Rabbit training

Quote Rabbit

Just like cats and dogs, rabbits are intelligent enough to learn new behaviours when given the appropriate incentives.

On this page we cover how to litter train your rabbit.

How to litter train a rabbit

Once you bring home your new rabbit you should keep it confined to a small room or rabbit cage for the first two days. Make sure you provide it with plenty of food, water, toys and paper or straw bedding. Your rabbit will soon familiarise itself with this new and secure environment and will naturally pick a spot where it feels comfortable going to the toilet. If you'd like your rabbit to pick a spot in a particular corner, bear in mind the natural behaviour of eating and defecating at the same time - consider placing food near your preferred spot. As soon as your rabbit picks its spot you can put a small tray full of cat litter in the same place. After another day or so, your rabbit will probably be ready to venture around the rest of the house under your supervision and should naturally return to its original spot for any eliminations.

 

You should try to clean out your rabbit's tray every 36 hours.
