How to prevent bunny boredom
Give your rabbits a large hutch and run so they can get lots of exercise. Read more on Creating a suitable environment for your rabbits.
Add some toys, platforms to climb onto – and safe, untreated logs for your rabbits to explore. Give them a plastic tube or a cardboard box: as well as being something new to discover, they make ideal hiding places as rabbits can get scared easily. Most items are available from pet shops and pet supermarkets.
Give them variety. Keep some toys stored away: use different ones each week. This helps keep toys interesting for your rabbit – and also gives you a chance to clean them.
Rabbits find digging irresistible. So give them a planter filled with potting compost – it saves your grass from becoming a haven for holes! Ensure their run is sunk into the ground about 40cm, so they can’t burrow out and escape.
Train your rabbit to use a litter tray. Put some of their droppings in it. Offer a food reward, e.g. a small, natural rabbit treat, each time your rabbit jumps into the tray and uses it. Use a non-clumping, non-toxic litter.
