Does your rabbit like to dig at the carpet? Taming this natural instinct can be a challenge for any rabbit owner. Your rabbit canï¿½t help but to dig into carpet and other areas of your home and garden. By offering your rabbit items to ï¿½digï¿½, you can help redirect this behavior to a less destructive area.
Make an area in your home for your rabbit to ï¿½digï¿½ in. Use an enclosed area or set up a play area with a small pet enclosure. This area should include a carpet mat, a grass mat, a small pillow, a basket, box, or other rabbit safe container to keep paper shreds or bedding like the Soft-Sorbent Scented Small Pet Bedding, some rabbit toys, and anything else that your rabbit might find interesting. You may even want to include a cat scratcher for extra fun.
When your rabbit is outside, try to keep him contained in an area safe for digging. A portable small pet enclosure is great for this purpose and may be moved around your yard when the scenery needs to be changed.
You wonï¿½t be able to stop your rabbitï¿½s digging behavior if your rabbit already is inclined to dig, but creating a special place for your rabbit is essential for protecting your carpet or garden.
