🐇💕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.
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!
