      I am planning to free roam my rabbit some time in the future but for now I want to bunny proof my room so I can give my rabbit more free roam time. As of right now I have to watch her super closely while letting her out but I would love to start bonding with her. Someone said to ignore her and just let her come to me and sniff me but that’s difficult to do while closely watching her. I think this would also help me keep my room clean. I’ll start by putting up all my stuff close to the ground but other then that idk what to do. I really want to also block off under my bed but idk what to do to do this and make it look half decent. Please help. Thanks

      This page covers the basics and gives lots of ideas on what to do and how to do it: https://binkybunny.com/infocategory/bunny-proofing/

      Also to clarify when I said to ignore her in the other post, what I really meant was pretend to ignore her 😉 So you could be reading a book or watching a movie in the same room, but also be keeping an ear out for her getting into mischief.

      I’ve always found bunny proofing to be an iterative process… you will think you have everything protected, but they might still find areas that can cause trouble so doing only supervised free-roam at first is a good idea. It helps to get down on her level and look for wires, things she might chew, spots she might access that you want to block. Probably the most useful things for me are NIC cube grids, that you can use to block off whatever areas you want (there are some examples of this in that link I posted).

      Hi,

      It’s probably on the link but I used a lot of wood boards from the hardware store to block baseboards and under things. I used wider planks to block off my bed, and attached with double sided mounting tape. It looks decent. I have wood planks along the baseboards, and either stuck smaller wood planks with the mounting tape on the door frames or masking tape. My Ruby literally runs around looking for something forbidden to chew, so in her favorite spots I’ve used 3 layers of masking tape  :/  Also can’t have blanket for her or she chews them, shoes, and clothes.. so have to keep them away from her.  I have natural fiber rugs, foam mats and low pile rugs in different areas to keep her from destroying stuff and for traction…

      Okay I will definitely try most of this. My bunny isn’t much of a chewer but she just has a major issue of peeing under my bed even though she is litter trained. She has a few random things I need to deal with but I definitely think this will help. Thank you
