    Default Rabbit bonders, Essex or London?

    Anyone know of anyone? Or anyone on here who does it? Or any rescues which would?

    Thanks x

    I know ARC help with bonding, but only when at least one of the Rabbits is Adopted from them. Santa used to be a fantastic source of advice re bonding, but she's at Vet School now. Is it for your Rabbits ?

    The RWAF provide some basic information

    http://rabbitwelfare.co.uk/rabbit-ca...nding-rabbits/


    I am afraid I follow my own 'rules' when bonding. IE I go with my gut instinct as to what is the best method for a particular pair of Rabbits. The only groups I have had have been siblings, so my experience in bonding groups is limited.

    I do have a couple of 'rules' I always adhere to- 1 100% no 'Stress bonding', eg putting the Bunnies in a bath tub or taking them on car trips. And 2- If a fight occurs that results in an injury that draws blood I stop and I do not try again.

    I emphasise that this is just my personal view for any Rabbits in my care. What others do is up to them

    NB- If you think your Rabbit is unwell it is essential to seek immediate veterinary attention.

    Last time I was looking, the local rescues would only do it if you adopted one of their bunnies.

    I ended up bonding Alfie and Muffin (Alfie's last wife) myself but I was lucky that Muffin was very laid back and just let Alfie do his thing.

    Yea for Clementine and Atticus, or maybe just all 4 together tbh oh yea I can't be dealing with stress bonding, I don't like that.

    My velvets are ridiculously highly strung, never again will I attempt bunny bonding


    So I'm basically hearing... add a 5th bun from a rescue and they'll get them all together? Tbh I doubt one more would make a lot of difference maybe I could say any 5th member you like, I'll take them, aslong as they all end up together and happy

    I thought you used a bonder before with Atticus and Clementine? Or have I imagined that? Although a group of five would be lovely, it seems a bit extreme to have to rescue another rabbit to get your four bonded together.

    I was just kidding Altho I'm not against any amount of buns tbh

    Yea I did, I don't think that's a possibility this time around unfortunately though

    The Rabbit Residence just up the M11 at Royston used to when Caroline was there, but not sure if they still do now.
    Every Bun deserves some love, no matter what their breed, colour or background

    There's GBH rescue in Beckenham. I have no real experience of them, but did have an email exchange with Jacky when I was interested in adopting a pair of her rabbits. It may be that she would offer bonding.

    Bubbles was from GBH. And our hammy Cooper. That was a long while ago though. Jacky is lovely and there was another lady who fostered for her (the name escapes me now).

    Rabbit Residence no longer offers a private bonding service. Derricks Den comes highly recommended, there's also Rabbit Rambles which is now run as a separate business by Caroline which is near Cambridge.
