What can a rabbit do?

At Rabbit Smarties, we believe that the Bunny is the most versatile animal on the planet.   They are finely-bred show animals.  They are athletes that can leap over obstacles many times their height.  Some produce wool that is seven times softer and warmer than that of a sheep.  As companions, they are quiet, easy to care for, and provide hours of entertainment.  For the homesteader, they feed hungry children, consume your garden scraps, and are high-output fertilizer factories.  For the family with school-age kids, they teach compassion, responsibility, and and the importance of hard work.  The large community surrounding the rabbit hobby is filled with adults and children that quickly become fast friends and are very supportive of one another.  The rabbit world is a great place to be.

What does Rabbit Smarties do?

We are here to promote the well-keeping of rabbits in all of their capacities, and help your rabbit experience begin as smoothly as possible.  We offer training through books, videos, and our blog to help you avoid common mistakes and start out strong with your bunny project.
