How do I Get My Bunny to Flop?


If you don’t know what a flop is, it is when a bunny flops on his/her side. Flopping shows great relaxation and happiness.

In this article, I will teach you how to “make” your bunny flop. Be in mind that every bunny is different! Some of these tips are things that I learned with my bunny.

Making Your Bunny Flop is Not Instant

Getting your bunny to flop might take a very long time! A bunny needs to become really relaxed for a period of time! They need to pick a spot and become comfortable in it.

Make sure you are patient with this. You might not get results in a snap!

Some bunnies are super awesome and comfortable all the time! If you have this kind of bunny, you don’t have to read this article! You are a very lucky human!

When I wanted my bunny to flop, I was very impatient. I kept on moving him to a different spot, trying to pet him constantly, and always give him attention. Although these things might help, you might become more frustrated with yourself rather than happy.

When Your Bunny Flops

When your bunny flops, make sure to wait just a little bit before you get a little closer. They might just be falling asleep.

Make sure you take lots of pictures and send them to me (or post it on Instagram)! If your bunny if positioned a little weirdly (do this when they are sleeping), you can move their ears, their legs, or whatever part very gently.

How to Make Their Chance of Flopping Higher

-Put fleece/comfortable blankets on the surface

-Make the temperature a bit higher

-Pet them

-Make sure the environment is quiet for them to sleep


If you want to take pictures of your bunny’s flop make sure you are patient with it! It will probably take a while until they reach that amount of relaxation. Make sure you take many pictures! Blog
