Rabbit Training

house rabbit training litter guide

🐇💕House rabbit training guide

Having trouble training your house rabbit? Does your bunny seem to only listen when food is on the table? Perhaps they can't refrain themselves from doing their business in all the wrong spots? Read our quick guide on house rabbit training.

 

We have been getting a lot of questions asking us, how do you litter train your house rabbit?

 

Litter training should be done as soon as you get your rabbit. This is because the rabbit will find it easier to learn. It is possible to train any rabbit, however rabbits that have been spayed or neutered have a much higher success rate.

 

Now the first step is to buy a good litter box suitable for rabbits. Usually we recommend buying boxes designed for rabbits but these tend to be too small for rabbits to comfortably use. It should fit into their cage easily, putting the tray or box into the corner of their cage or play area is a smart strategy.

 

At first it might seem as though your house rabbit training is failing, your bunny has no regard for where they do their business but this will change over time if you follow these simple steps. When your bunny misses the tray or box, you can simply use a paper towel to soak up wee and pick up their poops and place them back into the litter tray. Spray down the place where they went outside of their litter box with a water and vinegar solution. This masks their scent and they should prefer to go to the toilet in their litter box after some time if you are persistent.

 

This works for most house rabbit litter training, but not in all cases will this method succeed. Usually this is caused by them preferring a different spot. If all else fails you can give in and try moving the box to somewhere they prefer.

 

Another strategy that works well is to put their hay next to the litter tray so they are accessible to your rabbit. Rabbits have a tendency to enjoy eating while they are on the toilet. Yes really. Try it, it might work for you and your rabbit will kick their naughty habits.

 

Here is a great hay feeder you can use in combination with the large litter trays.

House rabbit litter trays

This larger house rabbit litter tray allows your rabbit to easily access their restroom. Pair it up with the hay feeder and they should be one happy bunny!

  • I got my daughter a bunny and we have been wanting/trying to litter train her. The problem is she don’t like “pans”. Any kind of pan/box type item she will immediately grab it and literally throw it and it’s contents. What, if anything, can I do?

  • Hi there
    I got a pair of white red eyed rabbits earlier , I had kept them in a big dogs cage and used to let them out many times in a day inside the house
    I was unsuccessful in litter training and the stinch was terrible , they chewed on the wires of many devices inspite of being well fed whole day
    I got a small baby and they grew really big to handle them and aggressive I had to give them away in a farm house
    But now that by baby is 2 years I want to again keep one rabbit
    I am from India -bangalore and here we don’t really find the stuff you mention to train them
    I would really like for my rabbit to be like a member of family moving around freely in house without damaging anything

    Can you guide me on
    1) accomadation /bedding of rabbit
    2) food ( what to feed and how many times)difficult to find hay
    3) how to train to not chew on wires and household stuff
    4) best breed of rabbit for my scenario
    Please email me also

  • My rabbit is litter box trained and has a beautiful two story hutch. She is spayed and 7 month old now. We are having a problem with her chewing the metal bars of her cage at all hours of the day. She had plenty of hay and toys to play with and chew on. She just wants the door open. She can’t always have access to her extended play area. How do I break her of this behavior?
