HRS Podcast #12 An interview with Educator Jody Springborn about bonding
In this episode we talk about bonding two rabbits.  We talk about some of the tips and tricks we have both used over the years.  This is an art - not a science, so you should know that there is no one right way.  Instead there are lots of techniques and you should have lots of them on hand to try with the pair you are bonding.  You can learn more by going to this link: and downloading this great presentation provided by GAHRS!     A special note for our Google Play listeners -  Google tells us that they are changing the podcast format.  I am not yet sure what this means for downloading this podcast.  We will try to make the switch to their new platform, but you may have to download manually from Podbean for a while until we figure it out.  Thanks for listening!
