Run and Stable

Kaninchenstall Rabbits are very active and active animals that need enough space to feel comfortable. The cage/pen must therefore be as large as possible.

For two dwarf rabbits (these are animals that do not reach more than approx. 2 kg when fully grown), the largest commercially available small animal cage/pen should be chosen if possible.

Alternatively, it is possible to use a two-storey cage where the floors are connected by a ramp. Outdoor enclosures for indoors and outdoors are also available in the shops, which you can put up against the open cage or hutch door.

Larger animals must be offered more space. In any case, the cage/pen must be high enough for the animals to stand up ("man up") and use elevated resting areas.

Here you will find a large selection of hutches, enclosures and accessories for your rabbits:


Kaninchenhaus Cage equipment:
But space is not everything! Rabbits need a varied cage landscape with retreats (hutches) and raised resting areas on which the animals like to stretch out and rest.

In addition, other hiding places (e.g. grazing bridges) should be offered, which the animals can also explore and gnaw on. Your rabbits like a lot of bedding so that they can at least begin to dig. Straw pellets, corncob granules or wood shavings are suitable bedding materials. Never use cat litter!

A hay rack protects the hay from contamination. Only hayracks with a cover should be used for rabbits, otherwise the animals can jump into the rack and injure themselves.

Cage location:
Rabbits like it light and airy, but do not tolerate heat. The cage should therefore not be placed in the blazing sun or in the immediate vicinity of a radiator. The comfortable temperature is 15 to 22 degrees. Rising cold and draughts are harmful and can make your rabbits ill.
In addition, rabbits are typical escape animals and tend to panic if someone leans over the cage from above. The cage should therefore be placed at a minimum height of 60 cm.
Although rabbits are sociable animals and can become very tame, commotion near the cage (e.g. people passing by) and noise cause stress for the animals. The cage should therefore be placed in a quiet area; there should be no sources of noise near the cage (e.g. hi-fi systems, TV sets or noisy pets).
