You are a new owner, so to the bunny everything about you is new. There are new voices, new sounds, and new smells. The first step on making your new pet feel comfortable with you holding him is to know how to handle him properly.
Bunnies in the wild are never picked up from above…except when they become someone’s dinner….So it’s not a natural behavior to be off the ground in someone’s hand that is a process that at Gio’s Holland Lop begins at birth. We handle our babies with tender care and train them to feel safe.

You can place the bunny’s chest against yours when holding it and its head next to yours. You can also hold it like you would a baby, still holding its hind
quarters with one hand and having a good grip and good support of its back and head on your arm. When pick up time arrive we will show you how to handle your baby properly.

to hold the bunny. Start of by having them hold the bunny on their laps while they sit on the floor, in case they do drop the bunny it won’t be from a high
distance. Never allow children to hold a bunny by its
