How To Choose a Rabbit Hutch - Size

   When pet parents decide on choosing the right Rabbit Hutch or Rabbit Home, a great place to begin is to determine the correct size. How large a rabbit hutch or home should you purchase?
   As a rule of thumb, most experts say that you should get the largets rabbit hutch or rabbit cage that you can comfortably afford, and that will fit where you need to place it. We always suggest that pet parents plan on keeping their bunnies as indoor pets, and many of the rabbit hutches available today are both stylish and functional and can easliy be set up in a child's bedroom, spare room, family room or even your garage or basement. All of these choices will keep your bunny safer and happier and more engaged with her family members!
   Rabbits will live happier if they have adequate room in their rabbit hutch or rabbit cage. At the bare minimum, small breed rabbits that weigh less than 8 pounds should have a home at least 24 inches by 36 inches. Medium and larger breeds should have at least 30 inches by 36 inches in their living area. Some rabbit homes may offer more than one level, mking these a good choice for people short on available space.
   Bottom line - Alway provide a living area for your rabbit that is at least 4 times her length - but please remember that bigger is always better!
