easily be solved by spaying/neutering the rabbit. If one has this basic knowledge, the book is fun to read, but nevertheless redundant as these problems will not occur as the reader's house rabbits will 100% already be fixed.

Buy it, because you have a big interest in rabbits and would love another book to the collection. Don't buy it if you want to learn more about rabbits because you will most likely already know most of it.
