House Bunny Training

On March 26, 2011, in Rabbit Care, by tina

If you decide to have a pet bunny in the house the first thing you should consider is getting a cage for your rabbit to live in when it cannot be supervised. It needs to be its safe place to go with plenty of room for it to play and move around. Litter training a house bunny is a good idea and can help keep the rabbits cage cleaner. Rabbits generally find a certain area in their cage they like to go in. Place the litter box in the cage and observe. If the rabbit is choosing a different spot then where the litter box is then try placing it in the spot where it keeps going.  It may take some trial and error but with some patience rabbits can be trained. We have had very good luck getting our house bunny trained. It makes cleaning time so much easier.

The area you let your rabbit out to play should be a safe place for it to play. Make sure their is no electrical cords or anything around the rabbit can get hurt on. Remember too that rabbits are chewers, give them their own toys for chewing and keep them from getting to your good furniture.  If you have other pets its best to supervise to make sure you are comfortable with how they are getting along.  Many rabbits get along just great with cats and dogs but each animal is different so its best to watch and make sure you are comfortable before leaving any other animal with them.

When a rabbit  gets frightened they need their safe place to go to which should be their cage. The cage should be a comfort place for your rabbit. Plenty of toys, a special place to get a treat and just knowing its safe to be their.  Rabbits frighten easily so its a good idea to make sure they have this security. A stressed rabbit can become ill easily.

Rabbits have their own personalities just like a dog or cat. They enjoy playing and teasing. Our rabbit likes to play a version of hide and seek. He can be a tease.  Enjoy spending time with your rabbit and you will discover their wonderful personality and what fun a house bunny can be.
