    Hi y'all, hoping someone can give me some tips on how to litter train my rabbit! He's an indoor bunny for the winter months. Then he's an outside bunny the remainder of the time. Please please any tips or tricks I can do to get him trained would be awesome! Thanks:)

    Put his hay rack or his hay (if he doesn't have a rack) in or above the litter box. They poo where they eat, so he'll naturally sit there munching on his dinner and the poo will go in the tray. As for wee, keep him confined to a small area and keep a close eye on him, put some lino down or something it doesn't matter if he wees on. Wipe up any wees straight away, and throw the paper into the litter tray. It won't take him long to find his wee smell in the tray and start going there for wees as well (if he doesn't already). My bunnies were already trained when I got them, but they naturally will take advantage of having a "spot" to go rather than doing it all over the place. The occasional "nugget" is inevitable, but most of the poo will be in the tray if that's where the hay is.
