I'm just debating with a friend how they alert the handler when they have found something? Come back and nibble a shoe maybe??

Weird. I wonder how they train them, it says they are cheaper to train than dogs. But dogs are easy to train because they want to please humans, rabbits don't have any interest in doing so. I imagine it is all food reward-based training, but I can't imagine my buns being trained to do anything like that.

The only way I could envisage it is to train all potential victims to have a pocket full of vegetables!:lol:

It all seems odd, not least of all because most of us would just think the bunnies would be afraid. Still, if it can be done, well done to the brave buns doing hard work. I'm assuming they wouldn't do it at all if they really didn't "enjoy" it on some level. :thumb:
