Bunny Behavior problem? Need to spray or neutered?
my 4months old male Lionhead bunny seems to afraid of anything. He was take care by me since he was 1month. Recently, I went on a 2 week trip and left him with my friend who has a dog. I told my friend not to let him outside of his cage but she didn't listen and let him out together with her dog. Now, I got him back home,he got scare of any sounds or any movements I made,and he doesn't remember me at all. He eats and poo well.I found out that he groom himself a lot than normal and just lay down in his cage, not active like before anymore.He forgot the tricks, litter training and everything.
I think you've answered your own question. That time of being away from your home, your rules and your environment has taken a toll on your bunny. He needs to get used to that environment again, first of all, and then will need to just acclimate to the rules that you have for him (litter training). His behavior might be changed, but that is probably due to a personality rather than a hormonal change. He is only 4 months old, which is young enough for things to take a heavy toll on him. If he was scared of the dog, you may never be able to get him to be a carefree bunny again. Most of the time after one bad experience an animal will become scared or aggressive. Prey animals will have a harder time breaking out of this pattern as their survival depends upon it!
Just give him time, let him have his own space, and be slow and quiet around him.

For instant your child is mad at you under a certain reason that she/he disagree. She/he slam the door, kick the closet door, kick the wall, and start breaking things. What is your best choice to handle that situation?

My male neutered cat Thomas has such an interest in my 14-year-old female dachschund Snapple that he always wants to be around her. He lays by her in her bed and he rubs up against her when she is walking around the house. Unfortunately, Snapple does not share the same loving...
