Dogs: When it comes to dogs they seem to be from experience a lot more docile to bunnies from bunnies being perceived as a lack of threat. I had a Toy Poodle years back, who has since passed, who was very aggressive towards strangers and other dogs. However when it came to bunnies, especially baby bunnies, he would cry and cry to see them and give them love, almost as if he were their father. So every dog is different, but even in the most extreme cases a customer bonded their Pit Bull with their bunny to the point of the bunny literally would be carried on the Pit Bull's Back. The introduction should be made through the cage, and most of the time you will see the dog is more curious, than out to hurt the bunny. Competition with species usually occurs within that specific species fighting for dominance, as opposed to bunnies who are in a dogs eyes harmless.
Cats: In terms of cats, they are a little more tricky because cats carry a distinct hunting instinct of smaller animals. Owners of cats usually have a general idea of their cats hunting instinct, and with our direction and advice we can help determine the correct course of action. There are a tremendous amount of domesticated indoor cats who will simply leave the bunny to live its life and have no issue, especially in cats older in age. If there is an issue, they can always have free roam access to their own individual territories, and create a harmonious environment that way.
Again, our main goal is to put your pet bunny in the proper position to live a happy, healthy life, so after care follow-ups and pre-purchase inquiries are of the upmost importance.
