For most wild animals that would naturally prey on Rabbits - if they see your pets, for most of them it is too much not to try and attack and won't stop unless they can get into your hutch or be scared away.
Recreating the natural habitat
The answer lies in the way that Rabbits behave in the wild—creating a hidden and secluded sleeping area out of the way of prying eyes.
To recreate this successful survival technique, house your pets in a large hutch. Our 5ft and 6ft Chartwell Hutches will allow your pets to become hidden entirely away from foxes when they are most active at night.
By creating a large living area for them during the day, you are also creating a secluded nighttime bedding area hidden behind an internal divider and a Tounge & Grove door.
Add luxuries to the bedding area to keep your pets cosy and calm
Some of our bedding accessories are also an excellent place to look to increase your pet's comfort and security at night.
You wouldn't leave your valuables on show in your car
Housing your pets in a large and deep hutch will mean foxes will generally pass through your garden untempted and unknowing of the existence of your pets. Knowing that your rabbit hutch has fox proof wire adds another layer of security and some more peace of mind for you.
