    No I wouldn't... although I know some people do.

    I hear too many stories of rabbits being injured on leads and harnesses. The way I see it rabbits are prey animals, and despite how domesticated they are they still behave like rabbits i.e bolt when they are scared etc... I wouldn't take my rabbits out on a walk because I think it is too much of a risk etc...

    I never have but I have heard it done. I tried Tango with l harness once so we could walk in the garden together but he didn't like it so I never bothered with it since.

    Well I usually just take him around the backyard lol since we haven't yet gotten him an outdoor cage. I used to walk him on the street too but he didn't like that at all.
    And yes I get a few strange looks,from the next door neighbour especially. He thinks I'm insane.

    Well there's not much use "walking" a rabbit like a dog, I just put the harness on and let them go as they like.

    None of my rabbits have ever been worried while using the harness, some might have been nervous at first but once they're out on the lawn they forget it's there. To keep them from getting injured its important to be careful and NEVER leave a rabbit wearing a harness unattended. I've had rabbits who got their feet entangled in the lead, so now I try my best to keep the lead of the ground, and if they do get entangled, fix it fast before the lead gets stuck somewhere and the rabbit's foot gets yanked.

    I would be too scared that he is going to suddenly 'bolt' and injure himself. I definately wouldn't take him off your own propery, he could get scared by any other animals and there could be wild rabbits with diseases about.
