Rabbit Runs

Providing your rabbit with plenty of opportunity to exercise – either outdoors or inside – is essential, but it’s even more important to keep your pet safe. Rabbit runs are designed to provide a safe environment for your rabbit to exercise in, and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Here are some popular rabbit runs at the moment.

Rabbit Runs And Safety

You should be aware of the potential safety problems with both indoor and outdoor rabbit runs. While outdoor runs are easier to “rabbit proof” (i.e. there’s no concerns with wires or other dangerous items that your rabbit might chew) you need to be certain that the run is secure against any possible predator. This usually means cats and birds of prey. It’s also important for the rabbit to have an area in the outdoor rabbit run that’s shaded from the sun.

Unless you have other pets, indoor rabbit runs are safer when it comes to protecting your rabbit from other animals. It’s essential to ensure that the run is placed away from electrical wiring or anything else which may endanger your pet. If you’re buying second hand rabbit runs then
