    Any tips to stop pet rabbits scratching all the time?

    We have 2 baby bunnies that love to dig! All the time! We have tried clipping their nails shorter and giving them other things to play with but they still insist on digging in corners! Any tips

    I think it's just what rabbits do! When we had ours we put a chicken wire floor in their run, so they could still nibble the grass through it, but couldn't dig holes and escape underneath.

    Our rabbit for the first 6 months we had him used to chew the skirting board. You had to watch him like a hawk.

    Diversion is the key. If you put something in that area which they can play with, be in a carboard box, or even try getting wooden chew toys, this can work 50% of the time. Try cornering off that area too, to stop them doing that this behaviour now while they are still young and trainable.

    Do be patience because they do stop this behaviour the older they get.
