How To Trance A Rabbit


You’re probably thinking “why would I ever want to trance a rabbit?” Well, if you have an unruly house rabbit, or one with some behavior problems you will likely find that you need to pick him up or move him at times. At other times you will want to just handle your bunny while he is in his “safe space,” perhaps while cleaning the litter box or rearranging furniture. It can be difficult to know exactly how to approach your rabbit, especially when he doesn’t seem interested in interacting with you and may even be agitated. Though it may seem odd at first if you are new to the art of trancing rabbits, when done properly it can help both parties relax and make for a more pleasant interaction for everyone involved!

First, let the rabbit walk around a bit to get some energy out.

First, let the rabbit walk around a bit to get some energy out. This will help with relaxation and trance induction. Make sure you have a safe place for the rabbit to walk around in so it can run around for a few minutes, but not too long – if your bunny is scared or has never been outside before, keep it in an area where he/she does not feel cornered (such as behind furniture).

Second, put your elbows on your knees or sit on the floor.

You’ll need to sit down, preferably on the floor, so you can be comfortable and relaxed. You want to make sure that the area you’re in is quiet and safe for your rabbit—if there are other animals or children around, it’s best not to trance them until you’re alone with your rabbit. It’s also important that if you choose a location indoors such as a bedroom or office, then keep any doors closed so that there’s no chance of escape (and definitely don’t try this with an outdoor rabbit!).

Third, keep your hands in the middle of the palms up and place it right in front of you.

Third, keep your hands in the middle of the palms up and place it right in front of you. Don’t move your hands or touch the rabbit. Just keep them there for a few minutes until the trance takes effect.

After this period of time has passed, you can then proceed with whatever else needs to be done.

Fourth, Let the rabbit smell your hands.

  • Sit in front of your rabbit.
  • Hold your hands, palms up, at the level of your chest.
  • Let the rabbit smell them but don’t move them or touch it (you’ll scare it).
  • Don’t talk to it, make eye contact with it or move your head; just stare straight ahead and let its curiosity get the better of it.

Fifth, Concentrate on yourself.

In order to trance a rabbit, you’ll need to be calm and relaxed. This may sound easy enough, but many people have difficulty relaxing. If you can’t relax easily, try following these steps:

  • Focus on your breathing – focus on each breath as it goes from the bottom of your lungs into the top of your lungs, then back down again. Pay attention to how your chest expands with each inhalation and recedes when you exhale; feel the air move through your nose or mouth (whichever is more comfortable for you). Repeat this process until it becomes almost automatic—you don’t even have to pay conscious attention anymore because it happens automatically in response to other thoughts or actions (such as talking).
  • Focus on your heartbeat – count how many beats there are in one minute (this will vary depending upon age and gender), then multiply that number by six—this is how many times per minute an average adult heart beats while resting quietly without exerting itself physically in any way whatsoever! Be sure not only

Keep calm and watch that cute little furry nose!

When you’re trying to trance a rabbit, the most important thing is to stay calm. The more relaxed and patient you are, the more likely it will be for your rabbit to relax too. As you approach your pet, pause for a moment and focus on slowing down your breathing and taking deep breaths until both of you are calm. Once that’s done, try speaking in a soft voice as you talk about how much fun it will be when he falls asleep.


Once your rabbit is in a trance, take this time to do some of the things you’ve been meaning to do. You can clip its nails, brush its fur, or just sit and enjoy the moment because our little friends are always running around and it’s good for them (and us) to be calm every now and then.
