My bunnys LOVE dried peppermint and chamomile they also LOVE dehydrated apple!
If you are looking for a store bought treat I recomend "garden loops"

And if you are looking for a healthy treat i recomend oat hay or forage mix!

Not knowing your rabbits' current diet, just wanted to mention some cautions...

Before offering treats, be sure your rabbit is already acclimated to a daily diet that includes generous hay, daily greens and limited pellets. If they are already on such a diet, then remember that new treats should be introduced slowly and in small quantities.

Fresh fruit is fine (limited to 1-2 Tbsp/day). Dehydrated fruit is more concentrated (sugar) so the offered amount should be less.

Mine went bananas for fresh banana! Mine also loved the green tops of strawberries, dried banana chips, and craisins.

My bun loves fresh bananas. I have to hide and eat one or I get the glare from him. He also likes carrot. I haven’t tried Apple yet but, it is on the list. I have also read that they like dried tangerine.

I have one bun who likes Oxbow Digestive Support treats and any kind of banana, fresh or dehydrated, but if he eats too much, it upsets his stomach.

My other one loves any and all treats EXCEPT banana! He gets little bits of Oxbow Simple Rewards treats and the occasional oats and dehydrated banana. Yep, he'll eat dehydrated banana, but runs away from fresh banana!

I'm still slowly introducing this new treat for Dr. Cheese by Sweet Meadow Farm. He has somewhat of a sensitive tum so he's on an all hay diet and hesitant to try fruits until I get him successfully on some other veggie/leafy treats. Currently has been good with Romaine lettuce which he FLIPS for. Sweet Meadow Farm has a lot of natural options for adding more to the hay diet without making it TOO sugary and I'm currently on day 3 of slowly introducing the Dandelion Leaf by them as a little extra something 😁. So far he's been loving it and did some binkys after he first tried it even though he literally just got a pinch of it and his digestion has been doing great with it!! I ordered some of their others like the rose hips and parsley root. I also have a foraging mat that I hide the dandelions in to get his brain moving and keep him from inhaling it in one take which he has a habbit of doing 🤪
My last bun had an iron stomach and could pretty much eat anything with no problems, he loved apple, parsley, kale, and pretty much any oxbow simple rewards brand treats.

Treats are a tiny fraction of Ted’s diet. That said, he likes

banana
apple
honeydew melon
cantaloupe
watermelon
raisins
dandelions
alfalfa cubes
Sherwood digestive support tablets
Oxbow Natural Science biscuits

The only word he knows besides his name is “biscuit”. I will say “who wants a biscuit?” and he comes running. He eats it, then flops. Its sort of funny.

I love that! I've only had Dr. Cheese the last few months and he's already over a year old, but I've been trying to teach him some phrases. Everyday when I let him out of his playpen I say "Do you want to come out?" and whenever I get him more hay I say "Hay?". I've also used a little finger movement to teach him "come" which he's actually pretty good at!! I hope to teach him more down the road once he gets more adjusted to more treat options 😁

Yeah rabbits can learn a few things, especially when motivated by a treat payoff.

I just noticed that you’re in Wisconsin, the Land of Cheese. Maybe that’s how you came up with the name Dr Cheese? Whenever I used to pass through Kenosha I would stop at the Mars Cheese Castle for a little treat of my own.

Yeah, and Cheese is definitely treat motivated so training with him is painless. What's funny is I actually didn't name him! I adopted him from a shelter in Chicago 😂, but how could I change a name like Dr. Cheese especially being in Wisconsin 😂.Those cheese stops are so worth a visit for sure, can be pricey but high quality 😁

Both my boys definitely know their names.... although they choose when they mind me! Lawrence also knows "look" because I will use it to tell him to "look here for a treat"! He will stop what he's doing and run over if I say look!

They also know what "night night" means, because they get a digestive supplement right before I go to bed! I'll ask them if they're ready for their "night night treat", and Lawrence will start running circles, and Lucas will sit up like a little gentleman! ☺
