Our hutches are some of the tallest on the market, which is excellent for your pets welfare. More room means a happier, healthier pet.
The extra height means a slightly steeper ramp and some pets can at first struggle to get used to it. After some practice, the great majority can fly up and down no problem but if your pet is having some problems we've got some tips that help.
Tips to help your little friend conquer the ramp
- Roll out the red carpet. Or any colour really, an off-cut of carpet cut to fit the length of the run is the number one way to guarantee an upwardly mobile pet. Short of a Stanner Stairlift this one wins every time.
- Think outside the box. Keep some of the cardboard from the packaging and cut to the size of the ramp. With a pen or pair of closed scissors run them down the flutes of the cardboard creating hundreds little grippy steps.
- Make Hay While the Sun Shines. Extra bedding or Hay is always a welcome sight in a hutch. We've had a number of customers say that excess hay used on the ramp for a short time gives enough grip until their pets get the hang of things.
