I’ve seen the knot in SPA training, but will leave someone more experienced than me to comment on it’s usefulness and safety. I believe novices should be exposed to knots which have a purpose, are easy to use and easy to tie/recognise. The person leading the activity should tell the bunny story and demonstrate how to tie a lace at the same time.
Healthy poo should be around the size and shape of a pea or larger in big breeds. It should be light brown and be made up of lots of hay. If your rabbit is at risk, they will need daily checks to monitor for any signs of eggs or maggots. If you suspect your rabbit has fly strike, get to a vet immediately as time is very limited. Poor dental health is one of the most common killers in rabbits, often because of an incorrect diet.
So although each test only resulted in one figure, actually two were being tested with the ‘loser’ of each little tug-o-war becoming the published result. I relied pretty quickly that although tying messy knots gave varied results, I wasn’t going to learn much with the small number of tests we had scheduled. So I stuck to testing neat, dressed knots and investigated the variations in them. Due to the difficulty of terminating a rope so as to preserve its ultimate strength, each test consisted of tying two knots in each end of a short piece of rope, then pulling it to breaking.
These sweet snaps of the world’s biggest bunnies tying the knot will bring a smile to your face this Easter. I much prefer “dangle, twist, twist, poke” now as it seems to lead to more intuitive knot faffing and more often then not, enough tail end to rethread and stopper. He then picked it up in 30 seconds after struggling for the previous 20 minutes. Depends what technique you’re using to tie the knot, of course. Keep your rabbit healthy and happy with our essential guide.
Personally I use a bowline-on-the-bight in the rare instances when I need this, probably because I’m a dedicated bowline man. TH eset up is for top ropes of course rigged through a top anchor and back to a GriGri attached to the floor with an adjustable lanyard, which also has a krad to cli into the belayers belay loop. Nor even which of reasonable alternative knots, for that matter. I’ve got LOAL, but there isn’t enough background info on his tests to compare usefully to mine – I can only assume he tested the bunny with both loops loaded. Having said that, I can’t see any justification in using a knot which makes two loops and only using one of them. If they’re using it because it is easier to undo, perhaps that a reason NOT to use it in this way.
It can cause urinary infection and incontinence, as well as the strange knot-tying contortions. The realistic feel of the internal knotted rope satisfies natural instincts while the varied textures and squeakers gear up for play. With minimal stuffing for less mess get ready for entertaining games and grins. KONG Floppy Knots are the newest arrival in the Knots tribe with a cheerful, floppy design allowing for great thrashing fun.
If you do find lumps or bumps, any suggestion of flystrike, injuries, discharge from nose, ears or eyes, book a visit to see a rabbit-savvy vet. Some people when grooming will hold their rabbit on its back so it goes perfectly still as if in a trance. This is in fact extremely cruel as the rabbit is, terrified and playing dead as part of its prey animal response to being caught by a predator.
