      Hi all,

      I have a 3 month Netherland Dwarf! So far, he’s been doing a good job of using his litter box when he’s in his cage. He was pretty stubborn about using one corner, but moved the litter box and hasn’t been too much stray peeing or pooping outside of the litter box!

      I’m trying to figure out how to litter train him though when he’s outside of the cage. How do I get him to use the litter box, without yelling of scaring him? Should I take the litter box outside during play time? Should I get another litter box for outside the cage?

      Any help is appreciated – thanks!

      You should probably start by either getting an exercise pen or setting one up around his cage, litter training him in there, then expand to a single room and eventually the whole house. If he likes using multiple corners in the house, put a litter box in each one and see which of them he uses the most often, then remove the others.

      Good luck!

      First, thank you for your help! Ahh okay, if I start off with a few litter boxes, and then remove them, he’ll eventually only go in the single one?

      A big portion of it is that he’s not neutered. Once he’s neutered he’ll start using his box properly. In general though, while he’s out it’s good for him to have at least two boxes.

      Ahh okay that makes sense. Do you think it’d confuse him if I moved the litter box in his cage outside while he’s out?

      Nope! I do that with my boys too. They’re not bonded, so they’re constantly marking. When they had a bigger space I’d bring out their litter boxes and then have the communal litter box too.
