Proof Bunnies like a clean house

Maddie proves that bunnies like to keep a clean house. Her owner asked us to bunnysit for a few days. He had thought a litterbox would be too hard for her to enter with only three legs, so she never got a proper box. But she proved us wrong and took to using it in less than a day. We used techniques that we learned from Kicked, Bitten and Scratched to change her habit of peeing in the left corner and pooping in the center of her xpen. We placed the letterbox in that left corner, moved the xpen so it blocked access to the side of the letterbox, and placed hay, pellets and veggies into the box so she associated it with good things. We also placed the veggie bowl on cup to raise it a bit as she seemed to back onto the plate and do her business there. 

And 1 week later, her owner reports that she has not gone anywhere except her box. Just goes to prove that we need to put ourselves in the bunny’s head when litterbox training.
