I saw this DIY remote treat dispense and thought of you!

if its too small to read, it's pvc piping. In the doorway is a hook or something to help hold it up to get more incline. they're rolling kibble down it.

Thank you for sharing and thinking of me! We did think of this! It is a good idea but we are going to try something else first. Thanks again

So, just an update for everyone following along.. After discussing it, my husband and I have come up with hopefully a secure idea we hope will work well. We are going out today to pick up what we need so I’ll be sure to update you with how it goes!

you just said he runs outside, then runs back? so why not shut the door before he gets back?

 

think JRG's idea sounds heaps safer than what you are doing .

 

if still nervous, go with the divided crate idea to be doubly sure, all you need is to be able add a slide door.... either a side or top one, works either version.

 

unreal as it sounds we had a rabbit, english import that was so savage that is exactly what had to be done.. double cage with lift up sliding door so he could be shut in one side to clean and put food or whatever in the other side, then pull out the slider and put it back when he went into the other... ditto for matings, but the doe in one side, take out the slider and replace it when he followed your hand to attack it when you wanted to remove the doe again..... he sired great stock. none with his rotten behaviour or he would have been into the pot.

 

no idea why he was like it but you wouldnt believe the damage a rabbit can do with those teeth until you saw it and he could jump over 3 feet to sink em in and he was only a tiny Netherland Dwarf.

I’m trying to upload a photo to share but it’s not letting me.. I’m guessing the size is too big. It’s just a standard iPhone photo.. does anyone know how to make it smaller so I can upload it?

I don't have an iPhone any more so can't check but I think it gives you the option to choose a smaller version of the photo if you're sending it in an email. You could email the photo to yourself, choose a size that's under the 0.98MB allowed on the forum, then download it back to your phone from the email so you can then upload the small version to here.

 

I generally can't be bothered with doing stuff like that and just upload it to Flickr and post the Flickr link on the forum, which automatically embeds the image.

I find I can't upload a photo but can a screen shot. So I screen shot the photo and then upload that !!

Thank you Snook! Your idea worked! :clap:

 

So there you all go! Our not so pretty situation we have going on.. One crate for him to wait in, a plank of plywood to lift up and then the second crate to safely place food in and for him to eat. Topped with his blanket for extra comfort and privacy. No contact with him and us while using this and no stress! It worked well for our first night so let’s see how it continues once he gets used to it..

Just popping in to give you a high five for persevering and I hope the latest med trial and your new setup are successful. Anxiety sucks! :flower:

I'm glad the top helped with getting the photo loaded. It looks like you've got a good set up. I hope it works perfectly for you. :)

Thank you all for your support. I truely appreciate it. It’s been a long hard journey so if this works out well I will be so grateful to have a lot of less stress in our lives at feeding time. I’ll be sure to update in a little while to let you know how it is going .. thanks again! :)

Just a thought for the future, what if you change the routine around around each night?

Agree!

try not to be too predictable.   Keep him guessing!  You do not want him to think that he will get fed every time you put him into his crate.  Maybe feed him at different times of the day if that is possible or let different people feed him sometimes.  Anything (within reason and safety) to stop his wild anticipation of food!

Another here  who believes in mixing it up as much as you can so he is kept "off the boil" ....
