I just purchased a pet rabbit to help train my beagle pup. The pup is 15 weks old.

The pup seems to be doing well at sight chaseing. The question I have is this. When the rabbit is in his pen (Pen is on the ground ) The pup will hang around the pen and bark up a storm.

How long can I leave him at the pen ? I am scared if I leave him to long he will loose interest.

If he is barking at the pen and sight chasing, then I wouldn't let him see the rabbit to long.

I would start taking him out in the field late in the evening or right after dark and see if you can find a rabbit on a lane/trail. If you see a rabbit take off, call the pup to the spot and let him work the area. He will know what to do once he gets the scent.

Remember, he is only a pup, so don't push him to much.

Good Luck and Have fun
