Since the Rabbit pet trend took over the world in recent years, there has been a huge effort put forth in learning about potty training rabbits by rabbit lovers. If you are familiar with rabbit's natural behaviors, you certainly know that rabbits do not like changes,they resist changes and that's why I believe it is so important to start potty training at very early age.
Our process is a success with our buyers and other breeders as well. I see people trying to imitate what I have started all the time!!! Some even teach others thru their websites on how to potty train rabbits, when they themselves keep their own rabbits in wire cages! How absurd. You can't teach what you do not know.
Here is what you need to know about potty training your rabbit and SUCCEED.
There are 3 real facts you need to know about potty training your rabbit.
1- Start it right, get them started early in life
Not all rabbits will be potty trained just because you put a litter box in front of him. In my opinion rabbits will learn their instinct habits from their mom. If they see their mom peeing thru the wires of her cage,they will learn to do that too. Rabbits grow up fast and they are animals of routine, they do what they do as a habit. Bad habits are hard to break in a rabbit,so it's best to start it right from the beginning. Rabbit urine smell and stain,so if you want a clean bunny roaming your home, buy a clean bunny to roam your home!
2- Give your bunny a clean place
The cleanliness of their hutch is the key factor in keeping a rabbit potty trained. Often I see breeders that work out of their home and have a family to care for,saying that they wire cages are clean.....well I doubt that very much. That is why most breeders choose wire cages to begin with. They allow urine and hard waste to accumulate underneath their cages on trays that attract flies and smell nasty.
Our babies live in clean wooden hutches that has been pre-treated and waterproofed, our hutches are cleaned and sanitized daily as the babies receive daily interaction and playtime. I'm only able to do all that because I do not work out of my house, and I have my daughters at home helping me. I just cannot imagine how can a person working out of their home and with young families to care for could possibly clean 20-30 rabbits daily. Clean environment means clean babies. Once you have purchased a clean bunny,just keep his hutch as clean as possible. Pickup all debris from the floor.
3_ Daily bunny potty training
Baby rabbits can be adorable and fun to watch, but they get distracted very easily. Persistence plays a huge role in determining if a rabbit will be potty trained or not. Unless you clean his hutch several times a day and teach him where to go, they will fail.
Our process has been talked about all over the world, We have people shipping our babies all over USA because our rabbit potty training program really works. The key point here is, bunnies need to live in clean environment to learn to be clean.
We train our babies to know where the litter box is from early age,by 9 weeks of age they are 100% Urine trained.
