When it comes to choosing a hutch for your rabbits, you are not just choosing wood and metal; you are choosing a home for your pets.
When you start to look at the wide variety of hutches out there, you might find the array a tad intimidating. After all, you want to keep things straightforward and simple. Here at Animal Hutches, we have a broad range of stunning hutches from which you can choose. Let's take a look at some of the things you should look for in your ideal hutch.
The first point in Applethwaite you have to consider is how weather resident the hutch is. If you have outdoor rabbits, their hutch should protect them from all the climate can bring. If the wood does not have proper weatherproofing, you could find that it becomes damp and rots. Of course, all our hutches are 100% waterproof, which means that you will never have this problem. You should also think about whether the hutch will be warm enough for your rabbits during the harsh winter months. Hutches with ample insulation are always a smart move if you plan to keep your rabbits outside all year long.
Once you start to look at hutches, you need to check out each one's structure quality. The last thing you want is to have to buy a new home for your rabbits in a year or so. Instead, you want to make sure that you get a hutch that will last a matter of years. The material should be chew resident - this point is extremely important. As you may already know, rabbits have to chew things to keep their teeth from becoming overgrown. That means that they will bite on just about anything they can find. If the material of their hutch is weak, they might bite through it and cause some serious damage. That is why you need to invest in a solid structure that is as sturdy as it is sleek.
Remember, you will have to clean the hutch out on a regular basis if you want to make sure that your animals are happy and healthy. Most veterinarians suggest that you clean out your rabbits' home at least once a week. That is why you need to make sure that the hutch is easy to access. You will need to get right in there and clean the inside of the hutch. Check out whether there is space for you to do so before you buy a particular structure. You should make sure that the hutch is safe for your animals, and that there is no possible way that they could escape.
