Your Rabbit Hutch Buying Guide


A rabbit hutch offers your pet more protection and shelter. Needless to say, a well-designed hutch also adds a rustic touch to the garden or home. Once you start shopping, though, you’re sure to find that there are so many hutches that you’re unsure of how to find the best for your bunny. Our guide offers you all the best tips to get the perfect home for your pet.

Quality

When it comes to our pets, only the best will do. But in the case of a hutch, quality can save your rabbit’s life. A poorly constructed hutch not only allows predators access to your pet but also fail to protect them against the elements or ill-fitted mesh.

Quality hutches can be bought online by looking at verified buyers and what they have to say in their reviews. Avoid hutches that are said to be rickety or those that contain subpar parts.

Size

Size is an essential factor to consider before you buy a hutch. It cannot be too small or your rabbit might injure itself or worse, develop severe cage stress. If you plan on keeping more than one rabbit in your new hutch, then there has to be enough space for both of them.

Single or Double

A hutch with a single level is great for one rabbit. You can home two rabbits together – but separately – in a double hutch, which is perfect if your pets don’t get along. You can also choose to get a double story hutch for your single rabbit with a ramp between the levels so that it can explore the different levels at its leisure.

Design Points to Look For

A good rabbit hutch should be weatherproof, predator-proof, treated with animal-friendly wood products and features that make the hutch easy to clean.


FAQs


Q: What is the difference between a double hutch and a 2 tier rabbit hutch?

A: A double rabbit hutch is a structure with two levels that are joined together with a door/window. A 2-tier hutch, on the other hand, is a rabbit hutch with two levels separated by a ramp.

Q: Which type of hutch should I choose between the two?

A: If you have several rabbits and you want to restrict their interactions, then it is advisable to get a double hutch.
