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.

    I love your blog and it’s humor! I’m hoping you can help me with the another problem. My rabbit has full range to the kitchen and has a huge kennel. Unfortunately she keeps pooping between the kitchen sink and stove. Regardless if there is a litter box there or not. How can I train her to go poop in the litter pan inside her cage? She is an incredibly spoiled and we don’t lock her up. Instead I sweep and mop the kitchen floor about once to three times a day. She’s not particularly messy other than that one corner. HELP! 😁🐇

    The information provided here helped me immensely when training my new rabbit. I’m a new rabbit mom so it is all a steep learning curve. That trick with the wee really does work, you just have to use persistence.
    Thanks for a great read as always, best regards.
