When we got him he was very very friendly and ever since we have picked him up and socialised with him everyday, but hes slipping into bad habits. we let him run around in the garden for about 2-3 hours a day but when it comes to putting him in his cage again, he goes absolutely mental. I Cannot handle him without my arms, hands and chest being ripped to shreds. Are we giving him to much freedom? Do i need to handle him more?
Is he neutered? I noticed with Bunbun that he was starting to behave very badly before I had him fixed.
Another reason could be maybe the cage is too small? Maybe you could buy a pen and attach it to the cage so he has room to run around when you’re not home?
It’s hard to say for sure and I’m not an expert. You might want to try a rabbit forum or the Instagram community of rabbit-owners, it’s pretty big and they’re all really nice.
