A good rabbit harness can make getting your bunny some extra exercise a real walk in the park. Luckily, Chewy has a great selection of rabbit harnesses and the leashes you need to go with them. You can also find a range of cool rabbit carriers on our site to cover all your bunny travel needs, including both hard and soft side bunny carriers!
When shopping for bunny harnesses, look for “H” or jacket-style designs. These tend to be more comfortable for bunnies and don’t pull on the neck like collar or figure-eight styles can. Harnesses made of mesh or another lightweight, breathable material provide added comfort, and you’ll want to find a style that fits snuggly without rubbing or pulling the fur too much. Designs that fasten easily with fuzzy fasteners and adjustable straps can be a plus, since getting the harness on can be tricky with a squirmy bunny. Many harnesses also come equipped with a little bell so you can hear your rabbit when you let her off leash (preferably in a safe area). And don’t forget to find a suitable leash for your bunny. Some harnesses for bunnies come with leads or leashes, but you may want to shop around until you find one that works well for you and your rabbit. Elastic leashes are a favorite with bunny owners since they don’t pull too much on walks. Whatever walking gear you need, Chewy has all the rabbit supplies you need to get your bunny happily hopping around town. Shop our small pet supplies section to find harnesses and leads, plus all the rabbit food, rabbit treats and rabbit toys you need to keep your hopper happy. You’ll even find lots of cozy rabbit beds and hideouts and the rabbit cages and rabbit habitats they go in, so your tuckered-out bunny has a great place to crash after walks. Check out our great selection of rabbit harnesses and get started on the path to great adventures with your bunny!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is it safe to put a harness on a rabbit?
It is safe to put a harness on a rabbit, but you’ll want to make sure your bunny’s temperamentally is suited to it. Try to distract your bunny with treats and go slowly so he doesn’t panic when you try to put it on. You also need to make sure to get a harness that’s suitable for bunnies in terms of size and design. Consult with your veterinarian before undertaking any new training regimens with your rabbit.
What type of harness is best for a rabbit?
The best harness for rabbits is an H-style harness—so-called because it looks like an “H” when you lay it out. The Kaytee Small Animal Harness & Stretchy Leash is a good example of a classic H-harness, or you can choose a jacket-style H-harness like the Niteangel Adjustable Soft Harness with Elastic Leash for Rabbits. Avoid collars or figure-8 style harnesses, as they can bind the neck and could be very dangerous for your bunny. As always, consult your vet before undertaking a new regimen with your rabbit.
