I haven’t tried any of the rabbit leashes. I was looking at the comfort harness before but it looked too big. I’ve just been using a kitten harness for my rabbits, it’s an H shape and has a buckle at the waist and the neck, and the leash detaches from it, it’s very easy to get on or off. Mine’s Hagen brand if it helps at all.

Amy: Mary, can people take their rabbit out on a leash? Because I've seen a lot of people do this.
Mary: Yeah, I have too and it really scares me. It scares me because years ago I started collecting stories from people who sent me emails about why their rabbit got hurt or some rabbits were killed that were taken out on leashes with harnesses.
And people want to be out in public with their rabbit. They love when people stop them and say "oh, look at you, a rabbit on a leash" and it gets the owner a lot of attention. It's really not good for rabbits because rabbits can hear things for example that the owner can't hear. The rabbit could hear a plane going overhead long before an owner can. A sudden lawn mower starting up, a dog barking, a child shouting.
Amy: Anything. Anything. Again, they're prey animals they always think they're going to be eaten so they'll make a jerky, you know, movement and their spines are so sensitive, that boom, dead.
Mary: That's right. There's one rabbit owner whose rabbit was terrified by something, I honestly don't remember what in the environment, but something and the rabbit started spinning around and got completely tangled in this leash and cut off his airway, his own airway in his attempts to get loose. Very sad tales.
Mary: So, bottom line, it's really not the safest thing to do. People will do it, and we know in Europe it's very popular. But if people ask me, my opinion is that it's much safer to keep your rabbit off a leash, off a harness, inside the home really.
Amy: Yeah. Better safe than sorry.
Mary: Yeah. So, yeah.

Measure your rabbit to determine the appropriate size for the harness. Place the tip of a measuring tape at the base of your rabbit's neck and measure the length about halfway down its spine, about two inches behind its front legs. Record this measurement.
