Litter Training Your Rabbitt
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

A rabbit makes a makes a great pet because they are easy to care for, do not smell bad, and are affectionate pets. Even more, in 6 short steps you can litter train any rabbit, making the process of cleaning up after them even easier. Litter boxes can be posted around the rabbits living area allowing you to let your bunny run in and out of his cage without worrying about a urine spot on your favorite rug. Litter training also dramatically reduces the smell of rabbit urine leaving your house always smelling fresh. So follow these 6 steps to litter training your rabbit:

1. Choosing the Litter Box and Litter: The first thing you want to do is buy a litter box and some rabbit-safe litter. Always choose a litter box that will fit in your rabbit’s cage but is big enough that the rabbit can comfortably sit inside of it. Then purchase a litter that is recommended for rabbits (such as Carefresh, Purina brand, etc).

2. Introducing the Litter Box: You can begin litter training when you rabbit is around 4 or 5 months old. By this time you may have noticed that your bunny has chosen a certain area of his cage to excrete waste. This is the area that you should place a litter box. If the rabbit then chooses a new place to pee, don’t become frustrated, just move the box to the new area he chooses. The rabbit will eventually give in and go in the litter box.

3. Make the Litter Box Inviting: You want to make the litter box look inviting, so place some timothy hay near the litter box allowing your rabbit to munch on an enjoyable treat while he sits in the box. You also want to keep your rabbit in its cage as he is learning to use the litter box, this limits the area that he can be, making the litter box a more enjoyable area.

4. Increasing the Area the Rabbit Can Roam Free: Once that rabbit is continually using the litter box in his cage it is time to place a litter box out of the cage and let the rabbit roam free in a small area.

5. Motivating the Rabbit to Use the Litter Box Outside of It's Cage: Make sure the rabbit uses the litter box outside his cage by rewarding him with treats when he uses the outside litter box. But do not punish him harshly when he does not use the litter box, instead show your bunny to the right area to do their business.

6. Giving the Rabbit Full Freedom: Once the bunny continually uses the litter box in the segregated area, enlarge the area that the bunny can roam free and add an extra litter box or two. Especially make sure to put litter boxes in places that the rabbit spends a particular amount of time or seems to enjoy.

Congratulations your bunny has not been litter trained. And remember, this process is made easier if you have an indoor bunny cage that allows for easy access to the continually change the litter box within their cage, since this is the litter box they will most likely be using the most often.

In the last paragraph you meant, '...has now been trained' instead of 'not' I think. It was nice reading your article. No idea you could litter train a bunny but now I know. Thanks!
