Rabbits are now the third most popular pet in Britain but few owners understand their behavioural problems. Many of the problems that rabbits demonstrate can be avoided if their living conditions are adapted to follow their natural instincts and Anne McBride explains how to do this. She describes how rabbits live and breed in the wild, and the instincts your pet rabbit has inherited, which make it act as it does. With a range of problems, arranged alphabetically for easy-to-use accessibility, this book covers all types of rabbits, from hutch to house rabbits and fully covers the specific problems that can affect them.
Dr Anne McBride lectures at the University of Southampton and is a member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors. She was the rabbit behaviour expert on the BBC’s The Burrowers: Animals Underground television programme in 2013.
