When you're traveling on vacation, you're not going to be able to bring your pet rabbit with you. With this in mind, you'll need to look into what you can do to keep them safe and comfortable while you're gone. While you can have a pet sitter visit your home to check in on your rabbit, you may be more interested in around the clock care with a boarding facility.
If you've decided to bring your rabbit to a boarding kennel while you're on your trip, consider the following tips that can help make sure that they are comfortable.
Insist on a Quiet Room
Rabbits can often get quite afraid when they hear loud noises and are in unfamiliar places, making it a good idea to find a kennel that has quiet rooms for small animals. If the kennel focuses only on cats and dogs, this can be difficult to find and may not be an option. Contacting kennels and looking for ones that offer boarding services for small animals regularly will help increase the chances that there will be a quiet space for you to board your rabbit.
Make Sure Playtime is Offered
While rabbits may not need the same amount of exercise that a dog does, such as walks and playtime with other animals, it's important for you to make sure that your rabbit gets their exercise every day. Contacting pet boarding facilities and asking about the types of playtime they offer can help you decide whether or not this will be an option for you.
Making sure your rabbit gets some supervised playtime can help them get the exercise they need and keep them happy while you're away on vacation.
Bring All of the Necessary Supplies
Keeping a rabbit comfortable has a lot to do with making sure that they have all of the things that they're used to. Supplies for your rabbit could include everything from their favorite hay to toys that they often play with. Asking about any rules regarding bringing personal items can help ensure that you're able to have all of the supplies that your rabbit needs to be safe and happy.
When boarding a rabbit for the first time, you may be feeling nervous about what can be done to ensure that they are comfortable. Since many kennels focus only on dogs and cats, the above tips can make all the difference in boarding a rabbit and ensuring that they have a good experience while you're gone.

We started exploring the possibility of adopting an animal, and before we knew it, we were bringing home a pet that we knew our kids would love. They were incredibly receptive to the idea of having the little puppy, and after a few days together, I knew that he would become a treasured member of our family.
