I totally agree putting your rabbit on a leash doesn't sound like a good idea I'm not trying to say that your a bad pet owner I just don't want you to regret your desision when you end up suverly hurting it and it ends up dieing from its injuries  I would take their advice and get a rabbit if you were going to keep it indoors take good care of it keep it out of situations were it could get hurt and not plan on getting one if you plan on leash training it cuz I think your going to end up regretting that desision trust me just forget about the leash I would hate for it to get hurt and I know you would too

Expertise

I have 4 house rabbits and experience with rabbit pregnancy, babies, bunny bonding, litter training, behavior training, cage and cage-free living, bunny proofing your home, basic health and diet, spaying/neutering, bunny talk, and bunny fun. I have neutered and spayed my rabbits and have dealt with amputations, broken bones, holistic pain management with rabbits so i can give you advice for surgery aftercare, BUT I am NOT a Veterinarian and cannot give you in depth answers on health, biology, or medicines.

If you suspect something is wrong with your rabbit please do not wait - go to the vet immediately. Signs include bleeding, broken bones, watery diarrhea, no poop for more than 12 hours, not eating/drinking, un-responsive/lethargic/listless behavior, screaming, constant LOUD teeth chatter. Be safe not sorry. Go to the vet!

I love rabbits and am here to help you have the best bunny experience you can with your pet. I deal only with pet rabbits and do not endorse hobby breeding/breeding for fun. I do NOT support breeding operations regardless of their purpose. My rabbits are valued members of my family. They live cage free.
